Fame Tate is our female Professional here at Barlborough Links Golf Club.  Prior to coaching, Fame came from a playing background as an amateur, representing England for ten years and Great Britain and Ireland for five years, before turning professional with a handicap of +5.  Fame went on to play on the Ladies European Tour and Asian Tour for six years.

Her passion as a coach is getting more people involved in the game, with a strong focus on ladies and junior coaching.  This has been enhanced with her role as Ambassador for Derbyshire Golf and working for Derbyshire Golf over the past two years, delivering projects in the local community to increase participation and making golf accessible for all.

Fame is also a journalist for County Golfer Magazine, is TPI and BodiTrak Certified.

Fame’s Coaching Philosophy:  
I believe in a player centred approach to coaching.  Creating a fun learning environment, enhancing player ownership, self-belief and improving self-awareness of movement.  Everyone’s swing, body type and tendencies are different so I don’t believe there is only one way to swing a golf club and therefore, it is not a one size fits all approach.  I feel strongly that the method used should be based on the individual needs of the player to fulfil their requirements and golfing aspirations.”

Fame leads our Tuesday evening ladies coaching, our Thursday morning ladies coaching and our Saturday morning junior coaching.
