John Peters – Head Professional Profile

John took up the post of Head Professional at Southerndown Golf Club in May 2011. John is a Fellow Member of the PGA and the current regional coach to both the Boys & Girls welsh national squads. He is also the head coach to the men’s Glamorgan team and junior U18’s / U16’s squads. Having played at the highest level in the amateur game, John spent a brief time playing on the European challenge tour before completing his PGA training in 1995 as assistant at Southerndown Golf Club. Once qualified John moved onto St Mary’s golf club where he established himself as Director of Golf and developed a strong reputation in coaching. This resulted in an appointment as Regional coach under the then National coach David Llewellyn. Having been head hunted by the new development in Llanelli, Machynys Peninsula Golf & Country Club, for the position of Head Teaching Professional, he further cemented his coaching credentials by being appointed as Director of Coaching to the GUW Centre of Excellence Golf Academy at the Machynys resort. John is coaching and mentoring many of Wales elite amateur players along with many local professionals. The most notable of these would be one of his star pupils, Lydia Hall, who having earned her tour card on the ladies European tour in 2008, is about to start on her fifth consecutive year on the ladies professional circuit.

“ I have always had a strong passion for coaching and mentoring players. Even when I was competing on the various tours I would be passing on any advice when asked in order to help players to progress. This started in earnest when working with club golfers of all levels in an effort to improve their enjoyment and skills playing the game, to which I still thoroughly enjoy doing to this day”.

With of all the experience and knowledge that John has gained from his career to date, this explains why so many are making the Bridgend journey to the championship links on the Ogmore coast line, for all their golfing needs.

Simon Askins

Head Assistant Professional & Shop Manager

Simon started as a junior at St Mary's Golf Club under the tuition of head professional John Peters, where he soon represented his county at both Under 16 & Under 18 levels. He went on to begin his first year of his professional career as an assistant Professional at Royal Porthcawl Golf club. A further position at Machynys Peninsula where John Peters had taken up the director of coaching role, led to a position closer to home at Southerndown Golf Club under Dennis McMonagle in 2010. A year later, Simon became reunited once again with the Professional that kick-started his career, with the introduction of John Peters as Head Professional at Southerndown Golf Club.

"The refurbishment of the shop in April 2011 on the arrival of new Head Professional John Peters transformed the place completely. The shop now boasts a warm and modern feeling, and is packed with some of the best brands in golf. The transformation has also brought a new indoor swing studio with the latest launch monitor technology. This is great for me as I'm passionate about custom fitting and repairs, and this new facility allows me to tailor golf clubs specifically to each individual. I'm really excited about the rate in which this club is moving forward."

Along with being an avid retailer, teacher and player he is particularly enthusiastic about the junior side of golf and the encouragement of new juniors into the game.
