Golf Lessons & Tuition
CHRIS COLES - Head PGA Professional
Chris has been at Saltford for over 7 years, and during this time has completed his PGA Degree to become a fully qualified PGA Coach. He has coached a wide variety of golfers, of all ages and abilities, ranging from complete beginners to Somerset County Representatives. Alongside his coaching Chris has developed his own playing ability, progressing from being a Somerset Junior County player, to regularly competing in PGA West Region events, and achieving highly on the Gloucester and Somerset circuit. By gaining both coaching and playing experience, Chris has been able to build his own coaching beliefs. He has been fortunate to purchase a Flightscope X3 which tracks the ball and displays ball and club data which adds a new element to his coaching and overall provides his clients with an all round informative experience.
During the years Chris has become involved with coaching the Somerset Girls Future Squads and is starting coaching with the Somerset Boys Futures too. In addition to this, he has been working closely with the local community, including the Stroke Association Group, whereby he has provided people with the opportunity to try golf for the first time and be involved in fun activities whilst working together in a group. Chris also works closely with the Bath Rugby Foundation, which specialises in working with disabled children and young adults, introducing them to golf.
Chris' Coaching Philosophy: - "I believe every golfer is different, from different swing patterns and techniques to different thought processes and strategic thinking. This means individual coaching styles must be used for each player. I do not believe that 'one model fits all' and take pride in my ability to assess and adapt my coaching for each player I meet and to work within the means of the person in front of me. This means that I am constantly learning and therefore constantly bring new ideas and thoughts to lessons"
