Saffron Walden Golf Club

Meet The Pros

Rob McNicholas

I originally moved to Saffron Walden to start my PGA training under Philip Davis in 2001 having played my golf at Normanby Hall Golf Club in Scunthorpe. I finished in 2004 and once qualified headed out to Aucjkland, New Zealand to work at Takapuna Golf Club on the North Shore. Here I was fortunate enough to work at a large multi-national golf club and learn from national coaches from both New Zealand and Korea. These years were an eye opener into coaching techniques and development methods which heavily influenced my path to the teaching side of the profession. 

After two years there I came back and worked in the Midlands at Beedles Lake Golf course where I continued to develop my coaching and competed in as many tournaments as my diary would allow. In 2010 I took the opportunity to come back to Saffron Walden in a lead teaching role and three years later I became Head Professional after Philips departure. I have looked to build a team of coaches to work with the club and grow the game in the local community. We are here to coach anyone from any background, age and ability. Our explanations and demonstrations are straight forward, and we aim to make learning the game fun and enjoyable.
