PGA Head Professional
David came to Muswell Hill Golf Club in 1987 as assistant to Iain Roberts and became a fully qualified PGA Professional in 1991.
Together they developed a coaching strategy that has been widely recognised as a successful blueprint for golfers of all ages and standards. When Iain Roberts left to become Head Professional at The Royal Hong Kong Golf Club in 1997, David took over as Head Professional. Over the years he has built a reputation throughout the region for delivering results that are both achievable and rewarding.
"I encourage my staff to attend courses and seminars to keep up-to-date with all the latest techniques and developments within the game of golf. We compete whenever possible to make sure our own game is up to scratch! Golf is a game for life that anyone can play and, no matter how good you are, you can always improve."

Don has been a fully qualified PGA professional since 2000, having joined David at Muswell Hill in 1996. Over the next few seasons he competed on both the Elite-Pro and Euro-Pro tours.
During this time Don worked on his own game with the then Head England Coach, David Ridley, who prompted him to keep up with current coaching influences.
Brian Hemmings, ex-England Sports Performance Coach and Karl Morris have had an ongoing impact in this direction.
"All of which allows me to share a complete development programme suited to each person's
