A GOLF centre is bucking the trend when it comes to attracting new golfers after installing an all-weather coaching area.
Portsmouth Golf Centre, in Burrfields Road, recorded an 11 per cent uplift in lesson income and improved sales through its pro shop in the first four months of 2016.
Owner Terry Healy put it down to his investment in a new all-weather coaching area created by Huxley Golf.
He said: ‘We always strive to offer our customers the best and that’s why we chose Huxley Golf to design and install a fully-rounded coaching area for us.
‘Coaching here is a more interesting and attractive proposition now. It has opened up options for small group lessons which participants, and our PGA Pros, find extremely beneficial.
‘My coaching team is over the moon with this first-class facility and it will help me retain the talent I have here.’
