PGA Coaching
Discover a better way to play!

Whether you're a seasoned golfer or a complete beginner, I know I can help you discover and enjoy your golf.

With over 30 years' experience in coaching players at every level, throughout the country, I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about this great game. 

You will find my coaching profoundly simple. I am not going to confuse you or give you too much to think about. I want you to develop your own style, as you discover the keys to a better game.

To help me communicate my ideas, I have a coaching bag full of innovative tools to help you clearly see and feel the points I want you to discover. Some are homemade, others are popular training aids; they all help you in your quest for better golf.

I hope very much that you'll join me on the lesson tee - all I ask is that you come along with an open mind and that you spend time developing your skills after each session.


Since sustaining my TBI (traumatic brain injury) in August 2016 I have been making steady progress. I am learning to live with the effects of my injury and feel confident about the future. So many people have helped me since my accident. I’ll always be grateful for the support and expertise I’ve received.

On March 4th 2018 I ran in the London Big Half Marathon, as part of Headway – the brain injury associations team.  Find out how I got on from our news page!  

Thank you for your support

Happy golfing,


Steve Barker
