Mendip Spring has three resident PGA Professional golfers available for individual and group golf tuition for men and women of all standards of play. Golf lessons can be tailored to a person’s needs, covering any aspect of the game that needs improvement, including driving the ball with power and precision, iron play and the delicate skills of chipping and putting. Video analysis enables our golf professionals to help you correct any problems in your technique.

A regular Saturday morning feature at the Club is junior golf tuition for girls and boys. Mendip Spring is proud of its record of developing young golfers.

In 2011 the Club was awarded the prestigious GolfMark, a national scheme run by the English Golf Union that identifies and recognises junior and beginner-friendly clubs. Our commitment to young people and beginners is absolute and this Award is recognition of this fact. Any parent seeing the GolfMark symbol can be sure that the Club has a structured environment in which their child can develop as a player and person.

Meet the Pros

Scott Thompson – Director of Golf - Advanced PGA Professional - European Tour Coach

As well as being one of the leading Putting Coaches in the UK, Scott has also developed himself an excellent reputation as a Swing coach, which during the 2005 season led Gordon Brand Jnr to employ his skills full time.
But you don’t just have to be a European Tour player to benefit from Scott’s expertise. He prides himself on his ability to help players, of all levels understand the movements of their own individual swings, whether good or bad. This knowledge is how Scott separates himself from his fellow coaches.
Each session is tailored specifically to the individual’s needs and is available on all aspects of the game, from simple swing movements to the more advanced physical & mental techniques used by the world’s leading players.
As well as helping Gordon Brand Jnr on Tour Scott was involved in The PGA’s Bryant Homes Road show. This project helped give people from all walks of life the chance to try their hand at this very addictive game.
In 2004 Scott gained his PGA Europro Tour card, so as well as being an exceptional coach, he can really play the game. So why not book an on course session and benefit from tutoring covering awkward lies, course management, pre shot routine, mental techniques, short game and swing fundamentals.
