Enjoy better golf with our professional golf coaching

When Caddying for Seve, he told me “make the swing your own”.

Learning your natural swing enables us to switch to auto-pilot, allowing you to “play golf” and not “play swing” on the course.

Why Coaching?

At Portlethen, we offer excellent golf lessons that use multi-bay covered driving ranges, indoor studio, and GC Quad technology to provide you with accurate measurements of your swing, including ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate. 

With our lessons, you can practice your swing and receive feedback on your technique in any weather condition. Our experience and advanced technology help you improve your golf game and take your skills to the next level.

Lessons will cover:

  • Golf Fundamentals
  • Swing Basics
  • Short Game
  • Long Game
  • Course Management
