I am a qualified PGA (AA/T) Professional and level 3 coach with over 35 years coaching experience. I have taught all abilities from beginner to professional and am fully versed in biomechanics, sports psychology and swing mechanics. For a number of years I have been using new video technologies to enhance my coaching.
I started my career as a trainee assistant at Worthing Golf Club. On qualifying as a PGA professional I moved to Ham Manor Golf Club as senior assistant before becoming head professional, a role which I retained for thirty three years and was honoured to be captain of the Sussex Professional Golfers Association in 1996.
During my career I have played in many tournaments and have won a number of Pro-Ams. I was twice a member of the victorious TGI golf team in the Ashworth Cup at Celtic Manor and The K Club. I also hold two course records, one in the UK and one in the USA. To this day I am still as keen as ever to maintain a high standard of golf as I believe it an essential requirement for great coaching as I learn from my experiences.

Simon has been coaching me for over 15 years. His style of coaching is to work on your natural abilities with small alterations rather changing everything. My h/cp came down from 12 to 7 working with Simon and is now at 10.5 not bad for a 74 year old. Thank you Simon keep up the good work. Thoroughly recommended.
I have been coached by simon for several years now his methods are simple to understand and only focuses on single but fundamental flaws that make a hugh difference to my game and enjoyment of it. I would recommend simon to anyone that wants to improve their game
Excellent golf coach. Keeps it simple allowing you to focus on playing golf rather than getting wrapped up in analysis. Good advocate of the mental side of golf too.
I've worked with Simon for a number of years now normally for a few lessons at the beginning of the summer to get my game in shape. I've done a few more lessons over the Winter this time and it's been great. His knowledge and simple delivery makes the changes you need to make easily actionable. Can't recommend him enough for those starting the game or those looking to take their game to the next level.fun excellent enjoyable Proffesional progress
Great coach, really enjoy lessons with Simon, he really has helped my game in a lot of ways, I only wish I had more time to practice some of the teachings as I am sure I would be a lower handicap
Simon is an excellent & likeable coach who doesn’t over complicate instruction. He works with what you have and doesn’t try to completely remanufacture your swing. No one swing suites all. He is easy to talk to and quickly spots faults. He is also interested in your progress and will often ask how your golf is going even when not in a coaching session. I would highly recommend Simon to golfers of all levels.Excellent Professional Easygoing
I have known Simon Buckley for over 30 years. He is an excellent golf coach whom I could not recommend more highly. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, perceptive, friendly and approachable with a great sense of humour.Simon's individualistic and intuitive approach to coaching enables him to significantly improve the game of literally all golfers who are prepared to listen to and act upon his wise counsel. With the benefit of Simon's expertise, I have been able to enjoy my golf to the full, despite the ravages of advancing age and declining physicality.Richard Edmondson.
