PLAY2LEARNGOLF  is a simple concept, we believe that golf is a series of challenges and skills largely learned and developed on the golf course. Our approach to coaching underlines the principles of our beliefs. At P2LG we create tasks and games to coach the skills required to play the game of golf. We recognise that the golf swings while similar in nature is not necessarily what the game of golf is all about. We know because research supports us that when technique becomes bigger or more important than the skills or the readiness of our students to learn, we have failed in our job.

Fact Sheet

P2LG want your kids to have FUN learning to play golf!  We want your kids to LEARN, EXPLORE and become CREATIVE golfers and just as importantly human beings.

P2LG believe (and the research supports us) that kids learn best “by doing”, by giving them tasks to push their creative boundaries and best of all, we know that “lasting learning” takes place.

“Tell me and I understand, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand”.

As players develop a greater understanding of the skills required to play the game, technical information can be added when it’s appropriate for the learner

At P2LG we create tasks and games to coach the skills required to play golf.

“Sometimes you go searching for the perfect swing. I won’t go searching for something that doesn’t exist”               Thomas Bjorn, Tour winner

P2LG recognise that golf swings while similar in nature, when technique becomes bigger or more important than the skills or the readiness of the student to learn, we have failed in our job!

P2LG know that if a child comes for coaching and they are overloaded with technical instruction, we are likely to lose them to another more exciting sport.
