Merry Christmas 2020!
As your golf coach there are three ways in which I can help make a difference to a players game. These three ways all have many implications if they are not addressed correctly…
How to get better with your game with no swing changes
After teaching and talking to golfers for more than thirty years I have observed a consistent pattern that emerges with some club golfers and it goes like this – The player will begin the round well and after about four or five holes hits a bad shot or two. The immediate reaction is to start analyzing their swing and attempt to correct what they THINK has caused the bad shots.
Chris & I would like to thank you for sharing your experience and expertise. Your lessons are certainly paying off. Not only are our handicaps coming down but most important, our confidence is rising. It feels great to at least be competitive. Remember when I as blaming my new clubs, they are now working a treat! Once again many thanks, by following your advice we look forward to lowering our handicaps even further. We can recommend your lessons to anyone who wants to improve their game.Ken & Chris McGrail
My son Edward has been under the watchful eye of Nancy several times each week for the last 12mths now both in her group short classes and private lessons. Nancy’s dedication and commitment to sharing her knowledge and skills to the younger generations is remarkable. The improvement of my sons skills is very noticeable….. he just loves his golf and loves Nancy. I also have enjoyed both private and group lesson with Nancy, thus enabling myself to enjoy a gold social game of golf with friends. It’s is so pleasing to see a former LPGA professional champion golfer giving so much back to the sport. Thank you Nancy for taking Edward under your guidance. I would not hesitate to recommend Nancy a for either group or private lessons golf for both junior’s or adult’s.Christopher Dan
I’m blown away with my progress over the past 12 months. Did you know that I was on a handicap of 26 when we first started working together? I am now playing off 12 thanks to our weekly lesson schedule.

Whether you’re a professional athlete or a young aspiring athlete, Nancy Harvey is dedicated tremendously to her students. Nancy’s energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Her training technique not only builds a strong/well-conditioned athlete but her approach more importantly builds confidence in athletes to believe in their ability to reach new heights. Nancy has a deep understanding of “the swing” and of people’s strengths and abilities. Her knowledge of “the swing” allows her to break it down into simple key components for a student to easily understand. Nancy Harvey is an incredible coach and mentor. Without a doubt the best I have ever worked with!Tahnee Jade Benson
Just letting you know that I’ve just won the Lord Mayor’s Trophy here in Bundy. It was a two round stableford event. I’ve just turned 70 and am playing the best golf ever thanks to your expert guidance. Will be coming down soon for a refresher! All the best,Kay Tischler
Now back in Sydney. Enjoyed my lesson last Sunday, then played a round. I hit consistently and solidly off the tee, as well as with the 3 hybrid off the fairway, finishing three under my handicap. A good lesson indeed!Paul
Nancy welcomed me into her golf world of knowledge, fun, and enthusiasm. With time she has turned my golf around with a degree of successful achievements and personal challenges. Her passion for this game rewarded her with many International Professional achievements which has now enabled her to teach all levels of golfing enthusiasts, from beginners to the experience golfers, her professional ability and sensitivity adapts to the individual. Ten years down the track, with a desire at 70 to crack the single figure handicap, I cannot think of anyone else who could possibly get me over the line. Nancy is an amazing lady, a true competitor
with outstanding humour which makes golfing for us all, such a fun sport.
Thanks Nancy for your continued interest and support.Jenny Cowell
