Improve your game

Whether you are a beginner or a competent golfer

About

Hi my name is Gary Casey full time PGA Golf Professional specialising in the tuition side of the business. I still occasionally enter a few tournaments here and there but my true passion is and always has been  helping other golfers improve their game. Here’s a brief history of my career so far:
My first ever job started in April 1986 as a young enthusiastic 16 year old at my home club Dullatur Golf Club which is in Cumbernauld just north of Glasgow. Under the expert guidance of Professional Duncan Sinclair I learned the day to day tasks of traditional Pro Shop.
After two great years I was looking to broaden my horizons and was very lucky in September 1988 to find myself my first position as a fulltime PGA Golf Coach at Lavender Park Golf Centre in Ascot, Berks. Here I spent the majority of my time giving lessons on the range to golfers of all levels.
The first 6 months were a bit tricky due to the slight language difference, but after three and a half years we got there in the end.
April 1992 saw me venture overseas for the next two years as a Pro at one of the finest golf clubs in Holland the Golf Club Wouwse Plantage under one of the Netherlands most respected PGA Professionals Phil Helsby. Thanks to Phil it was at the Wouwse Plantage in October 1993 I passed my all important final exams to become a fully qualified PGA Golf Professional.
Now as a Qualified PGA Professional I decided to head back to England to Thorpe Wood Golf Course as Head Teaching Professional in April 1992 from Dennis Fitton who was retiring after a very busy twenty years.
As I said at the beginning coaching golf is my true passion and after an amazing thirty one years in the game I feel very lucky to have made a career out of that passion and never take it for granted.

It’s good sportsmanship to not pick up lost golf balls while they are still rolling.
