The English Golf Union (EGU) is offering 12 golfers the opportunity to experience its coaching programme normally reserved for the country’s top amateur players.

As well as getting the chance to play The Hotchkin course at the National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, ‘The England Experience’ will involve behind the scenes coaching of what goes into training top amateur players, including short game and swing technique, psychology and conditioning.

Coaches include Gary Smith and David Ridley, both Golf Monthly Top 25 UK Coaches, and Dr Brian Hemmings and Andy Larmour, responsible for taking players such as Richard Finch, Ollie Fisher, Chris Wood and Ross Fisher onto the professional circuits.

Gary Smith, Lead Coach of the England Squad said: “This is such a unique opportunity to experience exactly what England’s top amateurs experience and have access to the coaching and knowledge only usually available to those at the top of their sport.

“Most players turn professional after following the EGU’s England programme; we can’t guarantee that result but we can guarantee the same guidance already provided to names such as Oliver Fisher, Chris Wood and Richard Finch.”

The 12 candidates will benefit from coaching aimed to cover all aspects of their game with personal guidance designed to improve their overall performance.

This not-to-be-missed coaching experience costs £799pp including all food and accommodation. Further details about ‘The England Experience’ can be obtained via The EGU’s website.
