Women's Golf Lessons in Dorset

Over many years in the golf industry, I have gained experience developing women’s golf academies in the Middle East and the UK. Wherever I have been involved with delivering women’s golf lessons, the underlying theme that emerges is they normally like to learn together in smaller groups and love the social side that encompasses this. I have spent many lessons in fits of giggles and it is important to me that I try to ensure people feel relaxed and have fun whenever they are learning the game of golf.

So if you are a total beginner to the game of golf and it all seems a little daunting, let me reassure you that it is my job to pull apart any preconceived ideas you may have about the game and walk you through the basics of the golf swing. I’ll also cover the terminology, the etiquette and, more importantly, I’ll make the lessons relaxed and enjoyable.

To do this I can coach you individually so that I can tailor lessons just for you or, you can join our beginner group classes under the Love.golf group experience. This format allows you to try golf in a relaxed, friendly venue with no worry about the dress code. It’s much much more than hitting golf balls on a range. This is Fun!

Whatever route you choose to learn to play golf, I’m here for you. Just head over to my contact page, fill in your details and I’ll be in touch to discuss your exact requirements.

Love.golf - Beginner Golf Lessons for Women in Dorset

I am delighted to be part of the international Love.golf community and am the only coach in the Dorset area to offer this program. Love.golf is a new and exciting approach to providing women’s golf lessons due to breaking down some of the barriers as to how the game is taught and how it can be played.

The Love.golf method to teaching has been specifically designed after intensive research and is all about learning on the golf course. Fundamental skills and techniques are still introduced throughout the sessions; however, they are always in context to a specific situation. Eg. how to play a particular shot they are faced with there and then during their lesson on the course. The idea is to spend less time on the driving range and more time learning in the real golf environment: “the course”.

All of the group classes I deliver are focused on creating a relaxed, fun environment where people feel comfortable to ask questions and laughter is always prescribed.

A Love.golf course comprises either weekly 90-minute sessions or experience days/evenings lasting 2-3 hours. The max number of people per group session is 10. There is no need to worry about dress codes, please wear what you feel comfortable in and what equipment to bring, as I will provide clubs and golf balls during any of the coaching sessions.

As a Love.golf coach, my job is to guide you from being an absolute beginner, possibly never having picked up a golf club before, too, ultimately, a golfer who is hooked on the game and joins a golf club to play regularly.

It gives me huge pride, pleasure and job satisfaction, when ladies I’ve taught in the early stages of them learning the game, say that they are ready to take the next step and join a club, maybe joining with other like-minded women they’ve met on the Love.golf journey.

If you still have any questions about any aspect of the Love.golf fun sessions at Broadstone Golf Club or would like to know when the next course is starting please drop me an email or get added to my mailing list by signing up for my women’s newsletter via the button below.

"I can't recommend joining one of Kelly's sessions enough - if you've ever just wondered what it would be like, or wondered, can I? She makes the lessons fun, you don't feel embarrassed and everyone is so kind and lovely. Thanks, Kelly."

Individual Lessons

If you would prefer to learn on a 1-2-1 basis, then I offer individual lessons customised to your specific requirements. Whether you are looking for a course of lessons covering the basic fundamentals, learning how to play a specific shot you haven’t quite mastered or an on-course session looking at club selection and course management, then I would love to help you.

Further details of course packages and costs can be found in the lesson prices section of the homepage .

For those wanting to understand more about the golf swing, club delivery, ball flight, club-head speed and other characteristics, we have access to Trackman, which is the industry-leading swing analysis tool, to help us explain the numbers to you.
