Lessons


Golf coaching is all about you and what you want to get out of your game. We pride ourselves on being good listeners and aim to provide the best possible professional advice, whilst ensuring each lesson is tailored and enjoyable for the golfer.

Why Coaching?

We’re passionate about helping you play better golf.

Every golfer enjoys the game more when they’re hitting good shots and playing well. This is our mission for you.

Think back to your last few rounds and try to pinpoint an area that cost you shots…

Maybe, you had too many three-putts as a result of poor distance control? Or did you miss too many fairways to the right meaning you had to chip out sideways? It could be that you play well in practice rounds with your friends but struggle to replicate that in competitions?

Through our experiences in the game and our PGA education, we appreciate that every golfer is different. That’s why we offer a range of lessons and packages to suit everyone.

Lessons will cover:

  • Golf Fundamentals
  • Swing Basics
  • Short Game
  • Long Game
  • Course Management

Christian Goodman - Head PGA Professional

I have been part of Matlock Golf Club since 1989 when I joined as a junior member working my way to my current position as The Club Professional. Prior to becoming a Professional, I completed a Bsc (Hons) degree in Sport and Recreation Management and then returned to Matlock to undertake my PGA apprenticeship. I qualified as a P.G.A. Class ‘A’ Professional in May 2006 and took over as Head Club Professional in June 2007. I have a wealth of playing experience both as an amateur and as a playing professional in the Midland and Derbyshire PGA Region. My particular strengths are coaching working with a wide range of ages and abilities, from beginners to Derbyshire County players. I use a mix of traditional and up to the minute coaching techniques and can work on all aspects of your game from putting, short game to full swing analysis.
