Thornton Golf Club has a team of 13 accredited volunteer coaches. The coaching team is lead by Club Pro Scott Gillespie and Keith Renton, who is a Level 4 World Golf Teaching Federation golf coach and Golf Mind Factor coach. The other 11 coaches are all PGA level 1 golf coaches.
All of our coaches share great passion and enthusiasm for the sport of golf. The golf coaches help to support our thriving Junior section by delivering coaching sessions as well as organising and supporting events off the course and competitions on the course.
We are delighted to have had Scott Gillespie on board throughout and he is going to be involved during the Spring and Summer 2018 coaching with the Intermediates who progress from "Club Golfers" onto Scott Gillespie and Keith Rentons Development Group into the Elite squad.
