Pro Coaching

Improving your game is not just about practice; even the most perfect golf swing needs to be reassessed as your body changes its muscles and posture over time. Our professional golf team at Chipstead are trained to help coach golfers from novices to fellow professionals in a variety of ways to help improve your game.

Our golf lessons include the highest standard of coaching to all ages and abilities in a relaxed and social environment. Learn how to play golf on the driving range with a bunker area, the undulating putting green or head out onto the course with top tips from the team of PGA Professionals, which will help you achieve outstanding results.

Our Director of Golf / Club Manager Gary Torbett and Head Coaching Professional Nic Torbett are on hand 7 days a week to offer professional advice to members and visitors alike.

Individual and group tuition is available to members and visitors daily.

Our highly skilled coaching staff have access to modern-day teaching aids along with the latest video computer technology.

Our Professionals

Gary Torbett

Gary Torbett, our Director of Golf, was coach to Nick Job, one of Europe's leading Senior Tour players for over seven years during which time Nick said the following about their relationship.

"Gary and I have known each other for over forty years. I watched him develop into a recognised player from during the 80s and 90s where he won a number of tournament’s regionally and was highlighted by his qualification for the Open Championship held at Muirfield in 1992.

Now he has developed into a highly respected coach. I approached Gary during the winter of 2005 to help me with my putting: it worked instantly as I won my first tournament of the 2006 season. It was during the 2006 season that Gary pointed out a couple of things that he would like to see me change that would help me stay competitive over the next few years.

We worked really hard over the winter of 2007 and I am pleased to say that those changes have produced another 4 wins since. Gary has not only helped me with my swing, but he has also helped me with my confidence - something that any top player will tell you is invaluable. He understands the game but, more importantly, he understands the player and what it takes to play to the best of your ability".

Gary was also coach to former European Tour Player and England International Josh White.

Josh states "Gary looked after my game since I was a junior member at Chipstead and has guided me to where I am today. He keeps things simple and to the point which allows me to play without a whole load of swing thoughts. More importantly, he knows what to say and when to say it which from a confidence point of view is invaluable. I have had a number of successful seasons under Gary's watchful eye and have gained much from his knowledge and experience".

Nic Torbett

Nic has built a large portfolio of coaching ideas he has picked over the years from his own learning experiences, ranging from working with some of the top county coaches from his 7 years playing for the County as an amateur, to working with some of the best coaches in the country throughout his 7 years as a Professional.

Stemming from the teachings of his father, Nic likes to work on simplifying a student's swing not only to aid improvement but to enable the student to understand the simple mechanics of their own swing so they can work on their own personal development.

Over the past 7 years, Nic has built himself a reputation as one of the most popular junior coaches in Surrey. His full and half day coaching camps that take place during the school holiday periods are great value, very informative but more importantly great fun for kids of all ages and abilities. Junior classes are also available every weekend and are open to members and non-members.

Whether you are an experienced golfer or a complete novice thinking about taking up the game, Nic's bright and friendly approach to group and individual coaching will aid you on the way to reaching your goals and helping you enjoy this fantastic game.
