Enjoy better golf with our professional golf coaching


Golf coaching is all about you and what you want to get out of your game. We pride ourselves on being good listeners and aim to provide the best possible professional advice, whilst ensuring each lesson is tailored and enjoyable for the golfer. We balance our coaching to cover all aspects of the game, ensuring you not only hit it better but also score better. 

Why Coaching?

We’re passionate about helping you play better golf.

Every golfer enjoys the game more when they’re hitting good shots and playing well. This is our mission for you.

Think back to your last few rounds and try to pinpoint an area that cost you shots…

Maybe, you had too many three-putts as a result of poor distance control? Or did you miss too many fairways to the right meaning you had to chip out sideways? It could be that you play well in practice rounds with your friends but struggle to replicate that in competitions?

Through our experiences in the game and our PGA education, we appreciate that every golfer is different. That’s why we offer a range of lessons and packages to suit everyone.

Lessons will cover:

  • Golf Fundamentals
  • Swing Basics
  • Short Game
  • Long Game
  • Course Management

Jack Gibson - PGA Professional

I’ve been a member of the club for 11 years and started off with a 26 handicap. I was selected for my first of 3 junior inter insular matches in 2011. I also represented La Moye in both Hampshire 7’s and first team matches. In 2015 I left Jersey to attend college in the US at Davis & Elkins College in West Virginia. I played for 3 years on the team where we managed 3 wins and 3 second place finishes throughout my time there. After graduating in 2019 I decided to stay in WV and at Davis & Elkins college and assist head coach JD Lamm in the running of both the men’s and woman’s golf teams. After working with both teams for a season I realised that coaching is something I really want to pursue further. I am looking to get involved heavily in junior coaching as they are the future of both the game and our golf club going forward.
