FGA Team Building wideAs a complete beginner I came with some reservations, but Fame was an excellent coach and made us feel at ease. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thank you Fame.

I would highly recommend Fame golf academy. I started as a golf novice and never thought I would progress so quickly this is due in part to Fame’s patient, informative coaching, sense of humour and constructive criticism when needed. I never thought I would say this but I love playing golf.

I recently joined a small group of ladies for a series of beginners lessons at the Fame Academy at Tapton Golf Club. For most of the other ladies this was their first brave step into the exciting but often frustrating world of golf. Although I had been around a golf course occasionally with friends I clearly played badly, lacked confidence and needed to learn the more very necessary skills for this sport. From the first lesson our tutor the expert golf professional Fame made each member of our little group feel welcome and soon put everyone at ease. Very quickly Fame identified individuals strengths and our particular needs as she introduced us to the core skills and techniques needed to play and enjoy golf. I am gaining so much from these lessons and having fun too. I am so pleased that I took a step back by joining the beginners classes and I intend to continue with more group and individual lessons in the future. I would certainly highly recommend Fame and the Fame Academy to both beginners and more experienced players.

I had an enjoyable afternoon with colleagues having our own private golf lesson. Neither one of us had even held a club before never mind hit a ball, but by the end of the lesson, we were hitting them successfully.  Fame was a patient tutor and made it fun.  Thank you for a great time.  Ideal team building exercise and I am looking forward to the next time.

Learning the basics for the my first golf lesson was great fun.  Great teacher too!

As a complete novice, I was surprised at the skills I was able to learn in just one lesson.  Fame has an excellent teaching style which makes you feel completely at ease.  As a group of four, she was able to meet all of our individual needs and cater for our different skill sets.  The lessons are accessible and you don’t need expensive equipment as the academy can provide everything you need to get you started.  Our group had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

I have found the ladies academy extremely good and helpful with the
development of my game. It’s great to find coaching that focuses on ladies. The groups have been friendly with the turn up and play good value for money. It is good to play with other ladies to see how your game is developing.

I signed up for Fame’s Golf Academy looking for a different interest and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  With the help, support and encouragement from Fame I have gone from being a complete novice to be out playing most weekends with other ladies in the Academy.  I have thoroughly enjoyed these weekends which Fame organises to keep us all going and improving, the camaraderie and encouragement within the Academy is excellent. I can recommend any ladies who have thought about taking up golf to give Fame’s Golf Academy a try, you won’t regret it, very soon you will be hooked just like the rest of us.

The Fame academy just brilliant. Very welcoming and easy going. Thought I was too old to take up the sport ,never ever imagined I would be playing on a golf course in winter. Got the golf bug now. Just have a go!

I have had several golf lessons in the past with different people but none as enjoyable as Fame Academy! I can see a real improvement in my golf since having lessons with Fame, I have had both one to one and group sessions and thoroughly enjoyed them. The sessions are informal, friendly and very relaxed which really helps with the golf. If you want to improve your golf and meet new friends Fames Golf Academy is perfect for you.Fame is very flexible which really helps as my working hours are really erratic and has put me off signing up to lessons with other coaches in the past. The lessons are fantastic value for money too!

I joined the academy only ever having played pitch and putt before.  I was very apprehensive as to what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at how relaxed, informal and friendly the sessions are.  The group lessons are enjoyable but not too intense and I feel that I learn something new each time. Despite being a group session, there is always attention to the individual’s game, Fame really engages with the ladies she teaches and you soon feel comfortable and at ease and able to ask questions as you go along.After each period of lessons you are supplied with lesson recap sheets that can be kept and referred back to when necessary – this is very useful.I am now driving my husband mad wanting to go out and play golf at every available opportunity and planning weekend breaks close to golf courses.  The bug has really bitten and this is due to Fame my very patient coach.

Margaret Binns

This is a great way  for women to get started in golf without having to pay expensive club fees and to have fun at the same time.

Fame is a knowledgeable and (very) patient coach.  She encourages without any pressure, the sessions are relaxed and I always felt I had accomplished something in each lesson.  It has given me the impetus to carry on playing, hopefully with some of the other ladies who attended the sessions.
