golf coaching

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!
