A GROUP of higher and further education golf students travelled to Portugal for warm weather training.

They headed to the excellent facilities at the Dom Pedro Vilamoura Resort for the annual development camp which is a large part of the college’s winter provision ahead of a hectic year of competition both at home and abroad.

The travelling party comprised of 31 higher education students, 15 further education students and six members of Myerscough College and University Centre staff.

They played rounds on various Portuguese courses including Laguna, Millennium, Old Course and Pinhal, while also enjoying world class training facilities and expert technical playing advice from a quality support team.

Rick Daniels, Myerscough College and University Centre’s Golf Performance Director, said ‘’We’ve now completed more than30 development camps in 15 years, and once again our players followed an intensive programme of coaching and playing. This is a continuation of Myerscough’s plans to ensure our students are given the most advanced and thorough preparatory schedules available.

‘’The coaching focuses on all aspects of their game in conditions conducive to good golf, including warm up preparation, long and short game practice and gym sessions. Players also experience a number of rounds of golf over differing courses that the resorts have to offer, whilst staying in luxurious accommodation.’’

Myerscough College and University Centre golfers have three sides who compete in the British Universities & Colleges Sport Northern Leagues under the banner of UCLan, with teams playing in the BUCS Premier Division and Division 1A. The students also successfully play on the Collegiate & Prospects Golf Tours.
