    Excellent experience
    Attended 2day school with my wife in early December after playing for a year and getting a recommendation from a friend. Excellent facilities and analysis of swing from Joe Queen together with advice on how to correct. It has been cold and snowy since so hope the weather will allow me back on the course for some revision soon! We are both keen to return for more tuition next summer.

    Excellent coaching, analysis and facilities
    Attended a 2 day school with Joe Queen. Excellent analysis and time to address swing faults. As a single figure handicapper, who has played the game for 40 years, I took away a great deal. Will be back to follow up in spring with Joe.

    Absolutely fantastic; Newbie to golfer in two days!
    Relatively new to golf with limited knowledge and experience. Two brilliant days with Joe and I couldn’t believe how much we covered and how much progress I made. The Trackman analysis coupled with Joe’s wealth of knowledge applied in a friendly environment was first rate. The two nights at the hotel with a massage after day one capped off an amazing and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!

    Top notch lessons that really make sens
    Excellent analysis and tools/techniques to improve my swing and really helped me understand the sequencing of my swing and what I need to work on. Had 2 rounds since the course and can see improvements. The driver, especially, had become a club I barely hit and back in favour. The only problem is I am so focused on the lesson feedback I am not lining up properly ( down to me not the lessons!). Really helped me feel my swing more.

    Two day advanced golf school
    Although it was the advanced course I attended, it was great to get back to basics and focus on the basic swing mechanics. For too long I have not hit a ball with any power, but hopefully following the videos and tutoring, I can become a much better golfer thanks to James and his team! awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    2 Day Advanced course
    Attended the 2 day advanced course with James and his team. I've gone from a single handicap upwards and was looking for a good analysis of my current swing and improvement coaching to reverse my recent inconsistancies. After an initial consultation in which James explained what would be happening day one was an honest assessment of where I was, what could be improved and onto making it happen. Day two expanded the coaching to continue improvement and bring in other elements of the game like chipping, putting etc.... During the visit the Trackman analysis was excellent, ample use of the driving range and access to the golf courses on site and upon completion James has supplied videos and coaching tips to continue self improvement. Having played golf for 35 years and never had a lesson, I have to say I couldn't have picked a better school and James and Tim were excellent with me and the other 3 guys who attended. Important to them was the fact that their time was ours and once we'd decided how far we wanted to go with change, James set out a plan and we got on with it. A week later, I've put some practice in, I'm seeing and "feeling" improvements, its still a work in progress but well worth the experience. Excellent job James, thank you.

    Thoroughly recommended!
    I had a brilliant time with a mate on a 3 day golf course, and we were fortunate to have the main man, James as our coach. In a group of 4 (with a lovely couple, who were great company) we by turns struggled, laughed, and slowly saw the dawning of understanding about what we should be doing. The hotel and restaurant were excellent, too, as were the two golf courses, although we were there in the middle of a spring maintenance programme which meant they weren’t inthe peak of condition. If you are serious about improving your golf, I can’t recommend James and his school highly enough.

    A Superb Experience!
    I booked the course in early November and was eagerly looking forward to attending, I was not disappointed! Joe was an excellent instructor, with the patience of a saint. The course was well structured and I improved at various times in all aspects of my game. Joe has now given me the tools to put everything together and I believe I'll be a considerably better player in the future because of it. In the past, I've not fully understood why my shots behave the way they do, now I totally get it and can make the suitable provisions to enable me to play the game the way I've always dreamed of playing it. Also, being given both the written and Trackman reports are a great source of reference, should things drift off track. Well done James Andrews Golf School, a total winner (the chocolate biscuits were a nice touch at break-time too)!

    Excellent 3-day golf tuition course
    Excellent 3-day intensive tuition delivered with patience and clarity by Tim Kelleher. Course well structured and Trackman videos very useful. Following the course, videos, checkpoints and drills emailed so that I can practice what I've been taught. I would recommend James Andrews Golf School to anyone who wants to improve their game.

    Two enjoyable days and many golf tips to take away
    My son Adam and I were a little apprehensive as what to expect on the advanced two day training, being 8 and 18 handicappers. But Joe soon made us at ease, a good mix of theory, practical tutoring mixed up with practicing on the range helped hone our technique. There was no quick fix but the written drills Joe provided along with the video report from Trackman provided key information to incorporate into focused practising. After a month since the training we are both seeing improvements in our games. The course hotel was good and can recommend food at hotel and the Cown Pub in the village. A professional, friendly and productive two days, can fully recommend it.

