I started my golf career as Trainee Golf Professional at Bulwell Forest Golf Club in Nottinghamshire, England under the guidance of PGA Professional Chris Hall.

On successfully completing my PGA exams in 1993 I gained a coveted position with The De Vere Belfry golf team as Golf Professional.  I was soon promoted to Head Assistant before taking on the challenging position of Senior Teaching Professional where my primary role was to maintain the high teaching standards whilst being proactive in improving the knowledge and skills of the professional team.

During my tenure at The Belfry I grasped numerous opportunities to enhance my knowledge of the golf business and was actively involved in golf operations including retail, golf services and tournaments.  My main focus remained coaching where I developed, implemented and conducted numerous corporate, junior and specialist groups through the PGA National Teaching Academy.  My proficiency with coaching programmes such as the V1 coaching, Taylormade’s Hi-Tec Motion Analysis Technology & SAM – Science & Motion Putting Technology have added another dimension to my coaching standards.

Dubai was a great opportunity to use my experience and become part of a first class operation at the Middle East’s premier venue.  My primary role was to set up and create the best ‘Academy’ in the region, implementing the best facilities and building the best team was instrumental to making this work.

Jason’s approach and dedication to coaching, and its development, is evident through his attitude to refining and increasing his thirst for knowledge where he has participated in numerous coaching seminars hosted by golf industry greats such as David Leadbetter, Butch Harmon, John Jacobs, Denis Pugh, Harold Swash, Jim McLean, Tim Barter and sports psychologist Dr. John F. Mathers BED (Hons) MED.

All this experience has allowed me to be an active contributor to many media publications and broadcasting in both UK & Middle East for the past 15 years.  I’m is also an accredited PGA referee and PGA Tutor and Examiner.


“Having had the good fortune to travel the world and collate information I have found there is no one way to swing a golf club, basic good fundamentals allow me to develop a golfer, coupled with a good mental approach”

– Jason Froggatt

My primary role as an instructor is not only to understand the golf swing and how it works but understand the pupil and then convey the information in a manner that helps achieve each and everyone’s goals. My role as a coach is very different in trying to maximize the pupil’s performance in many different ways through holistical approach, corrective practice, and solid metal approach.

His straightforward approach is based on the philosophy of simplifying the fundamentals, from experience at all levels, Jason has recognised that players need consistency and that this is best achieved by simplifying aspects of the game that can often become over complicated. If you are an existing player or new to the game and looking to develop all aspects of your game to your maximum potential  then please email …………….
