At Golf World Stansted (formerly Elsenham Golf & Leisure) we aim to make every experience a memorable one. With regards to lessons we have three PGA Professionals dedicated to introduce the game to beginners in a friendly environment.


For those players looking to improve their current game we use up to date video technology so each player gets the best out of each lesson aiming to maximize their performance. Lessons are available 7 days a week at a time that suits you best.

"Whatever level you’re at we can tailor a program to suit your ability and pace - we believe your lessons should be as enjoyable as possible."

- Paul Ring, Head Professional


Academy Professional | PGA Qualified | Trackman Pro | U.K.C.C. Level 2 Coach

Since the first time I picked up a club at the age of 14, I knew that Golf was a sport that I would be involved in for the rest of my life. 

I've been a qualified PGA Professional for many years having started my degree at The Belfry in 2003. I started out at Gosfield Lake and worked very hard introducing beginners - adults and juniors - into the game. I thoroughly enjoy coaching people at every level from Professional down to complete beginner and feel that I bring a fun, enthusiastic and passionate approach to my lessons. I do a lot of work in the local community offering golf to people who normally wouldn't have a chance to experience it and I relish getting people hooked on this great game. I'm also very proud to say that a number of my younger students over the years have made it to a professional level and continue to play/teach around the country.


In 2017, I invested in arguably the best launch monitor in the world - Trackman 4 ( and have been hooked on it ever since. It has enhanced every session over that time whether it be fitting golf clubs, gapping your wedges or delving deep into the inner workings of the golf swing and it will continue to do so for many years to come.


I tailor my lessons to fit the individual and, whether it's a full-on analysis or an old-school chat and a cup of tea, a lesson will unleash the potential in anybody!


Helping golfers reach their goals and aspirations are core values at our academy. By assessing your overall game and finding out what you want to achieve in golf, we can set out a plan of action to do exactly that!


Our straightforward and friendly approach simplifies the fundamentals of the golf swing and focuses on the key areas. Consistency is demanded by all golfers and can be achieved by recognising what key aspects of your game need to improve.

Whether you are a beginner, established or Professional golfer, we will set about improving your game with ease and enjoyment.


We are proud of our achievements here at Golf World and this is reflected in the number of satisfied, and more importantly improved golfers who we help to improve along the way. You can read about some of our success stories here.

My real passion has always been coaching and to be able to help people improve, enjoy and excel, in the game I have played for so many years is what I strive for.