I have just returned from a 2 day golf tuition course with Tim at James Andrews School of Golf. I have taken up golf in the last couple of years and am a 35 handicap. I wanted to improve my swing, focusing on irons, short game- approach shots-chipping, pitching & putting.
Tim was excellent. I feel like I have come away with a deeper understanding of what I should be doing. He was able to initially look at my play and hone in on areas for improvement. He took me back to basics and explained the essence of what constitutes a good golf swing. The trackman video analysis highlighted where I was going wrong and Tim was able to break it down and work on positioning, backswing, hip rotation, ball contact, timing etc etc with useful tips & exercises to achieve results. I gained a greater understanding of things like attack angle, face & path direction, impact & how to improve these. I feel I have really learnt a lot over the past 2 days. I could see the improvement in my iron play, chipping, pitching & putting too. Tim has sent me notes/tips, videos and now I need to go away and try and imbed what I have learnt.
Golf is not easy and it requires commitment, practice, patience and you need to be easy on yourself.
Thank you Tim, you have helped me so much. You were kind, encouraging and a "coaching champion"
All the best

My son organised a golf trip to Isla Canela in Spain with James Andrews Golf school. I had only played golf once before and very much a novice. I had been on the range a few times and had 2 lessons. We were a group of 8 and had 2 Pro's, Tim and Grace. We had a teaching session every morning on the range and then a round of golf with 18 holes. It was such a great experience for me and I saw so much improvement just withing the 4 days of intensive golf. The quality of teaching by both Pro's was outstanding. The could see where any faults were and advised how to rectify them. The Pro's were always approachable. I would strongly recommend the James Andrew Golf school and in particular our 2 Pro's Tim and Grace. It might even become an annual event!

My wife and took part in the golf tuition holiday trip to Praia del Rey. This was our second James Andrews experience, having been to La Manga in 2022. Once again everything about the trip met or exceeded our already high expectations. The practice facilities and the courses we played were all excellent. We played three first-rate courses, although adverse weather curtailed our round on Praia del Rey. The main element of the trip is of course the golf tuition, and that was superb. We had Tim Kelleher as our Coach and Tim is an exceptional golf tutor. He clearly has a great understanding of the game, and has a coaching style that ensures his teaching hits the spot and improves your game. He is also an excellent playing guide out on the course, managing to strike the balance between a teaching and learning experience and an enjoyable round of golf. As per our previous James Andrews trip, the social element was hugely enjoyable. Having the full group eat dinner with the coaches really enhances the overall experience. James and Tim are very sociable guys who create a convivial atmosphere that carries forward into other aspects of the group activities. All in all, we had another great trip and would recommend a James Andrews tuition holiday to anyone look to improve their golf in a holiday setting.

I enlisted on the 2 day intermediate course and was not disappointed. From the initial chat about what I wanted to gain from the coaching till the very last practice putt, Joe, our trainer, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, encouraging and patient.
We covered all aspects, from fundamentals of a solid swing, warm up routines, chipping and pitching, sand shots and putting. The 4 hours of tuition flew by on both mornings but the techniques shown and practiced paid dividends on the afternoon rounds on the course (Constable).
All in all, fantastic value for money. I am looking forward to returning for more lessons next year.

I went to the 3 day golf school with a specific objective in mind and James helped me to do exactly that, although not in the way I expected. I found the teaching wonderfully refreshing and is completely happy with what was achieved. I am enjoying my golf more already. Thank you,James and team.

I have just had 3 amazing days with Tim in the intermediate group at the James Andrews golf school. I was fortunate enough to have one to one tuition for 4 1/2 hours each morning, but the maximum group size is only 4. I then played 2 different beautiful 18 hole courses in the afternoons. The tuition is very comprehensive, They quickly see where we can develop and explain the possible changes very clearly with plenty of time to practice. Each part of my swing was evaluated and discussed. I also had pitching, chipping, putting and bunker practice as well as going on the course for 2 hours. The guys who were in the advanced group also reported greatly valuing the training. Staying in the hotel and socialising with the rest of the attendees also contributed to the overall enjoyment of the 3 days.

I took part in the 2-day Intermediate Golf School with James and I was delighted with the whole thing. The facilities are excellent, James was very thorough and gave bespoke attention to each attendee. He tells you what you need to hear, not maybe what you want to hear, but his explanations are clear and concise. I came away with some solid things to work on, drills to accomplish this and a degree of confidence from progress that I made.
The course is very nice to practice your new skills and the hotel was very comfortable.
Highly recommended and I will be going back myself.

Back in July I did the two day intermediate course with Tim and it was an absolute game changer for my confidence and my swing! Having an actionable plan to takeaway has enabled me to keep up consistency and momentum. The whole weekend was brilliant and I'm already thinking about when to book in for the next one!

Had a really informative 2 days with Joe, was welcomed from the beginning.
All aspects of the game were covered with tangible changes seen throughout.
I have come away with a clear path to follow with structured drills to follow both at home and at the driving range.
A great experience and a must for anyone that wants to improve their game.
