A shining example

“Cottesmore is a shining example of how junior golf can and should be, and if there were many more like this in the county/country we would be in a much stronger position in the sport.”

Matthew Warwick, England Golf

On such a high

“Thanks Calum. The boys were on such a high when they got home. They loved it!

Mrs N Havard

Very professional and completely relaxed

“If you have trouble with your golf you have to go to Calum! Top coach! Lessons are conducted in a very professional and completely relaxed manner. Calum is great in identifying and addressing golfer’s faults. 5 stars from me.”

Victoria S

Something they can both do together

“I just wanted to say how much my two enjoyed themselves yesterday. With a 4 year + age gap it is so nice to find something they can both do together. We will definitely be re-booking for the summer.”

Mrs C

A great skill

“After struggling to improve a handicap of around 14 I asked Calum to take up a challenge of getting me to single figures. My first round after 1 lesson was an 8 over round. Calum has a great skill of not only making some fundamental changes but ensures that you have a clear understanding of what’s happening in all aspects of a round of golf. This makes each round a pleasure whatever the resulting score. I would not hesitate to recommend Calum to anyone wanting to improve their golf.”

Barry C

The team at Cottesmore have inspired my son

“Calum and the team at Cottesmore have inspired my son – the only sport that he willingly attends with a constant smile and enthusiasm. He has visibly improved and enjoys the challenge and camaraderie of the group lessons”

Mrs T Watts

Professional and fun

“My children have been coached at Cottesmore for the past 2 years by Calum and his team. The coaching is not only professional and fun but done with a great deal of understanding of the various ages and personalities of the children being taught! The junior days and other competitions are a great opportunity for the children to practice their skills and show their competitive side.”

Mrs J Pearce

I love it when I have a lesson with Calum

“I look forward to Calum giving new targets each lesson. I then know what to improve on and what I can do to do a better shot. I love it when I have a lesson with Calum!!!!!”

Lucy (aged 10)

My son’s development in less than a year has been incredible to see

“It’s great to see the children being taught and developing in every aspect of the game. Improving their shot making skills and learning to respect the course and their opponents. On a personal note my son’s development in less than a year has been incredible to see. He looks forward to his time at Cottesmore and his improvement is testament to the coach’s patience and hard work.”

Mr N Pirie

A haven

“A haven where children are not viewed as an inconvenience but rather an opportunity.”

Mr A Greig

I love my golf at Cottesmore

“I love going to Cottesmore to play golf, meet new friends and have lessons too.I love the competitions best. Sam is a brilliant coach and Calum always gives me lots of encouragement in the tournaments and competitions. I love my golf at Cottesmore.”

Toby (aged 10)

A great balance of learning, practise and generally developing ‘good sportsmanship’ behaviours

“I wanted my son to learn golf in an environment that offered a good structure without taking away the fun. This is exactly what the Cottesmore Junior Academy provides. The combination of Academy lessons, time on the course and competitions, provide a great balance of learning, practise and generally developing ‘good sportsmanship’ behaviours.”

Mr R Fillion

It has also taught him some good life skills

“My son has been going to the Academy for around two years and not only has he improved his game but he now has a lot more passion for the sport too. It has also taught him some good life skills. I think the coached are fantastic and would highly recommend them. The only downside is that my son now beats me”

Mr M Hussain

Loves the group lessons

“My son joined Cottesmore last year and loves the group lessons and the various organised competitions which allow the children to learn the importance of golf etiquette and the rules whilst keeping it fun and enjoyable. The events are well organised and the buzz of the prize giving after some of the events really helps the children get involved. I would not hesitate to recommend this academy to anyone and it also gives you, the parent, the opportunity to join in and play various competitions alongside your child which we have thoroughly enjoyed.”

Mr C Chilton

My seven year old has become a golf addict

“My seven year old has become a golf addict following a week at Cottesmore’s Summer Camp in 2013! The staff are fantastic and are doing an excellent job nurturing his talent and helping him build confidence in his game; all the while maintaining his attention despite his excitable personality. On top of that it is very affordable, which is often contrary to what many parents believe. Give it a go!”
