Not having ever really been behind a golf club, we decided to take a golf lesson whilst holidaying in Portugal. Peter was just fabulous. A true professional , but had a brilliant way of teaching and coaching us. Within minutes we were driving the balls down the range with some level of competency. We went back a day later to... More

I have used Peter and Clare before and feel they go the extra to help with bookings of accommodation and golf, also answering any and all questions. hence why I will continue to use their help when booking.

At the last minute I booked a three day golf lesson package with Peter. His style of coaching is very intuitive, developing your existing swing rather than totally rebuilding from scratch. He has lots of good ideas and tips, which he articulates in an easy to understand style. He was also able to arrange accommodation and transport with the local... More

I travel regularly to the Algarve and have lessons with Peter each visit. He has a very engaging and easy to understand style of coaching and has tremendously helped me improve my swing and lower my handicap (7). I would definitely recommend Peter to golfers of all levels as the go-to golf coach in Vilamoura. Tony

Visited Vilamoura last year and returned there again a few weeks ago. On both occasions myself and my son had the pleasure of receiving golf lessons from Peter Lester. Peter organised both trips including hotel, airport transfers, green fees and lessons. Everything ran as smooth as clockwork. Peter's coaching style is fantastic - he simplifies everything and explains the fundamentals... More

My wife and I booked a beginners golf school week with Peter Lester in October. The service that Peter and his wife Claire provided from start to finish was absolutely fantastic. During our 5 half days of golf school we covered all aspects of golf, from grip, set up, swing of the various irons, drivers, bunker shots and putting. There... More

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!

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.

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
