Golf coaching

The Golf Academy is at the heart of golfing life at Slinfold Golf & Country Club and is here for all your golf coaching needs.  For beginners through to advanced players, our two full time Golf Professionals Joao and Matthew can support and enhance your game with a variety of group and individual lessons and a comprehensive golf coaching service.  

Coaching is based in the Academy Building at the Driving Range, alongside our 9-hole Academy Course, providing an excellent environment for practice and tuition.  With Junior golf sessions starting at age 5 years, there are term time classes and Golf Camp courses during school holidays.  Weekly Ladies and Seniors Section roll up coaching sessions take place to give expert tuition and guidance on all aspects of the game, plus beginner group and individual lessons take place on a regular basis.
