KNOWLEDGE & UNDERSTANDING
There is no point in asking you to embark on changes to your positions or movement if you do not understand the reason for such changes, so I always like to ensure you have the clearest possible understanding of them.
Rocket science it is definitely not but you will be given relevant information, and video footage when appropriate, to allow you to progress knowledgably and positively.
Every teacher has a particular style and I am no different. Three teachers have influenced my teaching over the years.
- John Jacobs for his vast knowledge and demeanor
- Jim Farmer for his technical expertise and clear delivery
- John Stirling for his sense of humour and delivery
These three wise men of golf have shaped my personal teaching philosophy, which is simply to…
- Know your subject
- Deliver well organised instructions with clarity
- Make the experience enjoyable
There is no greater gift than a skill for life, and golf tuition vouchers make a fantastic present.
You choose their value and the recipient then takes the lessons at a time convenient to them.
Simply call or email me I will send the voucher to you within a day or two.
The large number of tuition offerings means that it is impossible for me to cover every scenario.
Once I know your tuition requirements I will be pleased to give you the relevant price details.
So whether you would like to enjoy improvements in your own golf or treat a friend to some lessons, contact me now by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me direct on 0774 007 2000.
My tuition comes in several forms:
Half or one hour golf lessons
Long or short game lessons
Playing lessons which include course management
Half hour lessons can put your game back on track if your fault is a simple one to fix, but I suggest your first ‘Personal’ golf lesson with me should be for one hour to allow for a full and correct assessment. This assessment will also include an equipment check to ensure your clubs are not an unnecessary handicap and that they compliment your ‘Golfing DNA profile’.
I am constantly asked if I do a course of lessons and my ‘PRO PLAN’ is the most popular format for long term improvement and game development. This plan gives you versatility in your tuition and consists of a one hour assessment lesson followed by a further five x 30 minute lessons, or three 30 minute lessons and a 5 hole playing lesson. As well as giving you all round game improvement, this plan is cost effective too and gives you the equivalent of seven x 30 min lessons for the price of 6.
The ‘EXECUTIVE PLAN’ is an extension of the ‘PRO PLAN’ and it consists of a one hour assessment, followed by six x 1 hour lessons or four x1 hour lessons and a 9 hole playing lesson.
Rather than using video as a separate form of tuition, I prefer its selective use for enhanced understanding and proof of positions. Images can then be e-mailed to you to tie up with the lesson details and serve as a reminder for your practice (video clips are provided at no extra cost)

If you would prefer to learn with other people of a similar standard, I host one hour lessons for groups of between 2 and 6 people. As all group lessons are tailor made just let me know how many are in your group, what is the current general standard of play amongst the group and which day of the week and time suits you best. I will then structure the course content to include long game, short game and playing, all at a cost effective price.
WINTER GOLF/TUITION WEEKS
My Winter Golf /Tuition Series is quickly growing in popularity, as golfers are increasingly fed up with cold winters and wet courses in the UK and northern Europe. From humble beginnings of one week in February 2017, I will be running 10 weeks in the 2018/19 winter months.
The schedule on the home page features great venues and courses, and the group coaching will typically include …
- Chipping & pitching
- Greenside and fairway bunkers
- Putting & green reading
- Course management
Each participant will also receive two 40 minute 1-2-1 lessons on separate days, and will leave with a game improvement plan.
From the moment the group meets on the opening night, it virtually becomes a bespoke week. There is the opportunity to play five rounds of golf on excellent courses, but as with the tuition, each participant can go at their own pace and opt in or out to suit their needs. Time off is important in golf and there will also be the opportunity to sightsee or simply relax at the venue during the week.
With a limit of 9 players each week, it is my intention to golf with the group on 2 of the days and I like to play 6 holes each round with each 3 ball. The golf is all very relaxed but for those with a competitive edge I run an informal stableford competition each day. Club golfers of all handicaps are welcome, as are single golfers.
Re cost, the 2018/19 Winter Series prices are as follows …
- Marrakech: November ’18 and February ’19 £1250
- Antalya: October ’18 and March ’19 £1290
- Costa Navarino: April/May ’19 £1590
NB. These prices are based on sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements are available upon request. Flights are not included in the prices as participants come from all parts of the UK and Europe.
All enquiries, expressions of interest or bookings should be directed to Cecile Couval of experienced golf travel company Golf Par Excellence.
I will also happy to answer any questions you may have.
Please join me for a week of enjoyable golf and company, and let me improve your game at great venues.
