Golf Tuition Holidays with Stuart Smith PGA Professional


Golf de la Luz work in partnership with The Stuart Smith Golf Academy to offer high quality residential golf tuition holidays in Spain and Portugal.

Stuart has over 20 years professional coaching experience and uses every part of it in making sure that he delivers a beneficial lesson to you each and every time.

Stuart has spent the last 12 years focusing on the short game and has now established himself as one of the leading short game coaches.

His book "7 Steps To Heavenly Chipping" and 2 training aids designed by Stuart are currently being sold throughout Europe, USA & Canada.  The "Putt Easy" is under the Odyssey brand and the "Connect Easy" strap is branded Callaway. 

So, don't miss out on a chance to transform your short game, as well as having a great time with other golfers at fantastic venues just like many other golfers already have:

"Fabulous trip, impressive golf course, and it was great seeing old friends and making new ones. Lots and lots of laughs !!! Well done Stuart."
"Great golfing holiday! First timers on one of Stuart's "short game" improvement holidays and came away with so much more understanding of all aspects of chipping, pitching and putting! Couldn't wait to get out and put into practice what we had worked on."

See below for details of Stuart Smith Golf Academy residential tuition breaks which cater for all ages and standards of golfer, so why not contact Stuart now on 07766 733560 or email stuart@stuartsmithgolfacademy.com to discuss your requirements?

Upcoming residential tuition breaks are as follows:


5* Elba Palace Golf & Vital Hotel – Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain, 2nd – 9th February 2019

  • Twin £1325pp 
  • Single £1625pp
(flights are included)
 
  • 7 nights at Elba Palace Golf & Vital Hotel 5* Fuerteventura half board
  • Unlimited Golf at Fuerteventura GC including trolleys
  • 1 range token each day
  • All tuition
  • MAX 24 GOLFERS
The course does not offer electric trollies but do have buggies and I would need to know ASAP if you require one.
 
Stuart says "This is an ideal location for the time of year with temperatures of around 23 degrees, making this perfect for golf just as it was in February 2018.
For this trip I have priced up staying at the Elba Palace Golf & Vital Hotel 5* as the course is on site and is one of only three 5 star hotels on the island. 
The prices do reflect this, but I can ask for a price if you wish to stay at the Elba Carlota 4* as this will be a cheaper option (just have to use the courtesy bus to get to the course).
I have not included flights or transfers in the price, as this will add approx £100 per person above what you can get flights and a taxi for (hotel is 10 mins €15 in taxi). 
I have looked at potential flights and you can fly from either Stansted or Gatwick on the 2nd February and the price starts from £116pp return.
 
This week will be all about how to Shoot Lower Scores, and for that to happen you will be working on the key areas in your game, which are Alignment, Driving and 80-50 yards and in; improve these and your scores WILL improve."
 
 
 
ITINERARY
All tuition will commence before play and you will be split into two groups of 12. One group having the lesson 9-10am and the other group 10-11am.
 
SATURDAY 2nd February 2019
Fly out to Fuerteventura and if you arrive in time play 9 holes.
 
SUNDAY 3rd February 2019
ALIGNMENT – I am going to make you work in pairs so that you can check each other constantly (and whilst playing), to make sure you are aimed correctly. I am going to give you a routine that IF you stick to it then you will see an improvement in all your shots when playing.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Texas Scramble which will allow you all to have your alignment check whilst out playing.
 
MONDAY 4th February 2019
DRIVING – Going to work on improving your impact position for this club which will help with distance and accuracy (you can’t win a game from the trees!) and extra distance is always welcomed.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Social game.
 
TUESDAY 5th February 2019
PITCHING – Here you will learn the correct set up and very simple technique that is required to make this part of your game stronger and a game changer.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Greensomes, men partnering men and ladies with ladies. Again this will allow you to check each other’s ALIGNMENT.
 
WEDNESDAY 6th February 2019
CHIPPING – A quick check on set up before going in landing zones. What they are, where they need to be, how much run you get etc. An understanding of landing zones will transform your chipping, giving you much more success from around the green.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Social game.
 
THURSDAY 7th February 2019
CHIPPING – You will learn what the 7 Steps To Heavenly Chipping are, and in turn then be able to decide which is the correct way to play every chip. The ability to make a correct shot assessment is vital in playing a successful shot.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Texas Scramble, again another chance to have your alignment checked.
 
FRIDAY 8th February 2019
PUTTING – We will focus and achieving a pure roll on the ball each time you strike a putt and pace control. Pace control is way more important than line when putting.
Tee Off 18 holes from 11am – Social game.
 
SATURDAY 9th February 2019
Fly home

Stuart says "Get your game ready for the season is what this week will be about as the main focus will be on – Driving, Pitching, Chipping and Putting (with a small look at bunkers).      
There will be morning tuition everyday where you will be split into two groups and then you will have a choice to play 18 holes or take more tuition in the afternoon between 2-4pm. The extra tuition can be decided on each day to what area of the game we cover. To help get your competitive edge up, there will also be a running stableford competition where your best two rounds of the week count, with a ladies and men’s winner (Optional), and a Texas scramble, or you can just play a social game every day.
I’ve wanted to come to this resort for a few years as the golf course is an amazing Jack Nicklaus design, and has hosted the Volvo Masters for 5 consecutive years, and the hotel is a beautiful 5* resort, but its practice facilities have let it down, or that was until now. They have just built an excellent short game area which will enable us to carry out some great work on your game, as well as a driving range for the longer shots. On the Sunday, I am going to try and organise a trip to the local Sherry vineyards for those that fancy a day off from the golf. (Extra cost)

Golfers do walk this course, but it is advisable to use a buggy so please let me know which you prefer to do upon booking. A £150pp deposit is required to secure your place."

Stuart says "Ryder Cup Style Format - This trip is definitely for those of you of that like to have a competitive edge to a trip mixed with tuition.

This trip will have tuition laid on for those of you that wish to take advantage of it in the mornings, and then the Ryder Cup style game will be in the afternoons.

On the day of arrival there “might” be a chance of nine holes, but I won’t be able to confirm this for sure until nearer the time. On the evening of the day that we arrive, we will make the draw in front of the group to see which team you will be on, with a maximum of only 12 golfers per team. Each evening both teams will announce the playing order to see who is playing against who, and on which course. During the week there will be one practice round, followed by four rounds of Ryder Cup style pairs matches over 18 holes and one singles game over 9 holes, which will determine the winners. The format for the games will be - Four ball better ball, foursomes, four ball better ball, foursomes, singles and each match will be worth 1 point. 

Tuition - There will be time each day to have your any part of your game checked and tweaked and a full days advanced short game tuition in the middle of the week."
