I first started playing golf at the Nevill Golf Club in Tunbridge Wells at the age of 13 and by the age of 18 I played off a plus 2 handicap. Having won the under 23 British Stroke Play Championship, South East Ladies Championship and Sussex Ladies Championship, and having represented England in the winning teams of the Nations Cup and the European Junior championships, I turned professional in 1988. I enjoyed playing on the Ladies European Tour for several years before dedicating myself to teaching and becoming a qualified golf professional.
I have worked at Hilden Golf Centre for the past 25 years where I have helped golfers of all ages and abilities. My philosophy is that no matter what level of golfer, “having fun” should be the number one priority while learning and playing. My approach to teaching is uncomplicated and I believe that a strong emphasis should be placed on the importance of pre-swing fundamentals, which is the foundation of any good golf swing.

‘The technology to analyse ball speed, club speed and swing technique feels very professional, but the best part of my learning with Mark is the individual lessons. I can’t think of any other teachers, tutors, mentors, or coaches in my life whose lessons have been so clear and positive, and left me knowing exactly what I have to do to improve.’

PGA Level 1 Coach
I first started playing golf 20 years ago and have always been passionate about improving. This led to me receiving golf tuition for the last 5 years and becoming a member at Kings Hill Golf Club and playing regularly.
Because of my increasing interest and my daughter’s passion to play, I started to volunteer and assist Growing Golf coaching sessions at the weekend. After doing this for a year, I decided to further my learning and attend and pass the PGA Level 1 coaching course. The course consisted of planning, delivering and evaluating coaching sessions. During this time I learnt the skills needed to independently coach players to ensure their development and progression in a safe environment.
My main coaching objectives are to ensure each player enjoys, learns and continues with their golf development via interactive and enjoyable coaching while improving their technique and knowledge. After completing my qualifications I feel I am in a position to help players keep improving and reach their goals!

I strive to share the learning experience with the person I am working with. As a golf coach I want to help and develop people to maximise their experience within the game of golf. I have found that for a person to reach what they are capable of, their whole person must be in balance. I work with the person using the vehicle of coaching, to assist the person to be aware of what they can be, by being balanced. By growing a person’s existing knowledge and facilitating their awareness, they access the ability to be self-sufficient and can self-manage themselves and their performance.
I work with a large range of people, from professional golfers and amateur players to new golfers and everyone in between. Although the needs of this vast group are different, they all want the same thing ‘SUCCESS’. This coaching style allows the person to be a part of the learning process by sharing the experience, rather than being ‘told what to do’.
My point of difference is that I will not ‘tell’ you how to play golf. I will work with you to support you as a whole person, by coaching you to find the balance within yourself. I am mindful that playing to one’s ability is more than just the golf swing, it involves a number of skills.
