• Overview

    At the David Short UK Golf Academy you will be shown the technical keys to learning or improving your golf and guided how best to achieve this within your aspirations and ability.  I am really excited about the new Academy programme at Staverton Park. Aaron Shepherd will head up the Academy, bringing you the latest thoughts on modern golf and using the latest technology. I have known Aaron since he was a junior member at Staverton Park and have watched him for many years progress through the ranks of assistant professional, qualify as a full PGA member and dedicate himself to becoming the excellent full time coach he is today. I know he can help you improve your golf.

    Golf at the top level has moved on enormously in my 16 years at Staverton Park and the technology, variety of equipment, video analysis etc now available is mind blowing. Drivers are easier to use, hybrids make long iron play and semi rough easier too. The selection of wedges and quality putters is almost infinite and can be confusing, albeit there is something there for everyone. Video is incredibly revealing and ‘seeing is believing’. But how much has that truly improved the general standard of the club golfer?  To improve and play your best, having the right equipment in your bag is important, being able to use it properly, more so.

    Our Golf Academy UK programme will concentrate mainly on technical aspects of all areas of the game from putting to driving. We will also ensure you have the right impartial advice on the best equipment for you, but more importantly, how best to use it!
