Kevin Evans - Club Professional

28 years of experience in the golf retail industry

Ensuring you have the right choice of equipment for you. Performance matters

All about being the best you can be and enjoying your golfing journey. Feeling good on the course course to play your best.

I have just been appointed as the Head Professional of Leighton Buzzard Golf Club in March 2023 from a 7 year term at Arkley Golf Club and recently coaching at Chesfield Downs Golf & CC.

 The Professional Shop will make a very positive impact with members and visitors to the club and we look forward to extending the best service and competitive prices in the area .

I started my career  in the golf industry in 1995 when I started work as an assistant at the club where I was a junior, East Herts Golf Club. My PGA training commenced in 1996 under Head Professional Stephen Bryan. 

 After 4 years I moved onto Bishops Stortford Golf Club with the same Head Professional Stephen Bryan and developed myself as a coach and Head Assistant. In October 2004 I gained the position of Joint Professional at  Bishops Stortford having a successful retailing business. This enabled me to add to more expertise in coaching, club fitting, golf retailing and event management. Following I had 7 years at Stevenage Golf Centre delving more of a coaching role developing juniors, ladies golf and bringing new dynamics to the club.

I have played over the years but always enjoyed life at a golf club, I’ve won events and having carded a round of 60 was a great feat.

My passion has always been at a members club on the day to day involvement being able to help all golfers to achieve. Playing this game is amazing and its to be enjoy every minute of it.

I will be looking for a long relationship with Leighton Buzzard Golf Club and help see the club grow year on year.

Yours in Golf
