World-Class Golf Tuition On A Daily Basis

The coaches you will be studying under at The Golf College are outstanding in their individual fields. The Golf College is delighted to include Master Professional Denis Pugh, who coached Colin Montgomerie to eight European Tour Order of Merit wins, Founder and Head Coach Paul Lyons, and our coaches Tim Spence, Jack Bado, Ben Clayton and Adam Seabrook.

Each of the coaches at The Golf College has a distinct speciality.  Tim’s focus is on Tournament Organisation and Ben’s speciality is Short Game, where he is coach to many PGA Cup players and tournament professionals.

Jack Bado joined the team in 2012, after completing his PGA Training. Jack is a former golf college student, so fully understands the environment in which the students train. His former knowledge of student life, combined with a great enthusiasm for ensuring each student reaches their potential, makes him a valued coach & "student liaison".

Adam Seabrook has a degree in Applied Sport & Exercise Science and has worked with professional athletes from a range of sports. Adam is also a Level 2 Qualified Gym Instructor.

Paul Hurcombe is a former golf college teacher, whose role now is Pastoral Care & Student Counsellor, ensuring that every student is working towards his or her goals. Paul frequently visits the college at Lindfield Golf Club, and takes time to speak with each student on a one-to-one basis, to allow students the opportunity to discuss any problems they may be having. Anything discussed is confidential, so the students can be confident in discussing any matters of concern.
