We’ve partnered with one of the UK’s leading golf coaches, Gareth Benson, to ensure every part of your game is in peak condition.

State-of-the-art technology and a top-class coach

Gareth Benson is one of the UK’s finest golf coaches and we are delighted to be able to offer you his bespoke coaching services, including targeted golf schools, lessons and clinics. Gareth is based at the world-renowned Hillside Golf Club, one of the UK and Ireland’s Top 100 courses and one of several incredible venues featuring on our must-play list of clubs at the home of England’s Golf Coast: Southport.

Hillside has one of the best coaching facilities anyway in the country, combining state-of-the-art technology and a top-class coach. Gareth is an elite county coach, coach to international players and ranked Top 50 contributor to leading golf magazine, Todays Golfer. All of which means you will be in very safe hands with an excellent opportunity to refine your game whilst visiting England’s Golf Coast.

Everything you need to take your game to the next level

Gareth delivers tailor-made coaching that is built around you and your needs, from individual lessons to group lessons or golf schools. Whether you would like to sharpen your short game, perfect your putting, acquire the “dark arts” of taming a links course, or learn how to smash the ball as far as Bryson, Gareth can give you all the hints, tips and tricks you need to take your game to the next level. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

The Luxury Links concierge team will discuss your goals with you before handing over to Gareth for a personalised coaching package tailored just for you. Gareth remains close to golf’s roots and is proud to teach all standards of player. With over 25 years of experience coaching all standards, his ethos is to help golfers gain a simple understanding of what they need to do to play better and enjoy the game to the fullest.

Gareth uses cutting-edge technology to provide clear and simple evidence-based coaching.
