Sandburn Professional Steve Robinson named Coach of the Year

Our Head Professional is England Golf's Coach of the Year

Steve Robinson has enjoyed a spectacular 2016, inspiring the England women’s team to become European champions for the first time in 23 years. Victory was particularly sweet because his teams had been involved in bronze medal play-offs in the previous three years, but have left the championships empty handed on each occasion.

Robinson also coaches the Yorkshire boys’ and women’s teams – and between them they’ve won 11 English county championships. This year, three boys from the six-strong county squad have represented England and Robinson is also the personal coach to Charlie Thornton who won the England Golf Boys’ Order of Merit.  He summed up how he creates a winning culture by saying: “It’s all about building relationships with the players and making sure you know their vision and their mission.
