"Successfully helping golfers of all levels, ages and abilities transform their games."
Richard and the team are excellent! I find the style of coaching at The Golf School works perfect for me - the right amount of challenge to make constructive change. The technology reinforcement to support the lessons and learnings. And of course the relaxed fun environment that the team create in the indoor facility is superb! Well done!

The Science of the swing combined with the Science of the mind. Rich's concept of golf lessons goes beyond a simple 'fix this', to a programme of understanding the technicalities of the swing but also interestingly an analysis of the 'grey' matter between your ears. How / why do we learn / practise; target specifics not hope for the result; personally think about what and why you are playing the game and what you enjoy from it, as well as analysing what may have gone wrong. For me it was an interesting and thought provoking programme. Like having your own Bob Rotella to hand.Great modern facilities and swing analysis; playing lessons were both fun and inspiring (how good is his chipping !); ad hoc PT sessions as well.If you are prepared to have a look at yourself and your swing then couldn't recommend anyone better. Top Man.

Richards guidance has enabled me to learn golf in a way which is enjoyable and more importantly taught me how to hit the ball further with consistency. Focusing on the simple aspects of golf with the equipment to show and explain where I was going wrong and ultimately why. Would highly recommend anyone from a beginner to advanced golfers who are looking to improve their game.

Been learning golf with Richard for over 5 months now; very happy with the progress and lesson format.

Couldnt recommend Richard highly enough. I started my lessons hitting the ball with an ‘aggressive fade’ (slice to you and me.) and an extremely loose swing. Now after 6 lessons im hitting the ball straighter and more importantly further. My swing is a night and day comparison. Ive added 13mph which equates to around 40 yards longer with my irons and full potential is still not reached. Great set up and technology available to see every aspect and detail in your swing and where your faults lie. Keep up the excellent service you supply!

I've known Richard for over 12 months and recently had lessons with him. Not only has he worked on my technique, more importantly he has worked on my mind and made me believe in myself again.Don't expect to turn up on the off chance of getting to see him. This is an appointment only service! Book in or be disappointed!!

Having a serious back injury (which left me bed ridden for 12 months) I feared that my golfing days were over. Following an introduction to Richard from my physiotherapist, with the help of his state of the art technology, he has rebuilt my golf swing & given me the confidence to plan a return to the golf course in the Spring. I can't recommended him highly enough.

Played at the weekend for the first time since I’ve been having lessons with Richard ( around 6 or 7) couldn’t believe the difference. Strike on the ball clean and straight, distance and knowing how to keep the consistency. Would recommend to anyone who plays golf and is looking to improve.

I highly recommend you meet Richard no matter what your golf needs are.I came across The Golf School on Google and based on the reviews arranged to meet Richard. I told him I played occasional golf, had a few lessons previously but now was quite determined to be a technically much better golfer. My biggest fault was hitting fat and thin shots and it was annoying me.I really wanted to make sure I didn't find an average coach who would put a sticking plaster over the most obvious faults.Fortunately Richard was responsive to my objectives and has transformed my swing using tech like launch monitors, kinematic sequencing and simple things like on course lessons.The result is my swing was transformed from something ugly and full of effort into one that is effortless, more powerful and more accurate. The fat and thins rarely happen and the swing looks more like a proper golfer's one.

As a lady beginner this indoor golf school is a great place to learn. Richard is a great coach. I'm thrilled to say I have progressed enough to be out on the course today. Thank you. Lynn🏌️♀️

Worked together with Rich now for a couple of months and have witnessed a complete transformation in my swing, ability and enjoyment of the game. Had a number of lessons down the years to try and improve but this is head and shoulders above anything I've done before. The facilities available are top quality and the equipment used allows you to see your swing broken down in detail. Totally interactive and able to challenge what's being taught which has really helped to understand the technical aspects of the game. Can't recommend Rich highly enough.

As a beginner golfer with no handicap, I’ve been working with Richard Gilling at The Golf School (TGS) for around 6 months.He has friendly, approachable style, clear integrity, genuine warmth and obvious enthusiasm in helping me improve my game. All of these characteristics put me fully at ease when working with him. TGS is a great environment for game improvement with multiple methods & technologies to measure every aspect of the game (trackman, flight tracker, k-vest et al).On a technical basis Richard has a deep understanding of the golf swing and crucially is able to convey that in easy, digestible and practical coaching. He can give the same advice in multiple different ways until it resonates with me personally, like a penny dropping.I’ve seen my game radically and noticeably improve, with shots I couldn’t have even imagined playing at the start now seeming second nature. On a personal basis my goals are now to reach single digit handicap in the next 6 months – which I think based on progress with Richard so far is certainly achievable.

Richard is a great coach and has helped progress my game massively in a short space of time, the facilities in the studio are quality and will help guarantee improvement for every golfer

Richard is a superb golf coach who uses the very best technical equipment available to help you understand the principles of a good golf swing. Under Richard’s tuition, I am now hitting the golf ball with much more confidence and consistency and as a result, I am now thoroughly enjoying every round of golf I play. If you are looking to improve your handicap and better understand how to hit consistently good shots, then I would thoroughly recommend you meet up with Richard for an initial consultation. You will be glad you did.

I've been coached by Richard for a few years and would thoroughly recommend a series of lessons to anyone interested not only in improving their game, but also understanding it (making self-diagnosis of all the things going wrong much easier). The gadgetry is great if you are into tech, but the most important thing is that he thinks carefully about your particular learning style and what is likely to be effective, coaching you in a different way to the next person.

Highly recommend The Golf School to anyone looking to pick golf up or get some extra help with their swing. Richard is an expert in what he does, very effective and methodical approach to get the best out of each session both with your swing and the physiological side of the game.

Richard is a great coach! He has helped me reduce my scores from 110+ to mid 80's within a matter of months. I cannot recommend Richard highly enough. He will help with the technical side of the game but also goes out of his way to explain concepts and help improvement. Top coach!
