Simon Townend PGA Professional for 18 years – click here for Simon’s profile.

Professional at Cavendish Golf Club since 1997
Teaching Pro at Peak Practice Golf since 1999

Every golfer’s swing is different. My aim when teaching is to help my pupils to understand their swing better and how best to improve it. Lessons are tailored to suit the individual whether the beginner, the weekend player wanting to maintain their handicap, or a keen low handicap golfer looking to improve their golf further.

To introduce children to golf, I deliver free coaching sessions at local schools. Children regularly progress to taking the game further at Peak Practice Golf Driving Range and local golf clubs. Group lessons are then carried out at Cavendish Golf Club, where the children are taught the basics of the swing.

Older children who have already got to a good standard of golf are helped using the video analysis equipment.

The excellent all-weather facility at Peak Practice Golf is the perfect place to learn for beginners. For more advanced golfers, we use the Gasp computer software which enables us to analyse golf swings in detail, to slow down, freeze and compare swings with top tour pro’s. After learning the basics of the golf swing, Cavendish Golf Club offers the perfect transition with the short game practice facilities needed, before taking on the full golf course experience.
