The Burley Golf Club


The Burley Golf Club is one of the most social clubs in Hampshire and a great place to make friends.

Burley GC Academy was started in 2017 by former professional golfer Gerry Teschner and member Joy Ménage to encourage more ladies to the game. Gerry did the coaching and Joy helped with the organising and took players onto the course when they were ready. This was so successful that in subsequent years we have expanded the opportunity to men as well as women and have provided more coaching sessions at beginner level. The Academy continues to grow and we look forward to welcoming complete beginners, improvers and returners each season.


After playing on the European Tour for 5 years Gerry has been Head Professional and Manager of several Golf Clubs. A PGA Qualified Professional for many years, she has always run her own businesses specialising in coaching golf, retailing and the custom fitting of golf clubs. More recently she has concentrated fully on her main passion in golf which has always been coaching and inspiring others to take up the great game. Gerry has taught players of all ages and all abilities including those at Professional level.

Gerry has been affiliated to the Burley GC since 2016 and was very keen to start the Academy for those totally new to golf as well as improvers.
