MARK TROW, PGA PROFESSIONAL
AND KENT GOLF APPROVED COACH
I first started playing golf at 8 years old with my dad in the back garden, I was then lucky enough to find a very proactive golf club who really promoted junior golf (one of the reasons I’m now so keen to give something back).
My passion for golf continued to grow and I represented my club, county, country and Great Britain throughout my amateur career. At the age of 18 I then took a scholarship in the USA and played collegiate golf while completing a sports psychology degree. This was a huge learning curve for me and allowed me to play with the best players and learn from the best coaches.
When I returned at 22, I started to plan out my coaching career and at the age of 29 opened my first Growing Golf Academy of which there are now 3 academies in Kent. I enjoy coaching a variety of players of all ages and all abilities, I try to ensure each player understands their own technique and enjoys the process of improving!
Seeing so many junior golfers starting to play, enjoying the game and aspiring to be the next star player is what makes my job so rewarding every day!
KINGS HILL GIRLS ONLY ACADEMY
I am delighted to have the opportunity to help Kent’s up and coming girl golfers progress with their technique, skill set and enhance their enjoyment in the game of golf.
As a coach I believe in ensuring sound fundamentals, and providing each player with a basic knowledge of their own swing is the key for them to progress through all levels. My main belief, is that they have fun along the way. This meaning that all sessions are based around activities that promote learning while having fun!
I run sessions on a Thursday evening and Saturday morning, both sessions will include the same content and cover all aspects of the game, from putting to driving. Because of the great facilities at Growing Golf Academy at Kings Hill Golf Club, we are able to run sessions all year round and never cancel.
Having just completed the first series of coaching, the girls have been fantastic to work with, entertaining, fun and keen to learn and improve. It’s been great to see so many girls getting into golf and wanting to progress their game to the next level.
Amongst the coaching, every player will always be encouraged to make friends, interact and enjoy themselves! I am really looking forward to continuing to develop the current players and meeting new ones along the way.
