Tommy Fleetwood Academy

Tommy Fleetwood is one of the best golfers in the world!

Having broken into the world’s top 10, he reached back to where it all began for him here at Formby Hall.

The Tommy Fleetwood Academy, the first in the world, is based here at Formby Hall Golf Resort.

In May 2019, whilst hosting The British Masters at nearby Hillside, Tommy announced the opening of his first Academy.

Tommy asked his first coach, Norman Marshall, to head it up. They worked together to write the progressive programme for junior golfers.

In doing this, Tommy has reached right back to his own golfing beginnings and lit up the runways for the golfing dreams of boys and girls, right here in his hometown.

We are very proud to be the home of The Tommy Fleetwood Academy.
