For AFGolfStore, being able to train young professionals is an imperative part of the business. We care about coach development are creating a team of coaches that strive to be the best in their field and subsequently offer a fantastic experience to our customers.
Sam is now 18 months into his coaching and has seen this for sometime as his passion within the game of golf, and the career path that he strives for.
It’s been a tough time, with an unprecedented pandemic to contend with, however, the results his customers have gained as a result of Sam’s time with them speaks volumes in how he has overcome the hurdles.
