Alan Williamson – PGA Head Professional

Alan has been a teaching professional for over 30 years, joining the British PGA in 1989 and completing his apprenticeship at the prestigious Royal Porthcawl Golf Club.

Since arriving in Eastbourne a decade ago and setting up the East Sussex Golf Academy at the Lottbridge Golf Club, Alan has introduced over 1,000 beginners to the game, nurturing them from the unsure first footsteps to becoming confident and competent golfers!

“My approach to teaching is to try and make it as simple as possible to understand clearly how to improve! Over the years I have taught all levels of golf, from the complete beginner to European Challenge tour players and without fail everyone learns best with a simple, clear approach.”

During the 1990’s Alan played on the South African Sunshine tour, giving him invaluable tournament experience at the highest level which he passes on to his more accomplished students.

During his playing career, Alan won 7 professional tournaments and still competes to this day.

“I enjoy the on-course playing lessons with the students, I find it gives me an invaluable insight into the player’s game that you often don’t see on the driving range. It’s also good for both parties.”

Alan uses video analysis in golf lessons to help and speed up the learning process – sometimes you’ve got to see it to believe it!

Languages: English, German
