Golf coaching is all about you and what you want to get out of your game. We pride ourselves on being good listeners and aim to provide the best possible professional advice, whilst ensuring each lesson is tailored and enjoyable for the golfer.

Why Coaching?

We’re 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.

Think back to your last few rounds and try to pinpoint an area that cost you shots…

Maybe, you had too many three-putts as a result of poor distance control? Or did you miss too many fairways to the right meaning you had to chip out sideways? It could be that you play well in practice rounds with your friends but struggle to replicate that in competitions?

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

Lessons will cover:

  • Golf Fundamentals
  • Swing Basics
  • Short Game
  • Long Game
  • Course Management

Ian Welsh - Club Technician

Started playing golf back 1969 after seeing a poster in high school for golf lessons under the guidance of Jimmy Taylor, the Pro at East Kilbride GC. Left school in 1974 to take up the position of assistant pro to Jim Farmer at Drumpellier GC. Left in 1975 to take the position of first assistant at Musselburgh GC with Tom Stango. Tom encouraged me to play as much competitive golf as I could. At this time golf tourneys where few and far between for Assistant Pros. Notable mentions 3rd in the Scottish Assistants Championship at Crieff GC. Left in 1977 to take the position of first assistant with Lawrence Farmer at West Middlesex Golf and Squash Club. Lawrence was a great player and coach and certainly helped me through my PGA training. He later went on to coach some of the best ladies in England. Allison Nicholas and Mellisa Reid to name a couple. Also quite a few Solheim cup players and the English Curtis Cup squad.
