Pro Golf Lessons with Anna Becker-Frankel
I am Anna and I am a qualified PGA professional from Sweden. I teach any person, young or old, beginner or professional, who would like to become a better golfer. I try my best to find a swing that works for you taking age, gender and physical limitations into consideration. I believe that anyone who really wants to, can learn and and enjoy the game of golf.
Anna started playing golf in 1983. She represented her country, Sweden, on many occasions worldwide and has won a gold medal at the European Team Championships. In 1996, she played college golf for Texas A&M University and in 2000 graduated with a degree in marketing.
The same year she turned pro, Anna played on the Ladies European Tour for 4 years. Since 2004, she has been teaching at two clubs in Sweden as well as coaching the girls national team (under 17s). In between lessons and coaching jobs, she has played on the Swedish Tour – a feeder tour to the Ladies European Tour.
At Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate Anna is able to assist you, as a beginner or an experienced player, with anything golf related. She is available to work on your woods, irons, bunker play, chipping, pitching or putting.
You can book individual lessons, group lessons or even lessons for your children. She is also available for corporate days, making provision for popular team building acitivies such as golf clinics, playing in a fourball and speaking about Life on Tour.
For younger golfers that have the drive to put in a little extra time to achieve their full potential, Anna has good experience in coaching the player as a whole.
She can set up a personalized program that can include aspects like physiology, nutritional information, sport psychology and tactical decisions – to name a few. Anna is also able to guide you regarding universities in the US if you should be interested in playing college golf.
Looking forward to seeing you at Devonvale!

European Golf Course Certificate
In order to be able to play on the course in Europe, you need a certificate to say that you are qualified. To obtain this certificate, there are certain tests you need to pass; a practical test and a rules & etiquette test. If you are a beginner and wish to get this certificate, I am able to assist you. I will perform the tests according to the Swedish model and give you a signed document where I explain the procedure in which the test has been preformed and the quality and standard of the test.
