The Harmon Legacy

Meet the pioneers of golf coaching…

When it comes to the world of golf instruction, one of the names that stand out from the crowd is the legendary Harmon family. Butch Harmon School of Golf Dubai was opened in January 2009 by Claude Harmon III, who followed in his family’s footsteps to become one of the world’s most prominent golf instructors. As leaders and pioneers in golf coaching, Claude and his famous father ‘Butch’ Harmon have collectively worked with a long list of successful players including Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, Adam Scott and Ernie Els.


Butch Harmon himself has been involved in the golfing arena for nearly five decades, ever since his father, Claude Harmon, a 1948 Masters Champion, introduced him to the game. Today he is the world’s leading authority on golf coaching – voted Golf Digest’s top instructor for 12 years consecutive years. BHSG Dubai combines the Harmon family’s traditional teaching values with modern day, high end coaching methods, including physical conditioning and biomechanics.


“John is an excellent coach. He’s both patient and challenging. John has given me all round coaching – on my swing, bunker shots, short game and putting – and all have improved! Over the last 18 months he has really helped me bring on my game.”
