Customer reviews - what you say about Glenmore Lodge

Really thorough course where we made the most of the time and progressed it at a good rate, covering so many aspects and getting out to a few venues. It felt also like it was tailored to the 2 course members so we got to ask all the questions we had built up beforehand. 5 days was a good time to see yourself improving and learning. The instructor was excellent and knew how to challenge us but also make us feel safe and in control. The venue was great, it was so nice to meet people on all the other courses and do some networking and chill and enjoy the lodge in the evenings.
