However, the good news is that my golf has improved amazingly since having your coaching. I now feel like I know what to look at when things aren't going quite right, I understand what shot to make and I've got much more power and a better connection with the ball. On Friday I shot 51 at Carterton even with a 7 on the Par 3 9th hole.

”These first few weeks have been fabulous! Mary makes you feel very welcome and gives great constructive feedback. I'm always looking forward to the lessons (even though it's been super windy every time!).”

Coaching sessions are an awesome start to this sport. These lessons are great fun as well as being very informative. Mary Gard'ner has a wonderfully bubbly manner and her delivery is excellent. I highly recommend these lessons.

Mary’s program is a worthwhile investment for those wanting to get (back) into golf. It offers comprehensive instruction on technique and strategies in a fun yet focused environment. Mary’s passion for coaching and growing the game is contagious, to the point I took an emergency Uber from Hataitai to Shandon not to miss a class! Thankfully her lovely husband brought me back

"The beginner women's golf lessons with Mary have been a great way to get into golf again. I have done beginner courses in the past but golf post-lessons didn't last very long. Mary has given me the confidence to try again and I really appreciate the group play in the latter half of the lessons. Mary has created a fun and friendly environment for learners and I feel like I will have a good group of friends to play with after these lessons."

Thank you Mary. I really enjoyed the course and it has set me up well to head out with my husband to practice and have a laugh. The tournament tonight was a great way to finish off. Hopefully see you in June for a tournament.”

Thanks very much for such a great course Mary. Your passion for the sport and your students is amazing.
Bryn and I really enjoyed it and it's been great to do it together and meet so many friendly people along the way. Membership sorted yesterday and our first cards are in - we'll be working towards gaining our handicaps over the school holidays.
