Steve Holden: PGA Professional Coach
AA PGA Professional
PGA Coach Steve Holden has provided lessons for golfers of all ability at our Liverpool Golf Centre since August 2013.
Learning his golf with his father at Townley Park Golf Club in Burnley, Lancashire, it was soon apparent Steve had great ability as a junior player.
As a teenager, Steve reached scratch handicap and captured the prestigious Lancashire Boys Championship and National Public Course Championship.
Excelling further and competing on the regional amateur circuit Steve reached a +1 handicap and won nearly every Northern scratch event worth winning.
His outstanding amateur record meant he represented Lancashire at the England County Finals and won a distinguished total of 15 matches of his 17 County appearances.
Progressing into the Professional ranks, combining his interest in teaching and training for his PGA Qualification, Steve finished consistently near the top of the Northern order of merit. Between 1988 and 1993 he won many of the PGA's leading events including The North Region PGA Assistants Stroke play and Matchplay championships. He also captured the Lancashire and Cheshire Match Play Championship plus The Farnworth Thomasson Northern Professional Championship finishing 4th in the Order of Merit. Playing further afield, Steve continued to produce top ten finishes in the Challenge Tour events before embarking on a spell abroad.
Whilst working in the United Arab Emirates and funding his playing working as a Senior Professional at the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club in Dubai, Steve reignited his passion for coaching. Whilst overseeing the development of the busy golf academy he still managed to win the UAE PGA Championship, various other national events and competed in the European Tour's Dubai Desert Classic on three separate occasions.
The growth of the game in Dubai and Steve's growing reputation as a highly respected coach along with day-to-day corporate events and management and his promotion to Senior Professional meant his practice time necessary for top-class golf was becoming limited.
After five years of supervising several teaching pro's, managing the Academy, Championship Course and floodlit Par 3 Course, the offer of a Head Professional's post back in Lancashire lured Steve back to his roots to continue to build his coaching interest and he returned to the UK.
He then spent several years working at Truefit Golf in Warrington before joining the newly launched and refurbished Liverpool Golf Centre & Driving Range at Netherley in South Liverpool which Steve described as 'too good an opportunity to miss'.
With top-of-the-range equipment including two brand new Teaching Academy Bays fitted with GASP swing analysis technology, Steve considered Liverpool Golf Centre the perfect place to bring his skills as a coach and help improve the game of local players.
His experience as a player has helped build his reputation as a first-class coach passing on his knowledge and expertise in a relaxed style that is easily understood by golfers of all abilities.
Handicap reductions and great results from novices through to elite players plus Steve's ability to get the best out of a player together with over 20,000 lessons delivered means his advice is much sought after. His lesson diary gets full very quickly so book in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
As one of the North's leading PGA teachers with a proven track record and a wealth of experience, Steve is ideally qualified and would relish the opportunity to help you play better.
