Whilst on holiday with friends in Cyprus this year I was persuaded to go to the driving range as the hotel complex apparently had an excellent golf course. After one hour of not hitting a ball I decided it may be fun to have a few lessons when I got home and to see if I could actually hit the ball!
I spoke to Katie after she was recommended by Mendip Springs. We arranged my first lesson and I committed to six one hour private lessons with her. I was extremely nervous before my first lesson but Katie was brilliant. We went to the driving range and remarkably, after a few wise words from Katie I actually hit the ball. After one hour I was hitting a ball and some of them were even straight! Lessons 2 and 3 were learning the basics and in lesson 4 we did three holes from the 9 hole course. I could not believe that I was actually on a golf course and understanding what I should be doing. Lesson 5 we did four holes and in my final lesson we did all nine holes!! It was amazing, I had actually completed a nine hole round of golf with a pro golfer!!
Katie is a great teacher. Her approach has made it easy for me to understand the basics and make decisions on each stage on the course as I went round. She has a supportive and friendly approach that makes you at ease. Katie has the ability to break down the intricacies of the game into simple actions that I could understand. I am of course still a beginner but I had my first round of golf with my husband a few weeks ago and it was amazing to be able to go round with the confidence that Katie has given me.
I would recommend Katie to anyone. She was amazing! Her enthusiasm and love for the game are infectious.

It is now a pleasure to play rather than the frustrating rounds I've suffered for years. Katie is a brilliant teacher/coach”
