Scott Dixon Golf Coaching – Testimonials

If you are serious about improving your golf game and want to understand how simple golf can be, then you must spend time with Scott. His appetite for having fun and learning is contagious, so be warned, if you don’t want to have a “blast” then stay away.

Years of being around Golf pros who “tell stories” makes spending time with Scott so enlightening as they just deal with the truth and reality of your shots. You will be amazed how many skills you have if you dare be open minded whilst in their company.

Do yourself a favour and change your golf forever after being challenged by Scott.

It has been my very great pleasure to have been involved with Scott Dixon for a number of years now. He displays a passion and willingness to learn that is infectious, and understand that being a great golf coach goes way beyond understanding the technical elements of a golf swing. This is reflected in the wonderfully natural and innovative way in which he guides pupils to grow and develop as players.

Instinctive Golf Coaching is proud to have Scott as part of its coaching team, and proud to be associated with the Marriott Dalmahoy.”

Enjoy the experience!

Kendal McWade – Founder, Instinctive Golf Coaching

I wanted to take up golf in my retirement, but never had the courage to go out on the course. I attended Golf for Beginners and On The Course Learning and found Scott’s style together with that combination of courses, to be ideally suited to my needs.

Scott’s approach is to coach rather than to teach, encouraging the individual to develop his or her awareness and understanding of why the ball behaves as it does, so that modifications to the conditions at impact can be made to improve the outcome.

His style is encouraging, supportive and fun, and the emphasis is on enjoying the game. I now feel more confident, and thoroughly enjoy a round of golf with friends.

After having played golf infrequently (and pretty badly) for a number of years I signed up for some one-on-one lessons at Dalmahoy with Scott Dixon.

I have had lessons in the past but found the teaching methods employed by Scott very easy to understand and get to grips with. Even after the first lesson there was a considerable and sustained difference to my game. Having now had a number of lessons to say there is a marked difference would be a huge understatement.

Progression is a big motivator and I am now playing and, more importantly, enjoying golf more than ever before.

In June 2007 Scott Dixon kindly agreed to take part in an event my sports students (as part of their HND) had to organise for local school children.

The event objectives were to introduce primary school children to golf in a ‘hands on’ and interesting way with the view to encourage participation.

Scott suggested a short interactive group coaching session following an exhibition of golf trick shots.
Given the age range and numbers involved (90) Scott managed to captivate their attention with a dazzling display and interacted with the pupils in an enthusiastic and friendly manner. He has an empathy with his audience and the personality to make learning fun.

The feedback from the children was all positive and the local press ran editorials citing it as a resounding success. Undoubtedly this was only possible through the impact Scott made during his performance.

I have no doubt what-so-ever in Scott’s ability to create a fun learning environment and would highly recommend his coaching style and techniques.

Words are funny things, how can approaching a doing sport by using different words improve your enjoyment and performance? Scott has the absolute ability to do this; Scott’s two words that have stood the test of time for me are Clarity & Appropriateness. Scott skill lies in his desire and ability to empower every individual to more clearly understand the fundamental elements that make up their swing. He has a real knack for enabling everyone to gain their own clarity in such a fun way that it doesn’t really feel like being taught at all – how cool is that – improving and having fun at the same time. One of the areas of the game that I have struggled to achieve consistency over the years is appropriately applying the club to the task in – especially on and around the greens – Scott’s willingness to take you to the extremes of shot making so that you can more happily explore the middle ground is both exciting and refreshing.

When all is said and done, I enjoy my golf now, more than ever & that is in large measure down to Scott and his ethos and approach to coaching & life. The pure & simple joy of deciding what shot to hit, determining how you are going to apply the club and then doing it takes some beating; although it does help if the sun is out too!

Last Wednesday I hit a par on two holes on the Dalmahoy West course. Until the start of this year I hadn’t contemplated how important that would be to me as I had never played golf.

My golfing journey has begun in earnest.

This year I have been taking lessons golf lessons with Scott Dixon the golf pro at the Dalmahoy, Scott has been extremely patient and hugely constructive with his input, firstly teaching me the game and then teaching me to play it better, and then last Wednesday even better. I’m on the course now and playing competitively after just a few months, I couldn’t have done that without Scott’s tuition, but I think I’ll keep taking some lessons with Scott, competition is competition after all and there’s always more to learn.

Crawford Boyd

I have been taking golf tuition with Scott over the last couple of years and would highly recommend to anyone that is keen to improve their golf game. Scott’s enthusiasm for the game and total belief in what he is teaching is infectious.

My golf has come on exponentially through the tuition which consists of stripping the game back to the basics and exploring different ways of building up the skills required in golf. Thanks for your patience and continued support Scott!
