AboutLeah

"Surrey Sports Coach of the Year 2014" 

My Background

Started golf aged 13 at the wonderful Warren & Teignmouth GC, Devon 

After just 2 years of picking up the clubs I was down to 9 handicap and playing for Devon County Girls and Devon 1st Team. At the age of 18 I broke the course record at China Fleet GC, shooting 2 under par and have also won several Club Championship Titles at both The Warren and Teignmouth GC.

I was extremely lucky to learn golf on two of the most picturesque golf courses in Devon. Both courses are extremely windy and I quickly learnt the importance of being able to get off the tee and keep the ball in play. My learning and development involved being on the course rather than on the range, as both courses did not have a range on site and limited practice facilities. This upbringing and experience has certainly shaped the way I teach today as In my eyes there is no better way to learn then getting out there and encountering random scenario's that the course can throw at you. Whether you are a first timer or have been playing for years my advise is get out on the course, get creative and play!
