INFORMATION RELATING TO THE CLUB’S PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
Coastal Golf Academy are delighted to have signed a long term agreement with Frinton Golf Club to offer Golf Professional Services. As from the end of December, Peter stood down as Head Professional, which is a position he has held for 30 years. He has now taken on the role of Golf Manager. Coastal Golf Academy now holds the position as the Professionals of the Club, a position that we are very proud of being given the opportunity to fulfil.
The services that we shall offer will include predominantly the running of the Professional Shop and offering our wide range of coaching programmes. Our aim is to offer a very high level service to the current members and guests and bring new business to the Club. This will be done through our work within the community, developing our existing links and running coaching initiatives at the Club such as the very successful ‘Get Into Golf’ programme.
The Academy now has a good depth of staff and we shall be utilizing them at Frinton to make sure that the experience you have, whether it be whilst taking a lesson or visiting the Pro Shop, is a positive one. With the agreement now in place we will be able to invest in our business and will be introducing an exciting new indoor swing studio, which will be completed by the end of February. The studio will allow us to offer a complete custom fit service and a different lesson experience. It will also be available for people to use for practice etc.
Over the next few editions of the Newsletter we will keep you informed of our plans for the coming year, which we hope many of you will get involved with and we look forward to seeing you.
Tom Hide and Scott Rusbridge.
