Northwick Park aims to be Number One

7.15am 28th September 2006 - Corporate

Northwick Park, the groundbreaking golf complex in Harrow, London, launches a brand new coaching concept this weekend after appointing Premium Golf Schools to manage all teaching programmes at the unique facility.
The launch is part of Northwick Park’s drive to establish itself as the UK’s #1 golf teaching centre.
Premium Golf Schools have instigated the UK’s first ‘profiled’ approach to public golf instruction at Northwick Park – one of the country’s most exciting and family-friendly golf centres.
On Saturday 30th September between 1pm and 5pm, golfers are invited to go along to the venue and meet the new coaches, pit themselves against new skills tests and receive a free game assessment. While on Sunday 1st October the highly qualified on-site coaches will officially launch a series of new classes, designed to offer an organised game improvement programme to golfers of all abilities.
Premium Golf School’s innovative approach at Northwick Park is to ‘fingerprint match’ its coaching and training techniques to each individual golfer’s needs and ability.
The friendly golf school is set in a perfect learning environment – Northwick Park is free from some of the rules and conventions of traditional golf clubs and is open to anyone interested in golf from youngsters to more senior and experienced players.
Jimmy Wallace, general manager of Northwick Park, said, “This exciting development will establish Northwick Park as the number one golf teaching centre in the UK.
“The huge range of programmes that Premium Golf Schools supply to golfers of all abilities and ages is unbeatable, and the unique nature of Northwick Park means golfers can practice and learn in a relaxed, friendly and informative environment.”
Alex Nicolson PGA, Surrey county coach and co-founder of Premium Golf Schools said, “Our aim is to provide easy access and bespoke coaching to anyone who wants to enjoy the game of golf.
“Our approach recognises the fact that people learn in different ways and at different speeds, so we have avoided a ‘straightjacket’ approach to instruction and make use of a diverse collection of coaching experts.
“At Premium Golf Schools we tailor specific coaching programmes to help maximise each of our golfers’ potential – but they dictate the pace.”
Premium Golf Schools co-founder Hugh Marr PGA, head coach to Surrey Golf Union and recently voted by Golf World as one of the UK’s ‘Top Teachers’, said, “The improvement benefits of our approach are as outstanding to a player who is new to the sport as they are to a 2 handicap and beyond. We are very much about enjoying the journey of golf improvement – rather than just focusing on the end in mind.”
Under the arrangement with Premium Golf Schools, Northwick Park, located at Watford Road, Harrow, Middlesex, will also become one of the UK’s key centres for the popular Young Masters Golf junior golf coaching programme.
