Sarah Claridge Golf Professional

I am the lead coach at Skibbereen Golf Club and Rosscarbery Driving Range in beautiful West Cork in Ireland. I’ve been a passionate golf coach for over 25 years achieving an accredited ‘PGA Specialist Coach’ status, awarded by the PGA for prior learning and achievements in Coaching. Golf coaching has always been a passion of mine and I teach everyone from beginner to elite from junior to senior, one-to-one or group. I’m a certified Mind Factor Coach, one of only 5 coaches in Ireland which enables me to work closely with individuals or groups on skills to enhance the enjoyment of golf by overcoming mental blocks they may have in their game. These techniques were used very recently with the Skibbereen Women’s team who won the West Cork Shield in 2019 for the first time in 29 years. I also specialise in designing and organising bespoke golf holidays and golf schools for groups and individuals.

Coaching Philosophy

My coaching style reflects my love of learning and teaching. I focus on creating a relaxed and fun environment in which my players can learn and flourish themselves. I’m a great believer that your golf will only improve if you ask yourself the right questions. So, I work with each player as a unique individual, as we are ‘all uniquely different’ with entirely different needs. At the end of a lesson I always check with my players that they fully understand what they need to work on. As a Mind Factor Coach I always look to help players develop a growth mindset and more confidence for the course.

To enhance my players technique and understanding of the lesson I use CoachNow for video analysis and feedback, each player will receive access to this software so that they can review their lesson in their own time. For the more experienced I use Flightscope Mevo a launch monitor that gives statistics based on carry distance, ball speed and clubhead speed etc. I also use Smartpro resource sheets for drills and exercises that can enhance lessons.
