Escape to an relaxing and transformative 2-day golf wellness retreat.
Re-discover your love for the game!
Take a day (or weekend) out for yourself – Improve your golf & your well-being
Venue: Brooklodge, Macreddin Village
Date: 6th and 7th April 2024 POSTPONED
“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 the perfect time for you to reflect on your golfing season.
Did you get your handicap down as planned at the start of this year?
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
- what you can do throughout the winter months to be ready for an amazing golf summer in 2025!
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 and Nutritional Therapy, having conducted hundreds of workshops and talks, as well as years of practising meditation, mindfulness, yoga, pilates and strength training, and simply being fascinated by mindset & golf connection, Ilona Madden will be your main facilitator of this weekend. There will be golf instructors and yoga/pilates teachers and other experts as well for the Full Body/Mind experience.
Gift yourself the space and time to look at golf in a holistic way!
