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. Here at Stover we offer a wide range of golf coaching; from beginners to advanced golfers. 

Why Coaching?

People who play golf live longer, a major study has found, as it shows the game helps prevent 40 major chronic diseases. Researchers reviewed 5,000 studies into golf and well-being and found the sport has physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages and can even increase life expectancy by five years. Balance and muscle endurance in older people are improved by playing golf and it is also likely to improve cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic health. Golfing could also help those who suffer from chronic diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, colon/breast cancer and stroke, as well as helping reduce the risk of anxiety, depression and dementia researchers found.
