Sandy Smith - Head PGA Professional
I am currently the head professional at Ladybank Golf Club and was formerly the Head Professional at The Gleneagles Hotel. My passion for golf relfects through my teaching with the aim to improve a client's ability allowing them the enjoy the great game of golf instantly.
I have had the opportunity to work along side some of the greatest coaches and players in the world. These include David Leadbetter, Pete Cowen, Denis Pugh, Nick Faldo, Gary Player, Steve Elkington and many more.
Ensuring that I have satisfied all my client’s needs is my upmost priority during a lesson. I deliver tailor-made sessions with the long-term objective in mind; therefore the client aims for the lasting solution over the quick fix. I base most of my coaching around ball flight and how it an be inproved or trajectories changed, resulting in instant progress. A holistic approach is used to achieve this.
Whilt at The Gleneagles Hotel I was able to introduce the concept of golf and the internet by setting up the internet golf academy in conjuction with V1 interactive frontiers. It not only was the first of its kind in Scotland but allowed Gleneagles to capitalise on a truly global market.
I continue my coaching of county, international and several professional players whom are on various different tours.
