FRANK HOLLY is a Class A PGA Professional and has been at The Omni Grove Park Inn since May 2016. He provides every level of golfer with an opportunity to improve their game. Frank learned how to play the game on the various style courses in South West Ireland where ball striking and course management are of high importance. He lives for golf coaching and loves working closely with his students to give them expert intuition to improve their game. He has a real passion for the short game and believes the short game facility at The Omni Grove Park Inn is "perfect to work on all types of shots around the green."
