Robert Rock Golf Academy, Staffordshire
At the Academy the Staff and Professionals share the vision of leading European Tour Player and resident PGA Professional Robert Rock.
The Academy was born out of some spare time during the severe snow nearly 3 years ago. So the bad weather that year was very positive for Darnford Moors.
Robert completed his PGA training at the then wonderfully named Swingers Golf Centre and was attached when he first rose to prominence on the European Tour with some outstanding performances.
