Meet The Team
Head PGA Professional
Nick has been the Head Professional at Chippenham Golf Club since November 2016. After a successful Amateur career, representing Devon at all levels and competing nationally, he started his career as a touring Professional, competing on the PGA Europro Tour, European Challenge Tour and PGA West region winning many tournaments and setting numerous course records along the way. However in 2010 Nick began to focus on coaching and a career as a Golf Club Professional.
Nick’s coaching ethos is to keep it simple and to tailor his coaching to the individual as opposed to sticking to a set method. Although he enjoys all coaching Nick is a short game specialist.
Over the years Nick has benefited from the advice of many top coaches. However he considers the time he has spent with Pete Cowen to be the most valuable. Pete is one of the top coaches in the world and coaches the likes of major champions Henrik Stenson and Darren Clarke as well as Lee Westwood.
Nick's Proshop is full of the best golfing goods from the leading brands. If there’s something you’re looking for he’s sure to either have it or able to get it very quickly. The pro shop offers a price promise guarantee as well as a full club fitting service in the custom fit and coaching studio.
