Working on the driving range all day and teaching a huge amount of people from beginners to the more experienced players he built up a routine of his own for getting across the complexities of this game through to the pupil in a simple and easy way.

After five years of that he moved onto Fulneck and East Bierley Golf Clubs.

Jeff believes that the last five years have been the most rewarding as he has been able to spread his wings a bit more and open a retail and repair shop, as well as building up the teaching to a new level.

Jonathan Oates Qualified Golf Professional

“The thrill of seeing students improve is a driving force in my teaching. My belief is that all students are unique and that not one specific teaching style can be used for everyone. My focus is to develop a routine and group of skills that will last for the long term and that will deliver consistent results.
