Richard Booth - PGA Advanced Professional

I have been the Professional at Hale Golf Club since 2009 and have over 20 years experience as a PGA Professional since winning the PGA Trainee of the Year Award in 1999. Prior to joining Hale I worked at Royal Lytham St Anne's GC and Royal Birkdale GC.

I am keen to keep learning and so regularly attend coaching seminars given by some of golf's biggest names, such as David Leadbetter and Butch Harmon. I am proud to be one of a small group of PGA Professionals to have achieved the status of Advanced Professional.

I really enjoy coaching and feel that my main job is to help pupils gain an awareness of where their swings are right now before guiding them towards making improvements. I like to keep things simple using clear demonstrations and straightforward practice drills. I also use Trackman which is housed in an indoor coaching room located next to the Pro Shop.

I coach men, ladies and juniors ranging from complete novices to expert players and work with members and non-members of the club on all aspects of the game, including on-course tuition.
Lesson gift vouchers are available.
