Our Coaches





Lauren Taylor, Golf Academy in Spain


  I love going over to SPGA to practice. It's great being able to use TrackMan whenever I need to as it's a huge benefit for me with my training plan, as is the expertise of the coaches if I ever need to discuss ideas. 

- Lauren Taylor

(Ladies European Tour)


  The facilities they have at SPGA are fantastic, it's great to be able to hit off really pure turf, use the equipment in the Performance Centre and have a quality place to train all day. 

- Christopher Sahlstrom

(European Tour, Challenge Tour)


I started doing some work with SPGA in February, specifically to improve the way my body works and increase my clubhead speed. Their clear and specific approach allowed me to understand what I needed to do, work hard with focus, and gain 10mph in driver clubhead speed within 2 weeks. 

- Robert Karlsson

(Nordic League, Multiple Gecko Tour Winner)


  I have known Steven for over 10 years and he has always passionately supported my golfing development, from a junior county player to a Ladies European Tour Professional. To this day I love practicing at the academy for the quality of the facilities and the friendly, focused, motivating atmosphere. 

- Gabriella Cowley

(Ladies European Tour)


The environment the coaches at SPGA create is something great. It's a lot of fun to train in, and their commitment and level of support is second to none. I made huge gains in clubhead speed and shortgame confidence, as well as getting highly focused on my goals and the specific technical, physical and nutritional processes to get there. 

- Cameron Raymond

(Challenge Tour, EuroPro Tour)

The Perfect Climate

Anyone who has ever used the Marbella area for warm weather golf training will tell you that the microclimate of the Costa del Sol truly is amazing. This stretch of coast is sheltered by the backdrop of the Sierra Blanca mountains, which diverts weather systems away from the area, leaving SPGA the perfect location for any golf academy in Spain!
