“Originally I was employed as the teaching professional at Tracy Park but over the years my role has changed and I now run the entire golf operation at the facility. One day I may be out on the range coaching a beginners clinic in the morning , then in the afternoon dealing with membership/handicap issues and ordering new stock for the shop.
Teaching golf still gives me the greatest pleasure and I get a real buzz seeing golfers improve. That is why I concentrate most of my Continual Professional Development (CPD) doing courses based on gaining knowledge in this area. This in has led to the PGA awarding me with the status of Advanced Professional in 2014 for the work I have achieved over the years in the golf industry, mainly based on my coaching techniques and achievements.
My CPD Training has given me the knowledge in many aspects of the game, from studying many different swing models, body bio-mechanics, sports nutrition, sports psychology and different short game methods, I can offer a complete lesson package to any individual.I believe there is no fixed method when it comes to hitting golf shots, but there is an ideal swing for each individual and my training has made it easy for me to get the best out of my clients.”

Due to the extensive work carried out on the greens over the last 3 years and our aggressive aeration in spring where we used 87 tons of top dressing, the plant has recovered very well and the soil structure in the greens is the best its been in many years. This means we are able to skip the planned aeration work this autumn which will be better for our members and visitors, causing less disruption to all the golfers
