Why Coaching?

Coaching Philosophy

In my opinion coaching is about creating an environment that facilitates learning and performance for the student.  This is achieved by creating a holistic and measurable approach to a students learning which allows the student to have greater self awareness and enable them to self manage their game. 

We are passionate about helping you play better golf.  Every golfer enjoys the game more when they're hitting good shots and playing well.  This is our mission for you.

Through our experiences in the game, our continual professional development and PGA education, we appreciate that every golfer is different.  That is why we offer a range of lessons and packages to suit everyone.

Lessons will cover:

  • Short Game
  • Long Game
  • Gapping Session
