The Recreation Department also offers the services of experienced physiotherapist Rosemary Rhodes (UK trained), who has spent a considerable amount of time in Melbourne, Australia and in Dubai studying with Ramsay McMaster, the world's leading golf physiotherapist.

With an increased understanding of the game and its technicalities, she found herself treating golf related injuries and applying the knowledge of assessing postural imbalances and core stability to all levels of golfer including many active on the European and Asian Tours.

Rosemary now specializes in postural screenings for golfers. Screenings help identify physical limitations that may be affecting the individual's swing. This process includes video analysis, assessment of posture and range of joint movement and muscle power to establish imbalances or deviations from the norm. From the screening information, specific stretches and corrective exercises are advised, to match individual requirements.
