Paul, Thank you for your feedback. I look forward to working with you both on stage 2 next spring. I am pleased to hear that the specs i gave you for buying your first sets of clubs were spot on.

I would highly recommend Peter Lester. I have only been playing since February and have had a few lessons with various teachers in the uk and abroad but this was by far the best! He worked with me last week in Vilamloura and took me back to the foundations of golf. He improved my stance, fine tuned my grip with... More

I have tried 4 or 5 difference coaches and none ever quite lived up to Peter's standards...my golfing bad habits have had time to build up over 12 months so... More

After taking a long break from dabbling in golf, I got three lessons from Peter. Everything was very well organised and the lessons have given me a new insight into the fundamentals of the golf swing. I now have an understanding of what a good golf shot looks like and more importantly what causes the bad shots. Peters tuition has... More

Hi Declan, They were 3 very productive sessions. We were able to quickly identify the issues and to agree the small tweaks that were required. I was very impressed with your ball striking and with the new direct trajectory and less side spin, I am sure you will find the game a lot more fun. Keep me updated on your... More

I visited Four Seasons in Vilamoura last Autumn and again in April. Both of these visits included a series of golf lessons with Peter Lester for me and a friend who had never played golf before. We both enjoyed our lessons enormously and I commented in an earlier review about Peter's excellent talents as a teacher. Since returning from the... More

Gary and I had 2x2hr and 1x3hr session with Peter. At the end of the lessons we were hitting the ball with confidence and accuracy (mostly). Peter was very patient with us and his observations and corrections to our swings will hopefully help us to improve.
