    Ian Bolt 

Swindon Premier Golf Academy

I was born in St Andrews, Scotland in 1952. My introduction to golf came at the age of 13 at Anstruther Golf Club. I became their youngest ever Club Champion at the age of 16. I turned professional in 1969 and was assistant to David Haslam at what is now Ogbourne Downs Golf Club.

My first professional post was at North Wilts Golf Club, where I stayed before going back to Ogbourne Downs G.C. for 10 years, followed by 19 years coaching at Cricklade Hotel and Country Club. I have now been at Basset Down Golf Complex for just under 9 years. 

In the years I have spent at Basset Down, it has been great to see our Ladies Membership almost triple, mainly due to the success of the Tuesday morning Ladies Coffee Morning. I continue to enjoy teaching, and I look forward to helping each and everyone of you who may need my assistance.

My different lesson packages, prices, details of my upcoming prize draw and information about vouchers also be found here. As you can see, tuition includes:

* Individual coaching
* Ladies group coaching
