You CAN teach an old dog new tricks…

If you’ve followed CAVA for a while then you’ll be familiar with Mike’s love of sport. He’s now in the twilight of his cricketing career, and so decided to take up a sport that would still provide competition and keep up the “dressing room banter.”

Having played occasional golf for a number of years, Mike took up golf more seriously in  July 2018, joining Greenmount Golf Club in Bury, he now plays off a handicap of 22.


GGC recently arranged group coaching lessons with professional Mike Bardi at Golf Rossendale Driving Academy, Marl Pits. He’s had 6 lessons with 6 more booked and has definitely seen an improvement in his golfing abilities, with an aim to get his handicap down to 18 by the end of the  Summer!

Take a look at Mike getting some swing practice in below!
