PAULTONS Golf Centre in Hampshire has announced the appointment of two new PGA professionals.

David Green assumes the role of director of golf and Rob Edwards becomes the club’s new senior PGA professional, meaning the club now has over 100 years of PGA experience within the team.

Green is a well-known figure in the PGA south region, having previously been director of golf at Farnham Park, Croham Hurst and, most recently, head professional at Wildernesse Club.

“Firstly, I am delighted that we have been able to appoint two professionals of such a high calibre,” commented the club’s general manager, Joanne Tomey.

“David’s enthusiasm to bring golf to all and to make golf more welcoming and accessible, will undoubtedly benefit everyone that comes to play at Paultons GC.

"This, along with his service driven attitude, as well as support from Rob and our other PGA professionals, will help us make yet more positive improvements to our all-round customer experience.

"David’s background is second to none, having been captain of the PGA in Kent, vice chairman and board member of the PGA in England (south), awarded PGA in England (south) PGA professional of the year and is an accredited fellow PGA professional.”

Green has been a professional since 1995, working alongside and playing with the likes David Whelan and Andrew Nicholson of the Leadbetter Academy and, more recently, Clive Tucker, coach to European Tour players, David Howell and Graeme McDowell.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such an up-and-coming club, which puts the enjoyment of both its members and loyal visitors at the heart of its operation,” said Green.

“I am looking forward to working closely with the team to build on the successes that have already been achieved since the current owners acquired the club in the summer of 2019.”
