It is prime golf season at Millbrook right now, the course is groomed to perfection and post-NZ Open it is looking just as sharp as the day pro's themselves played it. Don't miss the chance to enjoy these still Autumn days and play a round for yourself!

It's easy to sit back at events like the BMW ISPS Handa NZ Open and critique people's play. But anyone who has picked up a club knows the chips don't always fall the way you want them to... and that in fact often your strategy needs to change day-to-day depending on what part of your game seems to be refusing to listen to your requests!
The pros and amateurs who play the Open know only too well that how well you maintain composure and consistency throughout a multi-day competition is the key to getting your name on the leaderboard. That and a little luck perhaps! Millbrook's own Peter Smith who played this year can attest to that.

With this in mind we thought we would share a couple of tips from our resident Coach Ben Gallie on ways to help gain you the edge you need on those days on the green. Recently we created a 35 video series on Youtube with loads of tips and tricks to improve your game, these three videos are a small selection of this series.
