Coaching

Whether you are looking to get started in the game or get the best out of your ability, I Richard Whitford, have the experience and the resources to meet your requirements. I am a PGA AA+T Coaching Professional with over 10 years experience. I am also a GUI Ulster Elite Coach.

Here at Knock we have a practice facility approximately 300 yards long, 2 chipping areas, 2 practice bunkers and 2 putting greens. I also give a lot of instruction on the course - after all that's where we play the game and I believe it can benefit all golfers.

I take a simplistic approach to golf instruction, helping the pupil to understand the fundamentals, the swing and mapping out the road to improvement.

I teach people of all abilities , ages and gender and take genuine pleasure in helping them get more enjoyment from the game of golf.

One of the most important aspects of the game and the area where your scores will improve dramatically.

  • When to chip, when to pitch, when to putt
