The 1st Tee Directors Club was set up by soon to be married couple Jo Cameron, former BBC Presenter and Stress Management and Wellbeing Coach and Julian Mellor who's Golf Channel is in the top 25 biggest golf channels on YouTube. They had wanted to do something like this for years but never quite found the right time until in 2015 it all came together.
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.
Between them they have years of knowledge in the golf and business world.
Our mission is to give Directors space to clear their heads. 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 de-clutter.
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 strategically selected golf courses you won't find people pressuring you to hurry up.

Julian is one of only a handful of PGA Professionals who are licensed to coach a golf system called the Easiest Swing in Golf which is taking the golfing world by storm. It's all based on removing tension from your swing to improve your enjoyment of the game.
