New coach at Stonebridge

June 1, 2022

We are now pleased to confirm that David Atkins will be joining us as our Performance Specialist Coach.

He will be primarily focusing on individual lessons for you all as well as supporting the Junior coaching programme.  

We can’t wait for him to start, he’s going to be a great asset to the team and it now means there will be coaching available 7 days a week!

Here are a few words from him..

Hi all, not long now until I start my role as your new Performance Golf Coach (March 6th), so I thought it best to introduce myself, before I have the pleasure to meet you all in person.
A few of you may know me from my time down the road at the Forest of Arden. I was involved in the running of corporate and society events and organisation of all member events and competitions.
I then began my journey to follow my coaching passion,before pursuing this full-time at Edgbaston Golf Club where I’ve been fortunate enough to observe (even play) and be around the teaching of multiple European and PGA-Tour Players. This experience has developed me greatly as a coach with knowledge I’m able to pass on to clients, whilst still enjoying the process of continuous learning, to help further develop clients as well as my own playability.
It has all also helped my regular work with a county squad for the past two years, something I’m keen to progress further as my coaching career develops.
During my time as a coach, I’ve come to learn that my main passion is to work with people in a more individual environment and teaming up with the guys at Ignite, is simply a perfect facilitation of this. My aim is not just to help you session to session; but to develop you holistically, so that you are able to combine performance with technicality, helping you understand and enjoy your golf in a more simplistic way.
So I can’t wait to meet you all!
