Kevin Caplehorn - Head PGA ProfessionalMy team and I provide all of the professional services day to day within the club, including a well-stocked and maintained Professional shop, first class coaching to all, state of the art fitting service with a GC Quad in our Lloyd Richardson studio, running and operating the practice facilities and running all club competitions and handicaps. In my early career and whilst developing my skills as a PGA professional I spent my formative years coaching throughout the world, on the European, US and World Tours. This exposed me to different practises and cultures for example, pioneering the growth of the game in China and Russia. This demonstrates my desire to constantly improve and stretch myself by taking on new challenges. 26 years as a PGA professional has seen me develop skills as a coach to all players from beginner to elite. Along with being part of the Hampshire County Coaching team for 11 years, I have also been a member of the Swingzone Coaching Team at 5 Open Championships. Running group initiatives with England Golf and the Golf Foundation the growth of the game is of massive importance to me, whether completely new to golf or advanced individual player, I start every day with the understanding that as a Professional I can only ever be graded by the enjoyment, understanding and progression of my pupils. I am a very proud father in golf also, my two sons Tommi and George now aged 21 and 19 respectively, enjoyed playing from an early age, they both played for Hampshire from the age of 11 and played at a national level in tournaments, importantly they both still play and enjoy the game today. Outside of work I am very keen on singing, love to travel and am an avid Tottenham Hotspur fan, which at times can be painful!
Harry Hart - PGA Trainee ProfessionalHarry is in his second year of training with the Professional Golfers Association, passing his first year exams with flying colours, Harry is very professional In everything he does, whether it be coaching or operating the Professional shop, he is a fine young man. Turning professional in 2019 Harry finished 2nd in his first tournament and 3rd in his second, please enjoy reading the quote below which we were delighted to receive, it really does give a perfect definition of Harry. “Dear Sir On Friday I was allotted your young Assistant Professional Harry Hart as my team’s Professional in the Weybrook Park Pro-Am. I am delighted to report that he was an absolute joy to play golf with. He displayed maturity beyond his years and ensured that all my guests had a great day. He was very encouraging and involved himself in the team discussions about line of putt etc. All of this whilst playing excellent golf on his way to coming third with a level par 71 on a course he had never played before. By far and away the most impressive aspect of his behaviour was how well he masked his disappointment at dropping two strokes in the last 3 holes, his demeanour did not alter. I have played with hundreds of golf pros in these events over the last 45 years and I have never been motivated to write a letter in praise of one of them. Harry is a credit to himself and your Club. Regards Paddy Flavin”
