Escape to an relaxing and transformative 3-day golf wellness retreat.
Re-discover your love for the game!
Take a weekend out – improve your golf & your well-being!
Venue: Orlagh House, Rathfarnham
Date: 1st and 2nd April 2024
“Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball where it lies.” –
This weekend will be perfect for the start of the golfing season.
We will cover
- how you can keep your energy and concentration up during your game – with the right nutrition
- how you will stay mindful and fully present – and in the zone – for the full 18 holes
- the perfect stretches and movements to keep your body in the flow, flexible and strong for the game
- what golf can teach us about resilience and life
- how you can set realistic and achievable goals to get your handicap down
We will do this by using various tried and tested methods that demonstrate life-changing and transformational results for your golf and overall wellbeing & health.
Golf can teach us a lot about life. It can be frustrating at times and exhilarating at others. Often, we approach a healthy lifestyle in the same way – we start full of enthusiasm, have one blip and give up because we feel we just can’t do it. Bringing together years of experience in health & lifestyle coaching, Nutritional Therapy, elements of life-coaching, mindfulness practices, golf specific exercises, mindset training, business training, Ilona Madden and Caitriona Fogarty will be your main facilitators of this weekend.
Gift yourself the space and time to look at golf in a holistic way!
