Junior Coaching Academy

Every Saturday morning our teaching professionals are introducing new children to our amazing sport.

They learn the fundamentals of the game in a positive, safe environment. They are active outdoors, they learn respect for their peers and their environment, and they form long lasting friendships.

Each week the academy is split into 4 x sessions to suit all ages and abilities. Each session is 45-60 minutes long on the driving range and shortgame area. Don't worry,  parents can make full use of the Bar & Restaurant during this time. The cost is £60 per term, which works out at £6 per session. To enquire please contact the Proshop Team on 01803 815000 or email [email protected]

Dainton strives to create a safe environment for children and young adults to enjoy themselves learning this amazing sport. Just recently we have been awarded the SafeGolf accreditation from England Golf. Please see our relevent policies below. 

Creating a Safe Environment

10 reasons to get your kids into golf

Meet The Team

Richard Woods
Head PGA Golf Professional

Richard joined Dainton Park as Assistant Golf Professional in 2011 following 10 years working for American Golf in Plymouth. He brought with him a wealth of retail and club fitting experience.

After qualifying as a PGA Professional, he has developed a relaxed and intuitive teaching style, equally comfortable introducing complete beginners to the game as he is coaching elite county players.

Richard enjoys equal success on the Devon and West of England PGA circuits, including victory in the Kenyon Order of Merit Trophy in 2015/16.


Brad Sercombe
Assistant PGA Golf Professional

Brad joined Dainton Park as a junior member, and soon realised he wanted a career in golf. He worked hard to reduce his handicap, and passed his PGA playing test in 2018.

Brad intends to enrol on the PGA course next year. Meanwhile he plays an active role in organising and processing golf competitions and handicap adjustments at Dainton Park, and he is instrumental in running the junior membership section.

Brad continues to enjoy success playing golf, and he is always happy to help both newbie and avid golfers.
