Nicky Lawrenson is the best golf teacher I have met, and I have taken lessons from a number of golf professionals. She has a calm and supportive approach to her teaching. As a teacher myself, I know a great teacher when I see one – and Nicky is a great teacher. Each session I have had with her has given me some ‘gold nuggets’ of advice and information that have really improved my game. She focuses on one aspect of your game at a time and never overburdens you with too much information. Since working with Nicky my handicap has reduced significantly and I feel certain that it will continue to come down even more.

I had been going downhill with my golf until I met up with this magic lady – after six lessons I am on my way back from oblivion. Nicky’s technique is sympathetic and does not mean that you have to change everything as some coaches insist. She finds the worthwhile bits left in your arsenal and brings them up to scratch (not that “scratch” – yet) so that confidence returns and I am now able to give my colleagues a decent game and return to the clubhouse with a reasonable number of points. She is a truly natural teacher and explains things very simply so that they make absolute sense. I now enjoy my golf once more. Thank you Nicky.

I moved to Spain from Ireland to pursue a career in golf. At the time I was on the Ireland Boys Team and playing International events. I met Nicky in my second year here and I have worked with her ever since. There has been a dramatic improvement in my game since I began working with Nicky. She is highly qualified in all the ares of teaching and working on every aspect of the game with her has made a huge difference to my game. She has helped me with fitness, diet and the mental side of golf. She has helped me take my game to the next level.

I have been playing golf for 30 years now and play off 6, I have always had the odd lesson to tidy up my swing etc, but since meeting Nicky I must say she far outshines the other Pros that I have encountered. She can explain complex movements so simply that it all just seems to click into place. When you visit Nicky with a problem with your game, she spots the cause more or less immediately and equips you with the skills and confidence to go on to overcome that problem.

The Christmas present that changed my life was 6 lessons with Nicky. Although never ( and I mean ever) having any interest in the game , these lessons have given me a new lease of life. I was very dubious that I would ever be able to hit the ball but Nicky made the lessons fun without any pressure and now I am able to play fairly competently. She was so encouraging and although it's still a surprise to me, I am delighted that I decided to embrace the lessons. Thank you Nicky you have made such a difference and I love the new opportunities playing this sport has given me.

Nicky Lawrenson has a natural talent and flair for teaching. My background is in education and training, on many occasions in my career, I have met a teacher who stands out from the rest – a teacher who has the flair and ability to help others to reach their full potential. In the world of golf, Nicky is one of these exceptionally gifted teachers. She brings out the best in those who have lessons from her, whether they are high or low handicappers. I play off a handicap of 18 and have already improved my consistency and ball striking with help from Nicky.
