Enjoy better golf with our professional golf coaching
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.
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.

- One-to-one golf lessons
- Group golf coaching
- Short and long game masterclasses
- Weekend & after school group golf tuition for juniors
Lessons will cover:

I've had lessons with James since November 2021 and he's helped me improve my game markedly. I have more confidence in my swing and I've dropped 2.5 shots from my handicap and feel like I can drop further. I've upgraded my clubs with his advice which I've found to be practical, honest and specific for my game. Pricing was also matched to internet supplier prices.

I am a 68 year old golfer and have been coming to James for a couple of years now, during which time my handicap has gone from 23 to 15. James is an excellent coach and our sessions are always enjoyable and I leave with my confidence boosted.

James and I first met at a time when I had lost my enthusiasm for the game. James made modest changes to my grip and posture, which immediately added 15/20 yards to my seven iron. The improvements, together with his suggested drills, translated to the rest of my game and the next club medal saw me break 100 with a gross 93. Included in that was a run of tee shots hitting ten consecutive fairways. I look forward to, and thoroughly enjoy each lesson. James has given me back my enthusiasm for the game.
Stuart Earnshaw - Visitor
I was referred to James by a colleague because of his extremely strong reputation for patience and for getting results. I cannot recommend James highly enough; he explains the complexities of the golf swing with great clarity and has put back the enjoyment into my game to such an extent that my golf swing has gradually improved and I can now play to a respectable level without fear of embarrassment.
