My experience of learning to play golf with Mirjana Hendija was absolutely fantastic. I am extremely grateful because by Mirjana’s side I’ve learned everything about this beautiful game in a very short time. If you are a beginner, or if you just want to improve your game, there’s no one better than Mirjana to help you. Her lessons make everything that once seemed complicated and hard become so easy and simple. She knows how to relax you and raise your level of confidence, and she explains everything in such a simple and acceptable way that already after a few lessons you start playing golf without even realizing it. I had never done any sports before, and I thought of myself as a total anti-talent, especially now in my fifties and with already several health issues. However, watching my husband play golf, I decided to give it a try. My husband supported me but I thought it was a mission impossible and I didn’t believe I would succeed. I tried with a highly recommended golf instructor but it wasn’t working for me. I was constantly tense and rigid, and I was afraid of everything – the golf club, golf balls and all those rules. It seemed like I would never learn how to play. However, I then met Mirjana, and with some very useful advice she managed to relax me. She showed me a couple of simple exercises, she taught me the basics of swing, and after only 2 lessons she took me out on a beautiful golf course. One year after, I won a tournament on that same golf course! I completely fell in love with golf… and also with the way Mirjana, always with the same dedication, teaches you to play golf in only a couple of lessons, to enjoy the game, and how she, in an unobtrusive way, gives such useful advice which you will never forget. Also, with the same ease, she can lead you from being a beginner to quickly improving your game and becoming a winner!
