Club Professional

Learn about our club pro


Here at Arbroath Links Golf Pro Shop the philosophy is simple, deliver the same professional service to every individual who walks though our door. My Coaching philosophy is exactly the same, there isn’t one exact method to swing the golf club. You have to take each customer as an individual and work with what is in front of you. Ultimately we all play golf for enjoyment and as a hobby and we aim for you to get the most out of your game. Whether you are looking for a quick fix or would like a “TaylorMade" coaching package we are here to help.

Custom Fitting

With the addition of our Studio Performance Centre in late 2020 we can now Coach & Custom fit all year long. Our centre is kitted out with TrackMan 4 as used by many European Tour and PGA Tour Players. This gives us precise numbers and information on your golf swing and ball flight numbers which are crucial when coaching and custom fitting. Data analysis is now easier than ever with this technology. We also have cameras setup in the room to capture the key angles of your golf swing. This data and technology also allows us to provide an even greater range of services - Driver & Fairway Wood Fitting Hybrid & Iron Fitting Wedge Fitting Putter Fitting Ball Fitting Gapping Sessions
