After 3 years working with Colin I went from a 2 handicap to the no1 amateur in the world.
Colin is the Director of Coaching at the Braid Hills Golf Centre in Edinburgh.

It is a well known fact that the fastest way to improve your scores is through concentrated work on the short game. The Braid Hills has a purpose built short game area, allowing Colin to introduce the pupil to the short games subtle techniques by emulating on course situations.
Putting is often described as a game within a game and makes up a large percentage of the shots played in any given round. Colin uses a combination of technical and mental coaching in an effort to help each individual realise their potential in this fascinating and often neglected part of the game.
Colin works with the Scottish Golf Union, coaching its elite golfers through the Academy programme. Since 2003 he has coached many junior international players and his pupils have won both the Scottish Boys Matchplay and Strokeplay titles.
Colin is very committed to Junior coaching and sees it as a chance to put good fundamentals in place early, helping make a real difference to the golfers of tomorrow.
GASP stands for Golf Swing Analysis Program. At The Braid Hills we have two state of the art GASP computer teaching systems. These allow you to see your swing on video making it easier to diagnose and understand even the smallest swing fault. The computer graphics can be used to split the screen comparing before and after positions to monitor improvement. You can also compare yourself to a suitable tour player from our database. Your own personal swing file will be created which is invaluable when monitoring improvement in the months ahead.
A full day or half days golf instruction including on course lessons can be tailored to your particular golfing needs. Contact us through the contacts page and we can organise a days instruction that is perfectly suited to you.
Whatever it is you want to improve in your game, Colin can help.

During the course of my work I get a chance to see lots of golf coaches. Some are good, some are ok and some are frankly poor. It is very rare that I come across someone who is outstanding. Yet I can say without hesitation that in my opinion Colin Brooks is one of the very few outstanding coaches in the UK today. His ability to look at all aspects of the game, his willingness to learn and his own personal playing experience mean that if you are really serious about your game you could do no better than put your future progress in his very safe hands.
