Stay, Learn & Play

Jack Nicklaus once said,

Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain it: work.

Luckily, in the game of golf, work shouldn't always equate to pain. Rather than spend long hours on the lesson tee beating balls and be done, the Slieve Russell Academy "Stay, Learn & Play" approach makes learning enjoyable and long-lasting.

Book a discounted stay at the Slieve Russell resort, and take advantage of the one on one student to teacher ratio, in-depth instruction, and quality time on the course.
