The Warren Estate is home to the David Brooks Golf Academy, where the goal is simply to help you achieve your goals in the game. Whether the ambition is to learn, improve or excel, you will find a team of coaches dedicated to moving your golf forward.
Developing golfing skill takes time and patience but can be accelerated with guidance from a specialist coach. The starting point is a review of your recent performances to highlight strengths and identify any inconsistency in the golf shots you are hitting. We then analyse impact and your golf swing to identify the cause of the ball flight problems you are experiencing, before agreeing a plan to resolve these.
Coaching sessions vary for timescale and cost depending on which coach you work with.
Our Short Game Schools are for golfers who want to improve their performance around the green, lower scores, and gain a new level of confidence in the short game. During the day we cover how to
- Build a reliable technique for putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play
- Make practice time effective and enjoyable
- Improve feel and control of distance within the short game
- Overcome nerves and deal with the pressure of competition
- Play from difficult lies around the green
- Increase confidence and feel good about the short game
Schools run between April and October, details on cost and dates are on our academy website.
Our junior coaching sessions focus on golf skills but also include a mix of games to develop general sports abilities. We use fun and engaging activities to develop your child’s understanding of the different aspects of golf, resulting we hope in a lifelong interest and enjoyment for your child.
We run a full schedule of junior coaching sessions and school holiday golf days for 5 to 16 years old, please contact us for more details.
