We started learning to play golf with Richard this winter in the range on his monday sessions for ladies.
Now the weather is better we are out on the range and having great fun!
Richard is a very patient teacher and we are all improving as well as meeting a lot of new friends and really enjoying learning.

I have had the occasional lesson from other golf professionals in the past but Richard Coffin's approach was different:
1. First he checked my physical state of health.
2. Next he asked very carefully on what I wanted to achieve before even holding a club.
3. Having seen my swing he kept the message simple and direct.
4. He proved after 15 minutes a visible change in the result.
What happens long term depends not on him but on how much effort and time I am willing to invest.
Believe it - I found it great at the age of 79, that I can still improve my game.

Hi Richard, as you know I was struggling, but thanks to you after three lessons I played my best round ever last week- 77 gross at Tiverton 46 pts. Many Thanks.
