Olivia Cooke
PGA Professional

Olivia has dedicated her life to playing and learning the game of Golf. She began playing at the age of 4, her passion for the game grew while living and playing in Dubai. This is where she decided a career in golf was for her.

After leaving school Olivia played for the county and England and soon after attended the Lee Westwood golf college, where she graduated with the highest grade achievable scoring 100% and grading at a triple Distinction*. After leaving the Westwood school she took part in the Junior European open in 2016 and also won the Women’s club championships in 2017 at Kings Hill Golf Club where she first picked up a golf club.  This has all led up to her participating in PGA events and charity golf days for charities such as the Variety club.  Olivia also promoted her professional career and charity work whilst competing in Miss England 2019, in which she became a finalist.

Having spent the last 3 years building up her coaching portfolio, she gained a reputation for being able to plan and execute highly successful; Junior camps, schools, including juniors with disabilities and individual adult lessons. Her coaching technique has been described as fun, interactive and simplistic. Tailoring each of her lessons to the individuals personality. As well as helping golfers of all skill levels achieve their golfing targets she is also highly driven to grow the game and branch out to people who wouldn’t necessarily give the game a go.

Olivia’s ambitions are to grow the game of golf for both genders, juniors and also those with disabilities as she believes that people of any age and ability can take part.

Olivia believes the golf swing can be too complicated so her approach to coaching is to keep it simplistic while maintaining the correct fundamentals throughout the swing.  She is one for having fun during the lessons but to also make sure her clients are going away with the correct swing thoughts and drills to help them move forward with their game.  By combining easy to follow drills and her excellent communication skills, she is able to make sure each client goes away with a clear picture of what is needed.

Jerri Sewell
PGA Professional

Jerri is an extremely positive coach and you will often see her laughing and joking with her clients. She realises that there is not one specific way to swing a golf club so can easily adapt her teaching methods and drills to suit each individual. She is able to deliver simplistic lessons, with all of the most important information, making it as easy as possible for the golfer to understand. Jerri also has a clear technical understanding of the swing for those who prefer a more in-depth explanation and analysis of their technique.

She has a successful coaching career, teaching numerous county and England players as well as beginners and intermediates, with great success. Her wealth of teaching knowledge is helped by her successful playing career from a young age, winning numerous competitions at both county and national levels, as well as professional wins.

With advanced knowledge in all areas of short game. Jerri is passionate about this aspect of the game and has retained further education and information on how to teach and deliver the highest standard of coaching.

Jerri also has a keen interest in strategy and decision making on the golf course and feels this is the quickest and easiest change to make to your game to quickly reduce your handicap. Ladies’ golf and participation is something that she is well invested into and hopes to grow during her professional career. The most important thing to Jerri is that every person who participates in golf is having fun and enjoying the experience.
