Welcome

Thank you for dropping by, we hope you are well. 

We are all about improving the mental health of the countries leaders by getting them out in the fresh air to de-clutter their minds and give them a fresh perspective. We have built our programmes around The Easiest Swing in Golf which is all about removing from tension from your golf swing. We have proved that, as with your golf, if you remove tension from your every day life, your working life becomes more enjoyable and you have more energy. 

85% of our Directors stay with us much longer than their first year because of the benefits of being out of the office for half a day a month.

We also wonder, you have ever been on courses and been sat in a classroom bored out of your brains or do you wish you could legitimately be out of the office more? If the answer to these questions is YES, drop us a line today to find out more. We know it can be a tough place leading a team of people so drop us a line today to get the monthly refresh that you need.

About Us

Who we are

The 1st Tee Directors Club is based at Ardencote, Warwickshire. Soon to be married couple Jo Cameron, former BBC Presenter and Stress Management and Wellbeing Coach and Julian Mellor set it up in 2015 as a way to join their skills together. They had wanted to do something like this for years but never quite found the right time. It was when Julian started coaching something called The Easiest Swing in Golf that it all fell into place. It became really easy to link the need to remove stress from your golf and from business life.  They met nearly 11 years ago when Jo went to learn to play golf. Jo has an MA in Leadership and is a former BBC Broadcaster. People come from all over the world for golf coaching with Julian.

What do we do?

Our mission is to give Directors space to breathe. Each month we choose a different business topic and encourage healthy debate. 

Whilst out in the fresh air, you have time to think and time to declutter.  


Getting outside into the fresh air , makes the learning more profound and memorable. 


We've developed a whole suite of golfing activities that are really enjoyable but useful in the boardroom too.


With our unique and exclusive access to the 83 acres of Warwickshire golf course you won't find people pressuring you to hurry up as we have it to ourselves most of the time. Where else can you get 'millionaires golf'?
