Golf Lessons

We aim to promote golf as being a sport for life, which can be played and enjoyed by people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of ability

Whether you are an accomplished player or simply looking to get into the game, the best way to grow your game is to book a lesson with one of our dedicated coaches.


Golf is truly a game for all ages and we believe you are never too young to start. Sign your child up for our individual lessons and give them the confidence to play on any course with anybody. Our dedicated team have over 17 years’ experience working with children so you can be sure they are in safe hands. Our golf coach will communicate in terms the children will understand meaning this very technical game can be made simple and most important fun!



No two swings are the same and there is no one quick fix to a golf swing. Book a lesson with our coaching team; get individual feedback specific to your body movement, and swing speed. Our aim is to work with the positive parts of your swing and tweak it, giving you the best results possible. There are many different ways to hit a golf shot, you can be sure we will not try to fit you into somebody else’s mould in these individual lessons. Whether you are a non-golfer, wishing you could hit the ball or a golfer trying to lower your handicap, this facility is perfect for all levels.



The principles of golf are the same for everybody. You will find many of your fellow golfers struggle with the same problems as you. Whether it is a high slice or a snap hook, we can give you the simple tools and know how to stop these happening regularly on the course. Book into our group lessons and benefit from our general coaching points that will cover all the major don’ts in golf. Pick up tips on course management as well as chipping and putting advice all of which are guaranteed to save you shots on the golf course.
