’The great thing about James Cunliffe as a coach, is that he understands that people’s golfing journeys are all very different. Finding out the point you have reached on your journey and then working to help you get the best from the resources you have available, is what he does so well. He also has the knack of finding something that will resonate with you to help explain what it is you are trying to achieve. This moves his coaching beyond technique and very much towards feel. He’s a good bloke as well!

He transmits energy and enthusiasm in his coaching and his depth of knowledge relating, in particular to short game techniques, is first class.

Putting was the theme of the session. Jake clearly explained the technique and we set about the different exercises aimed at reinforcing the coaching session. During the team competition Jake gave each person constructive feed back during the morning to help improve technique enabling us to make single putts by the end of the exercises. At the end of the session Jake summarised key points of the coaching and gave us pointers on what to work on.

Having tried all the usual cures and in desperation I decided to book a lesson with Mark, one of the resident professionals who came highly recommended. Prior to the lesson I offered Mark some valium as I knew the size of the challenge that faced him, however his calm approach and genuine interest was reassuring. After an hour of analysis and tuition, complete with a new set up, my confidence had returned giving me the encouragement to get back to being a single figure handicapper.

Jake is very patient in his approach in giving instructions. He identifies difficulties and tries to make suggestions to suit individuals. Our sessions on Fridays have been interesting and he has allotted time to each individual fairly and with great understanding
