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 Pro-shop Team on 01803 815000 or email us.

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 relevant 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. Brad then turned professional at the age of 18.

Currently Brad is going through his training with the PGA. He also plays an active role in organising and processing golf competitions and handicap adjustments at Dainton Park combined with his own golf coaching, and he is instrumental in running the junior membership section alongside the Junior Academy.

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



Jamie Tompkins
Assistant PGA Golf Professional

Jamie joined Dainton Park during the summer months of 2021 having relocated from Bristol. He joins us with plenty of experience in the hospitality and catering industry and looks to now impart his knowledge of customer service on to the golfing scene.

Jamie has just enrolled in the PGA training programme and will be completing his three year course with us at Dainton. Having played golf from an early age, Jamie has represented Somerset through all age levels and will continue to compete on the PGA Circuit.

  • "Rich is a great coach. Facilities are great, clubhouse and pro-shop are well stocked. Amazing value, and just feels like a proper golf club. Part of the reason why we’ve decided to sponsor the first team for the next two seasons. What a privilege!"
