Sala Group launches Boutique Real Estate Company

The Clubhouse by Sala is thrilled to be OPEN and offers an unmatched blend of dining, entertainment, and competitive socialising as the premier sports and entertainment venue on the Costa del Sol. With stunning views over the new Puerto Banus Paseo, The Clubhouse promises an unforgettable experience where luxury meets excitement.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Steven Palmer, the golf professional at The Clubhouse, to learn more about his background, coaching philosophy, and what makes The Clubhouse a standout destination for golf enthusiasts.

Steven’s Journey to The Clubhouse

Steven shared his journey into professional golf, beginning at the age of 19 in 2002 and spanning a decade-long career across Europe. He explained how his lack of resources led him to self-teach and master multiple disciplines, including coaching, fitness, psychology, and nutrition. His transition to coaching was driven by his success in mentoring fellow professionals and his passion for helping others achieve their potential.

A pivotal moment came in 2012 when Steven brought several players to Marbella for winter training, ultimately deciding to stay. His collaboration with 2005 US Open Champion Michael Campbell and the establishment of a successful online coaching business during the pandemic further cemented his expertise. When Rod Spinks offered him a role in The Clubhouse, Steven eagerly accepted, excited about the innovative concept and the opportunity to work with a great team.

The Premier Golf Experience at The Clubhouse

Steven highlighted the state-of-the-art facilities at The Clubhouse, including three Trackman-powered simulators trusted by top golfers worldwide for precise ball flight measurement. This cutting-edge technology offers an unparalleled, realistic golf experience. Complementing the simulators, The Clubhouse features a team of PGA Professionals providing elite coaching and custom fitting services, catering to every golfer’s needs.

With a variety of programs, including beginners and ladies academy sessions, and the upcoming launch of Clubhouse leagues and tournaments in July, The Clubhouse ensures a comprehensive and high-standard golfing experience.

Steven’s Unique Coaching Philosophy

Steven’s coaching philosophy is rooted in simplicity and effectiveness. By focusing on the specific goals of each player and minimising unnecessary swing thoughts, Steven helps golfers achieve consistency and confidence. His approach is tailored to deliver results in the most straightforward manner, enhancing performance without overwhelming players with excessive information.

Unmatched Facilities and Offerings

Steven described The Clubhouse as more than just a golfing venue. It features 50 screens, beer pumps on tables, a seamless flow from the main bar to the outdoor terrace, and a pizza oven enhancing an exquisite menu. The Pro Shop offers a stylish range of J.Lindeberg clothing and golf accessories. Unique amenities like smart dart boards by Dartsee and an exclusive private lounge and terrace for members set The Clubhouse apart in the region.

Serving Golfers of All Levels

Steven shared his expertise spans working with Tour Pros and elite amateurs to passionate golfers with limited practice time. He addresses common challenges, such as the misconception that improvement requires extensive practice, demonstrating that significant gains can be achieved with efficient, focused practice.

Tailored Programs for All Skill Levels

The “Get Into Golf” Academy at The Clubhouse creates a fun, relaxed environment for beginners, fostering a community of new golfers learning and enjoying the sport together. The coaching process, while similar for all skill levels, emphasises community and enjoyment for newcomers.

Booking and Peak Times

Steven mentioned that peak times at The Clubhouse are after 5pm during weekdays and all weekend. With increasing popularity, advanced booking is recommended for a full round of golf. However, The Clubhouse welcomes everyone, not just members, to enjoy its exceptional facilities.

Success Stories and Future Plans

Although The Clubhouse has recently opened, Steven is excited about the “model to master” project with Rogan, Head of Sports, Entertainment and Events. Follow their Instagram for progress updates on this unique journey.

Integrating Technology in Coaching

Steven explained how Trackman technology provides accurate and intricate data, which he integrates into his coaching to create simple and effective insights for players. This modern approach ensures that every aspect of the player’s game is refined for optimal performance.

What to Expect at The Clubhouse

Members and visitors can expect a unique, elegant venue where they can eat, drink, watch, and play in a relaxed, friendly environment. Steven and the entire team at The Clubhouse invite everyone to witness this extraordinary destination firsthand.
