Villa Dragao Verde – Quinta Do Lago – Algarve – Portugal
After doing several golf retreats worldwide – we realised that there was always something missing, whether the diet, fitness or psychology aspects of the week. Hence we came up with Total Golf. A week that encompasses all the aspects of playing golf, and suitable for all levels.
Golf lessons will be at the new Quinta Do Lago driving range which also includes European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley’s golf academy and the Taylor Made fitting center. A half day short game school will also be included during the week.
By passing on his vast amount of knowledge and tour experience to the academy instructors, golfers will be assisted in improving their technique, their strategy and ultimately, their score.Paul’s long tour career made him realize that golfers have a swing DNA.
Just as you can’t find two humans with the same DNA, you won’t find two golfers with the same swing! Based on that principle, the academy’s team of professionals focus on each golfer’s individual strengths and weaknesses to achieve the best results. Visualisation and feedback are vital keys for effective learning.
The state-of-the-art coaching tools guarantee the most accurate analysis to help you correct and improve your long and short game techniques. At the academy, their team of highly qualified professionals use technology such as video analysis and FlightScope to complement their instruction and take your game to the next level.Confidence, of course, is key to everyone’s game. Working on your game on and off the course means a lot more than simply improving your swing.
McGinley’s team will help you see the game through the eyes of a tour pro enhancing your confidence and enjoyment of the game.

Golf performance conditioning is a new golf training program designed to teach your body to move more freely, optimizing your golf swing and releasing your potential, is at the acclaimed “Active Q” fitness center – used by golf professional Rory McIlroy – and compliments the golf lessons.
Bio-mechanical movement research and 3-d video analysis have shown that restrictions in joint movement patterns, control or range of motions, and muscle imbalances will be causing faults in your golf swing, which limit your potential for improvement and increase your chance of injury.
A personalised golf fitness program will be created which you can then implement once you arrive home. There will also be a talk on golf psychology.
Food for golf will be organised by SPA chef Alan Wichert – the menu will be different to our regular HHH retreats – it will be focused on the energy requirements needed for a full day of golf and including on course health snacks to boost concentration and help with fatigue.

“If you’re looking to tone up, shed a few kilos or a dress size, HHH Health Retreats are the way to go. Everyone leaves refreshed, lighter, slimmer and I swear the circles under my eyes disappeared. I can’t recommend the retreat highly enough.
I lost 2 cms on my chest, bum & hips so I left a happy camper. Not to mention my radiating skin and smile ear to ear. And the amazing detox cuisine. Like seriously, the best food I have ever eaten. AND it was all good for you.”
