New Business Ideas #6: Become A Golf Coach

Become A Golf Coach

Now, I realise that this is not a business idea for everyone out there.
You do need to be a better than average golfer to develop a reputation as a golf coach, so this is not a business to take lightly.

BUT, if you are a better than average player and are actually interested in this business, it can be incredibly lucrative.

Let the local public courses know about your coaching business.

Cultivate relationships with the staff and encourage them to recommend you as a coach.
Another place to look for customers is the corporate world.

Golfing is a game that business people use to develop relationships outside the office.

You also need to be a good teacher, know how to be motivational and be willing to work with many different types of people.

Don't take on too many clients at first either. The temptation is to do the opposite, but it will back fire.

You need to get your clients to recommend you and your methods..this way it will enhance your reputation in the long run.

An important thing, especially if you're teaching kids or teens, is to make sure that you keep lessons fun and interesting. You don't want people to be bored, or they won't come back.

Make sure that you teach people the rules and etiquette of golf. Those are very important for people to know, especially if they are going to be going on to play in tournaments and such.

Inspire others. As their coach, people are going to look up to you, and you need to be a mentor for them.

Show them what you are teaching by example, don't just talk.Be professional.

There are heaps of great teaching guides out there and this is one of the best as a huge proportion of people who struggle with Golf it comes down to their golf swing.

A Great Golf Swing

Also, reading great Golf training books will enhance your coaching ability and as long as you inwardly digest the info and then use it to teach, your trainees will think you are the real deal.
Which you will be. Eventually.
