Instructor: Stephen Dundas, PGA Fellow Professional

Golf Director Pestovo Golf and Yacht Club

Pestovo Golf and Yacht club opened in 2006, this Dave and Paul Thomas design championship course is a mixture of parkland and links. The course measures 6483m from the championship tees. There is also a state of the art golf academy with the latest in video and computer technology. This is supported by the PGA trained professionals who are available for lessons with members and guests of members. When the golfers are not enjoying the world class golf course there are beautiful views from the yacht club or the state of the art fitness centre that can be enjoyed.

My philosophy on teaching

The main things I focus on is trying to get students to do the basic things that all professionals do properly:

Hold the club properly

Aim properly Get in the correct posture

Have the correct ball position

Acquire a good pre-shot routine

All the things above are done correctly by professionals and there is no reason why the average golfer can’t do these things correctly. All swing faults stem from doing one or more of the above incorrectly.

Many people want to either learn how to play or wish to improve their game. What is your philosophy and how do you achieve this in your teaching techniques?

Every individual is unique. If a beginner, the fundamentals will be learnt in a fun and supporting environment.
If a junior, fundamental movements and age specific sport skills are developed at the right time to create athletes and then great golfers!

My personal coaching methods are structured to first understand what a person is physically capable of doing by performing a TPI physical screen. Secondly, to data capture as much information through utilizing proven modern technology and test the individual through shot making scenarios, which cover all aspects of their game. Thirdly, to discover and to understand the individual’s goals.

Based upon the information learnt, I support the student in developing their own individual game to perform beyond specific goals and then to set new ones! We also ensure everyone has fun and cultivates a love for the game!
