About Nicky

PGA Fellow Professional Nicky Lawrenson first took up the game more than 20 years ago. In 1998 she embarked upon her professional career at the Belfry Golf Resort, host to numerous Ryder Cup matches and attained her PGA Diploma gaining 3rd position within Great Britain and Ireland in the Titleist Trainee of The Year Award.

Following on from The Belfry she furthered her coaching career and gained invauable experience at The Emirates Golf Club, Dubai, working for leading Tour coach Mr Peter Cowen where she went on to become Senior Academy Instructor. Nicky has also had experience coaching in China and Germany and in 2007 was appointed Academy Director of the PGA Academy at Roda Golf and Beach Resort, Murcia, Spain. 

A continuous passion to develop her knowledge within the game is at the forefront and in satisfying this, she regularly attends seminars both in the UK and overseas, the most recent of which includes the World Golf Fitness Summit, Orlando, Florida. Nicky has also spent time studying alongside leading experts in the field of Golf specific physiotherapy and fitness in Melbourne, Australia and is a qualified TPI Level 3 Golf Fitness Professional with a diploma in sports nutrition.

Seeking to gain the best possible results for her students, Nicky throughout her career has also pursued her passion within the field of performance mindset and alongside her experience as a PGA Fellow Professional, is a certified Master NLP & TLT Practitioner. Fuelled by this passion, she has also studied a broad field of concepts within Eastern philosophies and modern psychology, in the pursuit of discovering the unlimited power of the mind and human potential. Having worked with golfers of all abilities, Nicky has gained great experience in working with some of the mindset challenges that, at times, hold golfers back from realising their full potential and ultimately maximising their enjoyment of the game.

Coaching Philsophy

Welcoming golfers of all ages and abilities, Nicky's coaching philosophy bases itself upon a holistic approach with a passion to develop each individuals golfing needs in an enjoyable, relaxed and simplified manner.

Golfers vary considerably, in many ways, including physiology, mindset, age, ability, lifestyle and end goals. Every golfer is unique and each has their own individual wants, needs and aspirations. Nicky strongly believes that by moulding around these differences to best suit the individual, the most successful results can be achieved. One of her key aims as a coach is to self-empower and guide each individual to ultimately become their own coach through gaining a greater and simplified understanding of their game - leading to increased sustainability, consistency, confidence, self-reliance and most importantly, enjoyment.
