The stunning Carrick on Loch Lomond boasts a world class golf course and the PGA coaches at the resort are furthering the premier offering available to members and guests. Head of Resort Instruction, Spencer Edwards, is a former Challenge Tour and European Tour player, who has a proven track record of maximising golfers’ potential.

Having worked with beginners, Ryder Cup stars and European Tour winners alike, Edwards has over 20 years experience as a PGA Professional. Edwards is joined at The Carrick by Gavin Abson, Senior Golf Instructor and former EuroPro Tour professional, who has recently been selected to join the teaching staff for Scotland’s #1 golf magazine, ‘bunkered’, after stints managing the Junior Academy at an Open Championship venue and caddying on the European Tour.

“We are privileged to boast PGA Professionals of Spencer and Gavin’s ilk; both are vastly experienced coaches who have enjoyed considerable success working with all standards of golfer,” commented Ross Whitfield, Director of Golf & Estates, Cameron House Resort. “We pride ourselves on our world-class offering throughout the resort, from the golf course to food and beverage, customer service to practice facilities; the world-class coaching is an important asset in delivering a comprehensive experience that exceeds our guests’ expectations.”

Edwards, previously the Head Coach to Worcestershire County Golf Team and Solihull College’s Sporting Excellence Programme, has featured on Sky Sports and in a number of leading golfing publications. Prior to his coaching career, Edwards enjoyed playing success on the European Challenge Tour with multiple top-3 finishes as well as holding various County, Regional and National PGA titles.

Abson, a former European Tour caddie to the likes of Robert Rock, Jamie Donaldson and Sam Walker, spent 2 years on the EuroPro Tour before realising his passion for coaching. Able to pass on first-hand knowledge gained from working with some of the world’s best players, Abson’s methods will reach a wide audience over the coming months after he was recognised as one of the best coaches in the country and named to the teaching staff at ‘bunkered’ magazine.

With a wide range of packages available at the resort, members and guests are able to work on basic fundamentals, enjoy advanced video lessons, individual or group classes, custom-fitting sessions, short game coaching or One on One playing lessons on the picturesque Carrick course.
