My name is Gavin Clark and I am a junior and adult golf coach with 25 years’ experience.
I started playing golf when I was 11 years old, 25 years ago. I loved sport and golf was no different – I couldn’t wait to get out on the golf course and copy my idols.
Practising as much as I could, I was hitting balls for hours and perfecting my swing, grip, backswing etc, or so I thought. I was achieving all these positions in the golf swing I thought were important – I was the one on the range, fixing my faults.
At the end of all this practice, I had got worse!! How could that be? Why was golf different to all the other sports I had played? Why was golf a difficult game? If you’re honest this may ring true to you too.
The great news is that golf isn’t different!
Fortunately I found a golf coach who encouraged me to develop skill as opposed to having a perfect looking swing. He encouraged me to just hit lots of different shots, to play by feel as opposed to achieving positions in my swing.
I now play golf the same way I learnt other sports. It’s had a massive impact on my playing and coaching.
I want to be the coach that helps you to be the golfer you know you are and to enjoy playing the game.
The natural and instinctive way I coach is effective and most of all GREAT FUN.
Golf is not a hard game!
I am a PGA member with 25 years of coaching experience.
I coach at Winter Hill Golf Club in Cookham, Berkshire where I have been for 25 years now.
I have also just taken on the Coaching role at Huntswood Golf Club in Burnham, Bucks.
I still love to play the game, and I am passionate about exploring and developing my own game. I compete on local and regional golf tours.
If you’d like to join me in a Pro-am please do get in touch with me.
Gavin provides entirely appropriate coaching to my level. Never too much information, never confusing, appropriate instruction to my level of golf. And my golf has improved out of all recognition. I highly recommend Gavin to you.
A refreshing way of coaching. Gavin focused on making me think about what I'm trying to do with the club head rather than over-engineering or re-engineering my swing or grip. Thanks
Jack loves his lessons with Gavin. He has a great way with children making it fun for them to develop their skills and love of golf! Highly recommend!
Organised Gav for a small group lesson for my 8, 11 & 12 year old. All had played before and Gav made it really good fun for them and they all left saying they really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend for Kids and Gav’ calm and humorous nature 👍
Gavin has a real skill in connecting and engaging with the juniors. Our children always come away having learnt something new, but also enjoyed their time.
Our son has done a number of golf clubs with Gavin that he really enjoys. Gavin is always a professional, enthusiastic and great golf coach.
Both my children and I have lessons with Gavin, great instruction communicated in an easy to understand way for both the kids and myself and most importantly he makes it fun. Looking forward to getting back out on the range and course soon with him.
Gavin is an excellent golf coach and has really helped me improve my game, my children have also had lessons with him and have thoroughly enjoyed them
