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 invaluable 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. 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.

Every golfer is unique and Nicky strongly believes that by developing a plan of progress built around the unique requirements of each 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 - reducing any potential frustrations and leading to increased consistency, confidence, self-reliance and most importantly, enjoyment.

Keith,   I know that I spoke to both yourself and Steve Elway on the day, but I just wanted to send you another communication about my experience last Friday.   I have played at Gloucester for about 30 years now and the course is in the best condition that I have ever seen it. I know that you have faced various challenges over the last two years or so but you and your team are to be congratulated for the hard work and effort that you have clearly put in. The other Minch Captain's that I played with thought exactly the same. I addition to the course, the food and service in the bar area was excellent and the chap clearing away the dirty dishes from the tables was most efficient! The whole experience was first class.   Thanks again and please pass on my sentiments to your staff.   Best regards,   Trevor Lee 2015 Captain MGC
