Golf is for playing, enjoying and socialising! If you are relaxed and confident in your mind your swing will be the same!

Shain Johnson, PGA Professional

Born in Zimbabwe, and coming from a golfing family, Shain learnt to play golf during the school holidays at junior camps. He started playing on a Sunday morning with his father and brother, who all became very competitive as the years went by - with his brother playing off a 0, and dad off a two - there was no time for games!

Shain went on to represent Zimbabwe at a junior and senior level before moving to South Africa where he played for his university and completed a BSc specialising in golf. In 2011, Shain turned professional playing on the Zambezi and Sunshine Tour.

Shain’s enthusiastic approach to the game allows him to help others maximize their potential in golf, giving them the opportunity to grow and enjoy the game in their own capacity. Shain coaches all ages, adapting his skills and knowledge to each individual's needs and abilities, as well as helping them understand more about the game.

‘Bad shots fuel my passion for the game’

Ben Flint, PGA Professional

Ben is a fully qualified PGA Professional and has had a passion and love for the game ever since he started swinging a golf club age 10. Ben turned professional when he was 18 and had some success playing in his first year as a professional, winning the Titliest and Footjoy Assistants Winter Order of Merit. Ben's goal is to make people smile while they are playing golf.

Justin Argyriou, PGA Professional

Born in New Jersey into a sporting background, Justin developed a competitive spirit from a very young age. Although he was encouraged to play all sports, Justin gravitated towards basketball and golf by age seven and never looked back. Travelling to play tournaments, endless nights in the gym and on the range, as well as developing at different elite camps fuelled the passion for both sports. Justin relocated to the UK in March of 2018 and would turn professional off of +1. When it comes to coaching, Justin’s philosophy is very simple: Practice with a purpose.
