INSPIRING COACHING AT CASTLETOWN
Charlie Simpson is the Professional at Castletown.
Hello to all the existing members and potential golfers at Castletown Golf Links - we have seen some great improvements in the scoring and enjoyment of members over the past few months, as more and more golfers now take lessons with Charlie. There have also been a good number of 'new to golf' people coming through the Academy and
Charlie started playing golf at a very early age, with his mother being a huge influence on his development, with her representing England and Great Britain and Ireland on numerous occasions. After a successful junior career winning County Championships, Faldo Series regional events and leading Millfield School to the England Schools Championship, Charlie decided to turn professional at 18. He had spent his winters in Orlando, working with on his game with world renown coaches such as Sean Foley and Gregor Jamieson, and competing on the Europro Tour in the summer months. He also competed on several other mini tours in the UK such as the Jamega and TP Tours.
He decided to move to the Island in September 2016 with his wife, Sara, and our 2 young children, and they joined the club straight away.
Charlie has been lucky to have been taught by some prestigious golf coaches and he looks forward to sharing the knowledge acquired about the game with you, the members and new golfers. We all know how tough golf can be, and with Charlies' knowledge of competitive golf, he can help with basic course management to significantly bring down your handicaps and improve your game. He can provide coaching on all aspects of the game, as well as on-course tuition. The indoor swing room facility and video technology is also an option, especially when weather may not be great, enabling Charlie and yourself to work on reducing your scores.
Charlie also runs the Professional Shop at Castletown, stocking a wide variety of new and exciting brands, including Peter Millar, Daily Sports and Srixon to name a few.
