Lessons


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.

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

Nick Ellis - Head PGA Professional

I have been based at Naunton Downs Golf Club since the club opened in July 1993, over 20 years! I gained my PGA qualification in 1997 and took over as head professional in 2000. During the past 20 years we have tried to create a warm welcoming and friendly golf club where people can come and enjoy the facilities with all the traditional values you would expect of a golf club but without the stuffiness. We have a fully stocked shop which will cater for all of your golfing needs. We stock the top brands including PING, Titleist, Motocaddy, Nike, Srixon, Callaway, Odyssey, FootJoy, Cleveland, Glenmuir, SkyCaddie and many other brands. Just because we don’t stock it - doesn’t mean we can’t get it! As a member of the largest buying group in the county, Foremost Golf we have access to most brands. If at all possible we will price match other stores and online sites, please give us the opportunity.
