Experience Scottish hospitality at its best with

Eric Grandison Golf School & Confluence Scotland

We have teamed up to offer you flexible, tailor-made short breaks and holidays, giving you the chance to improve and enjoy both your ENGLISH and your GOLF technique.

We will also introduce you to East Lothian, the Edinburgh golfing coastline - a fascinating and historical corner of Scotland, close to the capital Edinburgh and home to a beautiful coastline and the greatest concentration of championship golf courses in the world.

Although our service is delivered in English, our professionally trained staff are happy to speak German should the occasion arise – we make every effort to make your stay a comfortable and rewarding learning experience.

Enjoy and Expand your English with Confluence Scotland’s ‘Language Plus’!

At Confluence Scotland we like to make language live.  We offer you personalised English courses to fit your needs and interests, for business or leisure.  We also like to share our Scottish culture and heritage with our guests.

We are delighted to offer you, the visiting golf enthusiasts, language tuition to enhance both your enjoyment of the game and your stay in Scotland.  We will create a personalised course for you, addressing your particular needs and interests, whether cultural, natural, recreational, or for travel and work. We will of course look at golfing language, both on and off the course.  Topics covered could include player’s idiom, specialist vocabulary, golfing commentary and analysis – and small talk for the clubhouse.  Our language teaching always incorporates cultural information and this will include golfing etiquette and behaviour. 

By the end of your stay you will be telling the story of your latest hole in one with amazing fluency!  You will also have discovered much about Scotland, the home of golf.

Our team is led by Dr Alison Hiley, whose work as a language teacher and social historian has given her extensive experience in both a university and business environment and also in Scotland’s tourist industry.  All our team members are enthusiastic and experienced communicators, proud to share our country with you. You will be taught at Eskmills, an imaginative new business development in the buildings of a former fishing net factory, on the banks of the River Esk, in the historic town of Musselburgh, famed for fishing and horse racing – and home to one of Scotland’s oldest golf courses. 

 


At the Eric Grandison Golf School I recognise and respect your individuality. My unique system of teaching is successful because I work with you, enhancing your strengths and improving your weaknesses through sound fundamentals. I work with your own natural abilities and where goals and suggested practice routines are geared to your temperament, your ability and desire. Programmes include state of the art swing analysis ("GASP" as seen on Sky Sports), the Sam Puttlab, Ultrasonic Putt measurement device and provide an enjoyable mix of classroom, practice and actual play. These lessons include a take home personal DVD together with a special plan for future improvement.

Eric Grandison, one of Europe's leading teaching professionals began his golfing career in Edinburgh and has spent the last 20 years honing his teaching skills in Denmark, Austria, Germany and Spain gaining an enviable reputation for his teaching ability and technical knowledge of the mechanics of the golf swing. He has a great enthusiasm for the game of golf and how it should be played. He has covered the whole spectrum of golf instruction from academies, clinics, individual and group coaching including extensive use of state of the art video analysis. He was the Head Professional at the Dennis Pugh Golf Academy and latterly Head Teaching Professional at the prestigious San Roque Club in Spain, headquarters for the European Tour qualifying school. Eric Grandison speaks fluent German.

The excellent facilities at Craigielaw include the beautiful and challenging 18 hole championship links course, an exciting 6 hole short game course and a full size "grass" driving range. The impressive new clubhouse and restaurant await you after an enjoyable day's golf
