As an avid sports person I always played competitive sport whilst growing up and represented my golf club at Junior level before playing at University as a single figures handicapper; but never took golf as seriously as football where I played and represented my county and West Wales through the age groups before playing Welsh league through my university years. However Golf has always been a passion and very much remains so today.
Whilst too old to continue playing football I have now started coaching junior football which is where my interest in developing young children has initiated.
Having worked for the past 20 years for Lloyds Bank within Finance I recently took the decision to leave the bank and follow my passion of playing golf. I set myself a target of becoming a scratch golfer by the end of September 2021 to enable me to play in the Euro Pro Tour Qualifiers... I am still hoping to get there!! (watch this space)
Whilst following my own golfing ambitions and coaching football at junior level I came across the Golfstarz brand and started talking to Mike, Roger and Geoff who are the brainchild of the brand... it soon became evident that we were all on the same page in relation to how golf needed a new fun way of developing young children into golf... and here we are with GOLFSTARZ WALES!!
Sport should always be FUN at a young age. Coaches should provide an environment where children can make friends; have fun but develop their skills... and at Golfstarz we will make sure that happens!
As a new brand we are still looking to develop and secure venues to bring the Golfstarz coaching methods to Wales.
At the moment we are looking at starting with the following 3 venues (Dates and times TBC)
- Garth Olwg Life Long Learning Centre Sports Halls
- Llanishen Leisure Centre
- Tonypandy Boys and Girls Club
MORE VENUES WILL BE ADDED AS SOON AS WE CAN!!Click to Book coaching
