Pro Shop Ethos

The goal of the Pro Shop team is to offer a friendly and welcoming environment for all members and visitors who come to Abergele Golf Club and to be proactive in introducing new golfers of all ages to the sport. The Pro Shop runs regular NEWBIE golf classes and holds induction days to invite people to see the facilities available at Abergele Golf Club, including seeing what the Pro Shop has to offer, and a tour of the state-of-the-art indoor SRG Development Studio. Coaching for junior golfers is something that is very important to both Stuart and Abergele Golf Club as a whole. We want to nurture the future members of our club so that they can enjoy a lifelong hobby over many years. Junior coaching is available from the professional staff every Saturday morning. This is a fun environment where juniors can learn the correct technique to play the game, develop their fundamental movement skills, make new friends and develop good etiquette and life skills that they can take forward into their adult lives.
