Newlook academy at Brocket Hall


The Palmerston Golf Academy at Brocket Hall in Welwyn – home of the former Faldo Golf Institute – has secured the highly-respected teaching professional Barney Puttick as the first in a series of appointments that will attract top coaches from the world of golf to this corner of Hertfordshire.

The Palmerston Golf Academy is arguably one of the finest places to learn the game in the South of England – its unequalled facilities and talented teaching staff having been endorsed by a long line of golf professionals and top amateurs who, over the years, have sought it out to improve their skills.

The new-look academy will engage some of the best names in golf to host residential and non-residential golf schools on the Brocket Hall estate further establishing it as one of the leading teaching centres and golf destinations in the country.

Puttick is guaranteed to play a huge part in the development of the Palmerston Golf Academy. Voted one of the top 25 coaches in the UK, with over 30,000 lessons to his name, his teaching record is outstanding. 

As a Herts County Coach he has taught over 150 county golfers since 1993, some of whom have gone on to play for England. He has also nurtured the talent of a number of golf professionals and developed a reputation as a short game specialist.  A 

From February, Puttick will provide lessons for all levels of golfers as well as staging an inspiring programme of specialist golf clinics to build skills and improve all aspects of the game.

Meanwhile, European and Asian Tour winners, golfing twins Jo and Sam Head, who took the golf scene by storm fifteen years ago when they turned professional, will also be joining the teaching staff at Brocket Hall in February.

Said Puttick: “I couldn´t hope for a better environment in which to teach. The state of the art facilities at the Palmerston Golf Academy include an indoor teaching school, long game zone, short game zone, a chipping and putting zone and a par 3 six-hole course.  I have ambitious plans and will soon be announcing news of my residential golf schools.”
