Simon Cox Profile
After a successful amateur career which included representing Wales and Britain on numerous occasions and winning the Welsh Amateur Championship I turned professional, playing on the European Tour and competing in tournaments world-wide, including Australia, New Zealand, South America and Africa. Among the highlights I represented Wales in the World Cup of golf in Thailand, I also played alongside eight open champions in major events and won the Welsh Professional Championship on two occasions.
A wrist injury curtailed my tournament-playing career and in 1981 I was appointed head-teaching professional at the Marriott St. Pierre Golf Resort. In 1985 I built the South Wales Golf Centre in Barry which I ran for 24 years until the lease expired. My teaching clients included Rugby's Gareth Edwards and young PGA Pro Rhys Davies. I enjoy all aspects of teaching and have gained a reputation for detailed swing analysis. I have been a member of the European Tour and PGA since 1975.
2-Hour Course Management Golf Lessons.
Make no mistake about it; golf is a game of mistakes.
The secret to achieving better scores lies with making fewer of them; and ensuring the ones you do make do not prove too costly.
My new 2-hour course management lessons will help you learn how to score your best… even when you’re not playing your best!
To avoid making those mistakes that blight your game time and time again, you need to know your game; and every player is different.
Working together over 9 full holes, I will show you how to play to your specific strengths and hide your particular weaknesses; in real, on-course conditions.
Among the areas covered, we will work to…
· Discover what your specific shot shape is.
· Determine which clubs you succeed most with.
· Become familiar with how far you can strike the ball.
· Identify what your skill set is around the green.
· Ascertain how well you putt from six feet to the hole.
· Establish a game plan based upon your strengths and weaknesses in these areas.
Managing the course tactically, we will also learn to recognise when a bogey can be a good score and how to eliminate first-tee jitters, so that these do not affect the rest of your game.
It goes without saying that the object of the game is to shoot the lowest score possible. Everything else is subordinate to that goal. This one-to-one playing lesson will help you learn to cut out those harmful mistakes on the course; making the lower scores you want more attainable than ever.
Remember; it’s always the lowest score that wins!

“Since working with Simon Cox as my coach, I have reduced my handicap from 22 to 11 in just over six months. I have found Simon’s approach to the golf swing simple and direct, with great emphasis on cause and effect. His unique ability to help golfers, no matter their handicap, has worked for me. I would highly recommend the next lesson you book should be with Simon. His 40 years of experience is priceless” – James Wood, Member of Cottrell Park.
