Nick Moncur made the decision to move to Marbella two years ago to launch the local Moncur Golf Academy.
"The facilities on the Costa del Sol are far superior to most in Europe; the courses are superb and naturally we have the perfect climate. Basically, my job is a pleasure, not a chore!"
At the tender age of 13 Nick had already decided golf was going to be the sport of his choice. Even with considerable distraction his brother is John Moncur (ex-West Ham footballer) got him hooked and became his focus for the future. Aged 23, Nick turned pro and straight away started teaching at the distinguished Nazeing Golf Club in Essex. He became PGA qualified four years later and has since played on the UK PGA Tour and Europro Tour.
Nick´s main base is local golf course Santa Clara. “The conditions at Santa Clara are the best around and the greens are only bettered by the Ryder Cup course, Valderrama”. He also teaches clients at local course Rio Real and further afield Torrequebrada, and La Quinta courses.
Nick runs both private tuition and group courses. A typical day starts with morning sessions on the range, usually followed by 18 holes in the afternoon. “I work with clients of all levels; from beginners, to scratch and tour players” Nick explained, “I have also taught Simon Khan who recently won the Welsh Open. It was a very proud moment for me watching him win.”
Nick believes that to succeed first and foremost you have to take an active interest in understanding a client´s sports or medical history. “Everybody is individual and our bodies work in different ways. Typical back, shoulder or knee injuries affect the way in which we react to unusual pressure. When you decide to take golf lessons, the first thing to establish is how your body will react. Then I will adapt the training to suit you."
Whether you are a total beginner looking for a crash course or a more experienced player, Nick Moncur is the professional to contact.
