My name is Michael Whitfield, I’m a golf coach based in the Northeast and provide golf coaching and lessons to individuals and groups across the region.

1 Hour Lesson
I can provide individual 1 hour lessons which can give you a sample of what benefits you could get from taking further lessons with myself or to simply focus on a particular aspect of your game. The lesson is fully inclusive of all range balls used in the lesson.
1 x 9 Hole Lesson
A 9 hole lesson is the ideal environment to look at strategy and shot selection or maybe focus on a particular shot or situation that you normally find challenging.
Half/Full Day Lesson
Provides the ideal solution for golfers looking for sustained improvement in their game but who maybe don't have time to commit to regular lessons. The half and full day sessions are fully inclusive of all range balls, green fees, lunch and tea/coffee.

Typical Full Day Itinerary

On the one-day course, you will have the opportunity to not only put your new found knowledge and skills to the test, but work on course management, decision making and shot selection during a nine-hole playing lesson.

At the end of the day, you will be presented with your own personally tailored coaching plan that you can work on afterwards to ensure that your game continues to improve long into the future.

  • 09:15 – 40, 60 & 80 Yard Pitch Shots
  • 10:30 – Coffee Break
  • 10:45 – Chipping & Speciality Shots Around The Green
  • 12:00 – Bunkers & Lob Shots
  • 13:00 – Review & Future Development

Typical Half Day Itinerary

If you feel that your full swing is sound but your scoring does not reflect this, the half-day short game school could be perfect for you as it looks specifically at the ‘scoring zone’.

More than half the shots during a round of golf are played from inside of 100 yards; therefore it is an extremely important area to focus on. Developing the ability to confidently play ‘feel’ shots from any situation is something you can learn to do equally as well as some of the best in the game.

As with the one-day school, you will be presented with your own personally tailored coaching plan that you can work on afterwards to ensure that your game continues to improve long into the future.
