Golf Coaching Northeast

Introducing a simple, cost effective approach to professional golf instruction with lessons and lesson packages tailored to meet your needs.
Since 2006, I have offered a comprehensive range of individual lessons, group lessons and lesson packages to golfers of all ages experience and abilities, at Knotty Hill Golf Centre, Sedgefield on the Durham and Cleveland border in the North East of England.

Knotty Hill Golf Centre has some fantastic practice facilities, including two covered driving ranges, two outside ranges, two chipping greens (one with a practice bunker) and two putting greens. There are a selection of courses that vary in difficulty that are ideally suited to introducing novice golfers to the course as well as perfecting skills of more accomplished players.

In that time I have helped golfers cut countless strokes from their handicap, introduced beginners to the game, assisted golfers in achieving their goals of winning club competitions etc, as well as helping people get more fun and enjoyment out of the game.

Knotty Hill Putting Green
Knotty Hill Millenium Suite
Knotty Hill Bunkers

Full swing lessons take place in the Millennium Suite, a purpose built, covered, teaching bay at Knotty Hill. For lessons on chipping, pitching, bunkers and putting we would use one of the dedicated short game practice areas.

I also have an indoor putting station installed so putting lessons can still take place in inclement weather. You will also have access to the latest golf technology during lessons. Find out more about the technology, and the benefits of using it, on the LESSON TECHNOLOGY & PRODUCTS page.

The technology I use is designed to ‘enhance’ your lesson and I never allow it to ‘overtake’ the lesson however, I’ve found it excellent at simplifying the changes we make allowing golfers to progress quicker.

Some people are hesitant about taking lessons as they fear that the coach is going to 'rip everything apart' and make them start again. I have found that this is almost never the case.

My coaching philosophy is that your strengths are highlighted and your weaknesses improved upon. Any changes that we make are focused on improving the quality of the strike on the ball along with ensuring you find the target. It’s very much a case of making a golfers swing functional rather than it looking perfect on camera.

Clients can choose from single lessons; however, the lesson packages offer a cheaper, more cost effective alternative for those seeking long-term, sustained improvement as they include added benefits such as a free initial assessment and a personalised coaching log to further aid development. Lesson packages can start from as little as £5 per week.

A selection of golf lesson gift vouchers are also available and make an ideal gift for golfers looking to improve.

Vouchers can be purchased directly from me and are also available at Knotty Hill Golf Centre.

I also offer both one-day and half-day golf schools, ideal as a gift or for golfers who maybe don't have time to commit to regular lessons. These schools offer a 'one stop shop' for improvement in your game and combine all the key features of the improvement pages in one session.

Details of these schools can be found on the packages and prices page.

During the lessons I use Hudl Technique swing video analysis. This analysis software not only allows you see your swing alongside some of the world’s best pro golfers, but is great for feedback as a video review can be sent after the lesson to aid in continued development. Not only is this great for normal lessons, this software also enables distance coaching, useful if you don't have time for regular lessons. A client can simply record their swing on their smart phone, iPad etc and email it to me. From there, I can analyse it and send it back to them with suggestions for improvement. Please contact me for availability and pricing if this is of interest.
