Andrew Cooper PGA Professional
Growing up in Aberfeldy, Perthshire, Andrew Cooper enjoyed many sports from a young age. But it was golf that became his great passion. Inspired by watching the leading players of the era, Andrew’s dedication to the game led to considerable early success in county and national events.
His achievements were rewarded with a golf scholarship at Stirling University, recognised as the leading golf scholarship programme in the UK. While at Stirling, Andrew helped the university to win national titles and represented the Scottish Universities’ team. In addition, Andrew achieved an Honours degree in Economics with Politics.
Andrew’s love of the game led to his decision to pursue a career in golf, joining Newmachar Golf Club in 2001 and becoming a fully qualified member of the PGA in 2004. He was appointed Head Professional in 2006. During his career, Andrew has enjoyed helping thousands of golfers to improve. His clients range from beginners to elite players and across all age groups. He has also provided group classes for many corporate clients, including BP, Aker Solutions and Schlumberger.
Helping golfers improve has always been Andrew’s main professional focus, and in 2017 he established his own coaching business, based at Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club, Aberdeenshire. In 2019 he moved back to Perth and is now based at Ladybank in Fife. When not helping fellow golfers improve, Andrew enjoys competing in PGA events. Away from golf, he enjoys music and reading, and spending time with Eileen, his wife, and their two children, Finlay and Lois.
