Experience Days offer an amazing variety of pamper days, sightseeing tours, adventure days and flying experiences, over the next ten months I will be making my way to as many as possible to get you guys the inside scoop! Want to know more about what I’m doing?
My first journey was to the lavish Marriott Hotel for a round of golf! Well, I have never been on a golf course in my life and this lesson took me by surprise! Not only did I enjoy golf, I wanted to come back and do it again! I’m more of an extreme sports fan, so playing a round of golf had never crossed my mind. However, this is certainly a sport and experience to recommend! My lesson started with the very basics (I am a beginner!) on how to hold the club and how to swing. My teacher for the lesson, Jason, was patient and had the perfect golfing eye to get me swinging like a pro…well I was on my way!
After ‘perfecting’ my swing and managing to hit some golf balls…yes I did miss some! I then moved on to putting – which is a lot more difficult than you would think! Jason had me doing exercises and made sure I had plenty of time to get a few of the balls in before ending the hour lesson.
There’s my first lesson under my wing. I can now be let loose on the driving range, with 100 balls to practice my swing on, I have plenty of time to remember all those helpful tips! Before, collecting my complementary gifts from the Marriott – 3 balls, plenty of Tees and a handbook, I’m taken out for a tour of the golf course and given £10 towards lunch – more than enough for a delicious Marriott meal!
There we have it, a highly recommended experience and enjoyable day out! Here are some more pictures from my day…
