Hindhead Golf Club
Ian became Hindhead's Professional in 2003.
He spent most of his earlier career at local clubs, Blackmoor and Blacknest, before moving to Leek Golf Club in Staffordshire.
He has over 25 years of experience teaching golfers of all standards from beginners to professionals, to help them achieve higher golf performance and lower scores through simple and clear techniques.
“I still get a buzz today as much as I did back in 1985 helping a golfer improve and achieve what they might not have thought possible".
Ian is one of the elite band of UK 'Srixon Ambassadors' and his Professional Shop carries both Srixon and Cleveland stock. But he is proud of being able to provide a wide choice for the Members and visitors and houses all the other major brands such as Titleist, Ping, Taylor Made, Benross, Glenmuir, Oscar Jacobson, Peter Millar, Foot-Joy and Sketchers.
“The team and I work very hard to make sure the shop is welcoming for everyone whether they are there to browse or buy, or simply to have a chat about the great game of golf. The kettle is always on”.
Enjoying a long and successful playing career, Ian has won over 60 PGA tournaments that include the Stafforshire Open, the Hampshire Open and the prestigious Hampshire Order of Merit. Ian also enters tournaments with members and is seen pictured with Simon Marvell after they won the Virgin National Pro-Am Tournament.
As well as teaching and playing, Ian is involved in the day to day business at Hindhead such as tournament administration, event planning, society and corporate day support, budgeting, marketing and member recruitment.
Ben played golf as a Junior at Hindhead and after PGA qualifying worked at Wisley and West Sussex Golf Clubs before joining Hindhead eight years ago. He is a successful player with 23 tournament victories and teaches amateur and professional golfers with particular focus on short game.
Harry was Junior Captain at Hindhead before joining the team in 2014. He gained a level 3 BTEC and extended diploma in Sports Management (Merit) at Merrist Wood and played for the college team competing for the college national title at Woodall Spa.
