Richard Reed - GGGC Head Professional

Coming through the amateur golf ranks based at Birstall in Leicestershire, Richard played representative golf for the county in both junior and senior teams whilst also competing in both midland and national ameteur events.

With A levels in Physics, Psychology and Sports Science, Richard has an educational background that assists with the more scientific aspects of golf.  After a spell playing golf in America and learning from some award winning coaches at a golf school in Texas, Richard began working in the professional shop at Notts Golf Club (Hollinwell) in 2006.  Richard wants to continue to develop and improve as a golf professional, whilst providing a great service to members and visitors of Glen Gorse Golf Club.

Richard Reed Golf Coaching at Glen Gorse

Having coached a wide variety of golfers from beginners through to professionals in Nottinghamshire I am excited to start coaching in Leicestershire.

Whether its a one off lesson or a detailed plan of improvement thats required, we can cater for all your coaching needs.

Video coaching is available and my website offers a members section which can provide valuable feedback and lesson reviews for you to revisit when needed.

Group coaching is also available for families or businesses and since starting at Glen we have provided group coaching for the Leicestershire Police and various Corporate and Open days.

We have two succesful Junior sessions running on a Saturday from 2 until 3 and 3 until 4. There are spaces available should your son/daughter wish to get involved.
