After starting my career as a PGA Professional in 2002 where I enjoyed playing and coaching, I moved into golf club management in 2010. I was appointed General Manager at Ferndown Golf Club in March 2023, a year that sees the club hosting the English Amateur Championship and for the next five years being an R&A Regional Open Qualifying venue. The team and I look forward to welcoming you to the club and hope you enjoy your time with us as we strive to be ‘ the best heathland golf experience in the southwest.’
Assistant General Manager
I joined the club in 2002, after spending 14 years across the road at the De Vere Dormy Hotel.
As well as looking after members and the clubs social activities I am the main point of contact for those visiting the club from a 4 ball to a corporate golf day. One of the highlights of the club year is the annual Peter Alliss Charity golf day which I have been running for the past 29 years (at the De Vere previously) raising over £1.2 million pounds in that time. The other busy times are our Festival Open weeks in May and August when we welcome over 1000 visiting golfers. I look forward to helping you with any enquiries.
Club Operations Assistant
I started golfing when I was 12 and my love for the game only grew stronger. Joining my first golf club soon after my 13th birthday I started playing in regular competitions, moving from grassroots to the England U18 development squad. I am a graduate of Bournemouth University, where I studied for a BSc (Hons) Sports Management degree and I have been a Young Ambassador for England Golf and the Golf Foundation for five years, gaining experience in events, disability sports and junior golf. I look forward to bringing this knowledge and experience to Ferndown Golf Club’s operations and welcoming everyone to the club.
