Assistant Professional Oliver Chesterman
Oliver started playing golf at the age of eight and quickly joined Highgate Golf Club. After a successful amateur career winning both the U18 & U21 Middlesex Championships in the same year he got a call up to the Welsh amateur squad. It was here that he gained unrivalled playing experience which helped reduce his handicap even more before attaining a scholarship to go out to The University of Webber in Florida. After his time in the USA he joined James’ team at Crews Hill and when James moved to Sudbury he came with him. He has started his PGA qualification and will be at the heart of Junior coaching at Sudbury.
Assistant Professional Scott Newell
Scott started playing golf in Muscat, Oman where he lived for awhile with his parents. He played at Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club which was Oman’s first designed and built grass course. Since then his passion for the game continues to grow and being involved in the golf industry at all levels is his chosen career. In 2015 he enrolled at The Golf School of Excellence in Johannesburg where he completed his PGA qualification and also competed on the amateur circuit in South Africa. During this time he devoted his spare time to coaching and learning new teaching techniques and drills to develop his golf swing. Like every young golfer who is passionate about the game playing on ‘the tour’ is his dream and in 2017 he was fortunate to play on The MENA Tour which proved to be a great learning experience. He enjoys working out at the gym daily and is also a big Manchester United fan.
