Golf coaching is all about you and what you want to get out of your game. We pride ourselves on being good listeners and aim to provide the best possible professional advice, whilst ensuring each lesson is tailored and enjoyable for the golfer.

Why Coaching?

Here at Arbroath Links Golf Pro Shop the philosophy is simple, deliver the same professional service to every individual who walks through our door. My Coaching philosophy is exactly the same, there isn’t one exact method to swing the golf club. You have to take each customer as an individual and work with what is in front of you. Ultimately, we all play golf for enjoyment and as a hobby and we aim for you to get the most out of your game. Whether you are looking for a quick fix or would like a “TaylorMade" coaching package, we are here to help.

Lessons will cover:

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

Connor Galbraith - Assistant PGA Professional

Connor began working for me in early 2018, since then he has gone on to complete his PGA Degree in late 2021. Throughout his time working for me Connor has always retained a key interest in playing competitively and coaching. From a playing point of view Connor had a successful 2021 with top ten finishes in two big events on the calendar, one in particular being the 36 hole Assistants PGA Pro Am at his home course here at Arbroath. Connor is keen to continue to progress his coaching diary and continues to run all the Junior Programmes here at Arbroath. Another area of particular interest and definitely one Connor excels in is his Custom Fitting. Largely thanks to his excellent knowledge of the current equipment and technology which we use here at Arbroath Links Golf Pro Shop. In particular, Connors use of our Golf Performance Studio where we have Trackman 4 available for all of your golfing needs.
