Aphrodite Hills Golf Aim Point Seminar


The Golf Academy at Aphrodite Hills Resort ran Aim point sessions with European Senior Coach Jamie Donaldson.

Jamie Donaldson, who coaches many of the top European players including Padraig Harrington and Stacey Lewis, ran 4 sessions over the weekend of 16th - 17th February. It didn’t take Jamie long to impress all 40 participants over the 2 days with his knowledge and the Aim Point system for reading the greens. Andrew Darker says, "as a golf professional of 24 years “it’s unbelievable and incredibly simple to learn”.

Aphrodite Hills will be inviting Jamie back later this year to conduct further clinics, so stay posted!

In the meantime if you want to make more putts why not have a chat with one of our pros and see what they can do to help you read the greens! If you would like more information please contact Andrew Darker at 357 26 828 200 or via email andrew.d@aphroditehills.com.
