The Gym Session for Your Golf

Do you want to see steady and ongoing improvement in your golf? Purposeful PracticeTM is about establishing fundamental techniques and continuously refining your skills to be effective in all areas of the game.

"Technique and Skill are not the same thing".
Purposeful PracticeTM is designed by Dr. Noel Rousseau to fill the chasm left by traditional approaches to golf coaching which is the ongoing skill acquisition. 
The PP concept is of structured group practice with Noel giving technical feedback, setting skill challenges and creating game simulations to maximise your practice time.

You will work on key aspects of technique and the fundamental sub-skills necessary to play the game well. Skills such as club face control, dynamic stability, impact dynamics, kinematic sequencing and that's just the long game. 

Core principles of motor learning and mindfulness of task are harnessed to ensure that you develop a deep and robust control of the skills and can apply them on the course.

Fundamental Drills - Constant Feedback - Measured Skills Challenges

"The sessions have allowed me to combine focused practice of my own development areas under the watchful eye of a pro, providing feedback and "tweaks" as I practice. My game and confidence has really improved as a result of these courses."

Frequently Asked Questions

There is something wonderfully motivating about training in a group of like minded golfers committed to improvement; at what ever level that may be.This, after all, is the basis behind a gym class.

As long as you want to keep improving. There is no improvement without time and commitment so although the courses currently run in 20 week blocks (with flexible booking, you can have the odd week off), they will run back to back throughout the year.

This is not suitable for beginners but beyond that, anyone committed to improving their game and supporting others in the same quest. Typically, a group is made up of a mix from 6 to 28 handicap. A handicap is not a necessity but attitude effort and reflection are.
