Dave Pelz Golf Schools pitch up at Foxhills
Golfers eager to sharpen their short-game skills can combine state-of-the-art facilities and a world-renowned coaching progamme thanks to a new link-up between Foxhills and Dave Pelz Golf Schools.
The historic Surrey resort’s state-of-the-art new short-game practice area, which opens this spring, will host an initial series of three Dave Pelz 3-Day Scoring Game Schools (April 12-14; May 3-5 and May 31-June 2), which can see huge improvements to golfers of all abilities. More dates are also expected to be added later in the year.
With the first session taking place on Masters weekend, it’s fitting that defending champion Patrick Reed is among the many students of the Pelz methods, which played such a pivotal role in his success at Augusta last year.
The programme, which costs £1300 for the three days, incorporates tailored tuition for small groups of participants as they benefit from Pelz Golf Institute’s scientific approach and attention on distance wedges, pitching, chipping bunkers and putting.
Every Pelz school includes an analysis of each student’s game, classroom theory sessions and outdoor execution sessions with one instructor for four students.
The finishing touches are being added to the new short-game facility at Foxhills, which features two practice bunkers, synthetic hitting areas and a 650 square metre green at a cost stretching well into six figures.
And director of golf, Chris Fitt, believes the Dave Pelz Golf Schools is a welcome addition which underlines Foxhills’ commitment to quality coaching and practice.
Fitt said: “Every golfer understands how vital it is to find the right method with their short game and Dave Pelz Golf Schools can make a massive difference.
“We now have these fantastic new practice facilities available at Foxhills and it’s a great way to put them through their paces. Anyone who attends these programmes will see major benefits to their game.”
A former NASA scientist with a unique analytical approach to the game, Pelz founded his schools in the late 1980s and structured the programme to meet the needs of all handicap levels with trained instructors providing the hands-on expertise.
Pelz said: “Foxhills’ new short-game facility is the perfect location to put our methods into practice.
“For golfers, it’s important to note that 80 per cent of shots lost to par occur inside of 100 yards and two thirds of the shots in any given round will be in that range. Our students leave our schools with a working plan and very useful skills to continue their practice after the course.”
