Martin Whitcher is a highly motivated and personable golf professional with vast experience and a successful 43 year track record in all levels of the game of golf, ranging from coaching to golf club repair and manufacture to running a successful on course retail outlet.
Nhlanhla started playing golf at the age of 16 after an injury to his ankle put an end to his rugby career. Being an avid sportsman, his school principal suggested that he take up golf and introduced him to Mr. Mkwanazi at Soweto Country Club. Mr. Mkwanazi was involved with golf development and he became a mentor to Nhlanhla.
Martin’s greatest love lies in golf coaching. He has accompanied the likes of Mark McNulty to the British Open in 1993 as his coach and currently coaches and tours the world with Thomas Aiken, who he has coached since Thomas was 6 years old.With a talent for mastering technology, Martin designed the first golf studio in the world – an integrated computer and video swing analysing centre which was officially opened by Gary Player in 1990. Martin had the privilege of taking the late, great gentleman of golf, Seve Balasteros , through his paces in the golf studio.
Martin proudly accepted the highly acclaimed “P.G.A Teacher of the Year” award in 2000, living up to the motto of “Making Golf A Better Game.” Martin continues to develop new and highly successful methods of golf coaching and was awarded Honorary Life Membership of the P.G.A of South Africa in 2014 for his continued dedication to the game of golf.

Nhlanhla started playing golf at the age of 16 after an injury to his ankle put an end to his rugby career. Being an avid sportsman, his school principal suggested that he take up golf and introduced him to Mr. Mkwanazi at Soweto Country Club. Mr. Mkwanazi was involved with golf development and he became a mentor to Nhlanhla. After playing golf for 3 years Nhlanhla started assisting Mr. Mkwanzi with golf coaching at the local schools.
After matriculating from Vuyani High School in Tshiawelo, Soweto, in 2011 Nhlanhla worked at The Pro Shop Woodmead for a brief period of time before being employed by Martin Whitcher as Driving Range manager at Randpark Driving Range. At the same time Martin worked with Nhlanhla on his game and also trained him as a coach.
In the middle of 2014 Nhlanhla left to go and work in the construction industry in Polokwane and Limpopo. Whist he was away Martin kept in constant touch with Nhlanhla always hoping that they would once again work together in the golfing arena. Nhlanhla’s love of golf has brought him back and he is once again being mentored by Martin and is coaching under the banner of Martin Whitcher Golf Schools.
