Max Evans takes fiancée Lauren for her first golf lesson at The Springs

Date: 13th August 2019
Author: Sarah Twist
Publisher: Darwin Escapes
Park: The Springs Golf Club

Darwin Ambassador and Dancing on Ice star Max Evans took his wonderful fiancée Lauren to The Springs for her first ever golf lesson, here’s how it went…

The Springs Golf Club in Oxfordshire is home to one of the best golf courses in the area and offers competitive membership rates, stunning scenery and a range of social events throughout the year.

Max is a member at The Springs and enjoys playing here as much as he can, but this time he thought he would take his beautiful fiancée Lauren Jamieson for her first golfing lesson. We caught up with Max after the lesson and asked him all about what Lauren thought and how they enjoyed the time.

Q&A with Max Evans about Lauren’s first lesson

What were Lauren’s thoughts about her first golf lesson?
Lauren thoroughly enjoyed her first golf lesson! I’m not going to take too much credit for my golf coaching ability as she’s a professional dancer and naturally understands rhythm, which is also complemented by her athletic physique.

Do you think Lauren would go again?
First thing she said when we got home is, “When can we go again.” The answer is yes.

Did Lauren find the game/rules easy to follow?
To be honest, I didn’t touch on too many rules, more basics to how the game is played and golfing etiquette. Little details about repairing pitch marks (she really liked doing that) and explaining when to play certain shots and the greens and bunker rules of play. I think she understands fine.

Did you enjoy the time as a couple?
Absolutely loved it! It’s my dream to have a family life like the one I’ve been so lucky to have. My Dad is a golf pro and taught my Mum how to play, so I’d love to play golf with Lauren and our future kids, just like my brother and I did with my parents.

Would you play together again?
Of course! I can’t wait to play again.

Would you recommend other couples go for a game together?
100%! No matter what skill level either member of the couple is, it’s lovely to be outside together in beautiful scenery, being active (but not crazy active) together.

What did Lauren enjoy about The Springs course?
I think I chose the best time of day for her lesson and playing the course and The Springs was looking stunning with the evening sun and sunset. Although she has nothing to compare the course experience too she loved the holes with the water and the way the sun was reflecting off it.

What was Lauren’s favourite part of the lesson?
When she flushed (hit the middle) her driver for the first time. There’s no better feeling for any golfer.

So Max and Lauren had a lovely time at The Springs for Lauren’s first lesson and it sounds like they will be back again soon!
