Making learning Golf fun at The Golf School.

Whatever your strengths, whatever your weaknesses we can help you to achieve what you want to in golf. We build golf instruction around every individual, helping you to get the best possible results from your golf swing. We offer golf lessons in Manchester, our students come from all over the north west to improve their game.

What level of golf are you currently performing at?

Simply select your skill level.

Beginner Golf Lessons

As a beginner golfer you need to concentrate on the fundamentals of the game of golf. This is including the set-up, short game, long game, driving, putting and being introduced to the golf course. We do this in a way that is simple, but still ensures you have fun learning at each stage in the learning process.

Intermediate

At the intermediate level, we look to improve and refine your technique, offering greater understanding of your golf swing. You have identified areas in your game that need improving. We can offer you clear explanations on why you aren’t successful and how you can achieve significant improvement and progression in your game.

Advanced

For advanced players, we assess every part of your game that affects your performance and identify where gains can be made to make the key differences in lowering your score. Techniques can include swing and alignment changes, strength and conditioning, psychological techniques, as well as examining your equipment.

Using the latest technology to help fine tune your swing.

Technology isn’t a replacement for teaching. The biggest benefit that golf technology brings is confirmation of what a coach believes and more visual awareness to exactly what’s going on when you swing the club.

Improve Your Performance With Custom Fitted Clubs

Take the next step with some custom fitted clubs. There is so much room for improvement by getting your clubs fitted. The higher the handicap of the golfer, the bigger the room for improvement with custom fit clubs. We work with your clubs, shafts, grips, loft and lie angles to ensure you are using the right equipment perfectly suited for your swing helping you to achieve your perfect swing.

Who’s doing the teaching? Our Head Coach Richard Gilling.

For the last twenty years, Richard has been teaching and helping golfers just like you go from struggling to get around a golf course to getting on the course with confidence & ability. It’s not only Richard’s technical teaching that sets him apart, Richard is an expert in Neuro Linguistic Programming which is all about refocusing your perception & improving your decision making in any situation on the course.

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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 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!

Richard has rekindled my enthusiasm for developing my golf game, and challenged me to rethink my approach to game improvement. Prior to meeting Richard, I had spent countless hours on the practice range and taken numerous lessons from a variety of instructors over the years, but was feeling frustrated at the lack of progress in my game – I struggled to break 100 on a consistent basis. Under Richard’s guidance, I now feel that I have taken significant strides in developing both the technical side of my game and the mental side. His golf school has all the tools and equipment to help with the technical analysis, but more importantly are the insights, guidance and discipline offered directly by Richard so that time and effort are spent in a much more focused way to get the best out of my practice and my playing time. Anyone who has played golf will know that embedding change and eliminating past faults that have been so heavily grooved into one’s swing is not an easy task, but after a few months spent at The Golf School I feel confident for the very first time that I am on the right path to playing golf at the level I have always aspired to.An added bonus is Richard’s accessibility so that he will respond to the occasional email or text sent outside of lessons seeking some game inspiration, and he seems to have a never ending supply of anecdotes to add to the fun factor during lessons.Whatever level you are currently playing at, if you are genuinely serious about improving your game and are willing to put in the effort in a focused way, I’d recommend you get in touch with Richard.

Richard has definitely improved my golf and has made myself aware and focused on the technical side of my golf. My handicap has come down from 23 to 19 and I’m expecting this to drop again when the season starts in April. I can certainly recommend Richard to anyone who wants to improve their golf and lower their handicap.

Richard Gilling is a dedicated golf professional who understands the individual needs of his clients regardless of handicap. He has a relaxed individual style and works on both the technical and psychological aspects of the game. He is at the cutting edge with appropriate use of technology and provides goal based instruction that is clearly messaged. I had lost my way with golf and Richard has helped me rediscover my love for the game and improved my performance. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Golf School for golfers of all abilities.

Have just started my second programme with Richard to help keep improving my game. I enjoy all of the technology Richard has available to really analyse the gold swing in depth. I went out for a round the other day and couldn't believe some of the shots I was hitting! I'm now having to adjust my game out on the course for hitting the ball too good!! I like the fact that in between lessons, I can pop in to use his all of the tech he has onsite to help make sure I'm drilling in what's been taught in the lessons. Hackmotion, Trackman, high speed cameras and loads more all help to focus on all the right areas of my game. Richard is a great guy too. He could only improve by making tea more regularly when I visit!!! 🙂

I went to see Richard with some putting issues/queries and in just 2 short sessions I have learnt a lot and am already starting to see results. Would definitely recommend.

Quite simply if your looking to improve your golf game get in touch with Richard, I played golf for about a year then felt I couldn’t reach the next level. After my first lesson I couldn’t believe I hadn’t got in touch earlier, the facilities are the best out there, playing colonial on the simulator in the live wether conditions was superb. His knowledge and detail for golf really shows and I was able to easily understand his teaching methods. Also over lockdown we did zoom lessons which were a nice touch and kept me ticking. Iv been with Richard for a few months now and the improvements and understanding of my game have gone up tenfold. Highly recommend.

I went to Richard recently because putting was by far the worst part of my game as an 18 handicap golfer. Had two sessions working on my stroke and instantly I was seeing huge improvements. The following weekend I went on to shoot my best round of 11 over par because of the improvements I made with Richard. Would highly recommended
