In the Media
Since being founded in 1999, James Andrews School of Golf has received worldwide recognition and appeared on television as well as in print. From being featured on CNN’s popular ‘Living Golf’ programme in the USA, to FHM reporting on the school’s merits, James Andrews School of Golf continues to be in demand and prove why it’s been voted the UK’s leading residential Golf School (Golf Today).
Featured on CNN
Justin Armsden has been a producer and reporter on “Living Golf” since the show was first launched on CNN in 2000. During that time he has been responsible for leading the network’s coverage of sport in Europe; from producing live shots at the Football World Cup to covering all the major golf tournaments at home and abroad.
The Show regularly targets the world’s top golf resorts including China’s Mission Hills and Dubai’s Desert Dreams, and in 2006 Justin Armsden visited James Andrews School of Golf. He was initially sceptical about the merits of a Golf School, but was soon won over by what the James Andrews Golf School has to offer.

“The tuition is very well organised and, as with all aspects of the residential courses, as comfortable as possible. Anybody who has felt intimidated about contacting their local club’s pro or unwilling to show their lack of skills in front of seasoned golfers will experience no such problems here as all levels of ability are catered for, including beginners.”

“I’d been thinking about taking up golf for some time as its mentally stimulating, social and good exercise. There was a sense of achievement of actually having learnt something new…It’s definitely fuelled my desire to have more lessons.”
“As the barman told us, it really is all about you.”
FHM – Learn to play golf in 48 hours
“Here in Blighty…the James Andrews Residential Golf School in East Sussex near the South Coast say they can knock any old fool into shape during a two-day crash course, where you’re given tuition in small classes by pros, and then left to rest your aching body in the lodge built near the 18th hole of the adjacent Sedlescombe Golf Club. ‘In two days a complete beginner can learn all the basics,’ says James Andrews. ‘That includes a good grip, a solid swing, the art of chipping, pitching and putting, course etiquette, card marking, the rules and how to not look a complete idiot on the golf course.’”
Tom Benedict, Evening Standard
“The James Andrews School of Golf is designed to give the ordinary punter a chance to learn how to play the game (or improve) with an intensive golf school. The weekend is packed full of exercises to work progressively on your technique, with the chance to put everything into practice on the stunning 18-hole course. The food is excellent, nice accommodation, but the quality of the staff is the key. If you have ever thought of taking lessons, this place is untouchable.”
Arthur Perry, Today’s Golfer
“The brief for my visit to the James Andrews School of Golf at Sedlescombe in East Sussex included the question: Can you, as a single figure handicapper, benefit from attending such a school? I had a suspicion that the answer would be ‘yes’. Now within minutes of experiencing the system and the expertise of James Andrews, I knew it was ‘yes’ heavily underlined and in capital letters.”
