David Haines

PGA Head Professional

David made a welcome return to his ‘Home Club’ when he was appointed Head Professional in 2014. Having learned to play golf on the famous links at Burnham & Berrow, David has won most of the major club competitions and The West of England Open Amateur Championship over his home course. He also represented the Club at County and International level in a distinguished amateur career before turning professional in 1994.

As a professional he still enjoys playing competitive golf and has won over 20 Pro-Ams in The West Region PGA and has won The Gloucester & Somerset PGA order of merit on two occasions.

He enjoys coaching golfers of all ages and abilities from beginners to touring professionals and particularly enjoys teaching the short game as he feels this is the area where he can usually help most golfers knock shots off their average score.

Since 1997 he has been entertaining golfers at corporate golf days, Captains’ Days, Demo Days and other golfing events with his skilful and amusing Golf Trick Shot Show, which incorporates an array of unusual clubs and skillfull shot making, combined with witty banter that leaves guests amazed and amused!!

David has also been a past Captain and Chairman of both The Gloucestershire & Somerset and The West Region PGA and was elected to The PGA Board of Directors in 2013.
