New Coaches Ready for a Summer of love.golf2 min read


Posted on: 26th Jun 2020

The golf industry’s drive to attract more female golfers will accelerate this summer as more coaches sign-up for the love.golf women-only program.

A group of five leading PGA Professionals are the latest to join the love.golf team, delivering group coaching experiences that takes customers straight onto the course from day one and focuses on learning through play.

The new team members are Suzanne Dickens (Thorpe Wood GC), Neil Murray (Cruden Bay GC), Gregor Monks (Dullatur GC), Molly Moore (Reigate Hill GC) and Netherlands-based Emilio Dellanzo (Golf Club Prise d’Eau).

Supported by Syngenta, love.golf is informed by proven academic and market research and designed to bring together like-minded women for shared experiences out on the golf course, hosted by a lively group of coaches spanning six countries.

Suzanne Dickens, a former Ladies European Tour player, said: “Since golf has returned, we are seeing new faces come to the club and old faces return. People want to be outdoors and this has to represent an opportunity for us.

“I have built up an academy of over 40 female golfers, and want to go even further with the introduction of love.golf.

Suzanne added: “As PGA Professionals we have a massive responsibility to introduce more women into the game.”

While some restrictions on group coaching and enclosed spaces still exist, Founder and Head Coach of love.golf, Alastair Spink, believes the program offers an ‘off the shelf’ solution coaches may be looking for: “Our new coaches have clearly understood where the opportunities as golf responds and adapts to the ‘new normal’.

“Global research shows there is a $35 billion global economic opportunity* to be realised in increased female participation. And love.golf is fortunate to offer a ready-made solution and resources to help coaches kick-start group coaching in a safe, purposeful way.”
