Golf Tuition

Patrick Walker is the Head Professional at Ballumbie Castle Golf Club.

He graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2008 with a first class honours degree in Applied Golf Management Studies. This degree is the only one of its kind with high numbers of elite golfers competing for one of the 25 places each year. It combines academic and theoretical aspects of sports management and science related to golf, with vocational aspects of the game.

Since graduating, he has worked at a thriving academy in Surrey which hosted European tour coach, Mark Roe and more recently, spent the last two and a half years coaching at St Andrews Links. Unlike many club professionals, he competes in golf tournaments and is currently playing the Tartan Tour alongside coaching at Ballumbie Castle.

Junior Tuition

Ballumbie believes one of the best ways of growing a good club is to offer golf for the juniors ranging from beginners to the more advanced young golfers.

Over the School holidays there are always Junior competitions to let the kids get out on the course.

Junior Convener Andrew Marshall works with Club Pro Patrick Walker giving the kids group coaching on Saturday in the driving range.
