The state of the art coaching and custom fitting golf studio at Topsham Golf Academy makes Exeter Golf and Country Club the top venue for golf coaching and custom fitting in the region.

The studio is fitted with Trackman 4, the market leader in launch monitors which allows the golfer to see accurate data from their golf shots which aids the improving process and helps them develop a good understanding of their own techniques. Video analysis is also used within lessons to allowing the golfer to visually see their own techniques and the progress they have made.

Junior golf coaching

We also offer a range of children’s junior golf coaching courses for all ages and levels.

From group lessons on a Saturday morning, to one-on-one or pair sessions, we can create a coaching programme to get the most out of your young aspiring golfers and get them course-ready.
