Golf Academy

It’s hard to beat the feeling of striking it ‘pure’ off the deck with a long iron. Perhaps it’s why so many people fall in love with golf. Funnily enough, it’s the very same reason a lot of people fall out of love with this game.

Golfing legend, Ben Hogan once said, “The most important shot in golf is the next one”, which describes golf to a tee. Above all, it’s a game of consistency and that’s exactly what resident pros Ian Triggs and John Collins can help you achieve.

Together they bring experience, skill and expertise that can only be described as world class. From one-on-one tuition to group clinics, for both adults and juniors, they’ll help you find your true swing, improve your game, and even share a few secrets known only by a tour players.

Adult coaching

Whether you’re just starting or want to iron out a few small kinks in your game, the first-class facilities and first-rate team at Brookwater can help make sure you always find your sweet spot on the course.

Ask any pro and they’ll tell you their game always has room for improvement. It’s why when they’re not on tour they’re on the course, at the driving range or the putting green honing their skills.

For most of us though, simply finishing a round closer to par can feel like winning a major, and coaching is the best way to achieve this. Whether you’re just starting out or playing off scratch, Brookwater’s world-class adult lessons and clinics can help add a new level to your game.
