The Sussex based Golf College announced today that it was launching its new 2010/11 Programme, which will now include a full 10 week term at their winter base in Bont Mont on the Costa Dorada, in northern Spain.

Paul Lyons, Managing Director of the Golf College, commented: “The new 2010/11 programme represents a major step jump forwards for the Golf College. We have now radically restructured our core programme in order to enable our students to spend a whole term at the winter base we have established at Bont Mont. We are confident that with our students avoiding the English winter in its entirety, we will be able to help them accelerate their game improvement by virtue of their being in the perfect learning environment. What’s more, we’ve managed to achieve this without having to increase the fees.”

Lyons also announced some key additions to the Golf College staff: “We’ve now bought on board Jason Gilroy as our putting coach, and Matthew Ellis, the former Glenmuir PGA Championship winner, is also joining us. Matthew will be focusing on the psychological aspects of the game, so we are now confident that we can offer our students a truly 360 degrees approach to their game improvement.”

Denis Pugh remains the Golf College’s Master Professional, and will be providing regular coaching to the young golfers who attend the new programme. Denis has taught hundreds of Tour professionals, including Colin Montgomerie the 8 times winner of the European Order of Merit. He is currently coaching 2009 World Cup Champions Francesco and Edoardo Molinari.

Lyons concluded: “We are confident that with the extended stay we are offering in Spain, access to a top quality Robert Trent Junior designed course, and the recruitment of two new key professionals, the Golf College will be offering a uniquely different, high quality, opportunity to young golfers who want to advance their golf, whilst progressing their academic careers at the same time through our two year BTEC National Extended Diploma in Sport. It’s an exciting time for the Golf College, and it’s great to be growing at what is otherwise a difficult time in the wider economic environment.”

The Golf College will be breaking up for the Summer on Friday, 2 July and we would like to invite prospective students to visit before then to meet the staff and current pupils, and find out how they can enrol into the 2010/11 programme.
