He has worked as a golf professional at several clubs in the UK, most recently as Head Professional at Holtye Golf Club in Kent, where he also ran a highly successful retail store. During his 26 years at Holtye, he increased the membership dramatically and mentored numerous assistants to become fully qualified golf professionals.


Since starting as an assistant pro at Ifield Golf & Country Club in 1983, Kevin has developed a strong background in teaching and custom fitting; his knowledge of golf equipment is up there with the best. He is a certified club fitter for Callaway, Ping, Taylormade, Titleist, Mizuno, Yonex and Cobra

He has the tutorial expertise to zero in on your golfing problems and his advice is uncomplicated, and easy to understand and follow.
