See what they say!

“Paul has kept me going during my time playing this extremely frustrating game! Regular coaching using the video analysis has helped massively especially been able to review the lessons afterwards as a reminder.”

Golf Club Member


“Being away on tour for weeks at a time means I can send my swing over at anytime if I feel that something is not quite right or sometimes I just need confirmation that everything is looking good.”

Ladies European Tour Player


“From the day I started Paul has been very patient and through regular coaching I am now playing 18 holes and loving it. Couldn't have done it without the academy membership.”

  • Do I need any golf knowledge?

    Not at all. On the beginners academy no prior knowledge is necessary, we will explain everything.

  • What equipment do I need?

    We'll run through this but ideally at least a couple of clubs to begin with, a putter and a 7 iron. You will require more clubs as the course progress's. The intermediate and advanced courses we would expect you to have a set of golf clubs.

  • How do I access the course?

    You can access the course from any desktop computer, tablet or smartphone device with an internet connection. Our software is also very clever and remembers your progress so you don't have to remember where you last finished.

  • How does the 30 day money back guarantee work?

    Hopefully you'll love it as we guide you into golf or help you become a better golfer. But if for some reason you decide it's not for you, you can get a full refund of your course within 30 days of your enrolment on 12 month course memberships. You can cancel your membership at any time but if you cancel after 30 days you will not receive a refund. If you are paying monthly you can cancel at anytime, you will not receive a refund but your monthly subscription will stop. Unfortunately once you have cancelled you will loose access to your course, your PGA Professional and the community group.

  • I'd like to sign up but i'm not 50 yet?

    That's no problem at all, you are still more than welcome to sign up. We found that vast majority of people new to golf that joined our academy at the golf course where approaching or over 50. This made us think of aiming a course specifically for over 50's.

  • Instructor

    If you need any more information about the Beginners academy send Paul a message

    And just a bit about  your instructor, I am a PGA Golf Professional based at Halesowen Golf Club in England and have been coaching for almost 30 years. Helped many people of all ages and abilities take up the game and hopefully many of them are still playing today. From a family of golfers, two sons who play off low single figure handicaps and a daughter, Flic Johnson who has played on the Ladies European Tour for over 10 years including a couple of wins. Coached Flic from the age of 5 to become one of the youngest to win the Ladies English Amateur Championship before then turning professional. But still my greatest passion is to help club golfers shoot better scores and get more enjoyment from the game and encourage as many people as I can to take up this great game.
