Contacted Peter at very short notice when my partner said she would buy me some golf lessons for my birthday. I had always talked about “having a go” as all my friend play but had never taken it further. Despite the short notice Peter was able to accommodate me for lessons over 5 days. The lessons themselves were excellent. Peter’s... More

My wife, son and I went back again for another week with Peter Lester. The sun was shining and Peter was on good form. Over six days we alternated between the range and the course.

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

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.
