BIO | Head teaching pro - Paul Fiddes

Paul started golf at the age of 9 and quickly took to the game by winning Major Junior and National events. At the age of 16 Paul gained his Northumberland County Colours in his first 3 games. He was selected to play for England U 16’S against Scotland winning all his games and also won the Northumberland County Championship. At the age of 17 Paul secured a job at Matfen Hall working for PGA Professional John Harrison. In 2010 Paul became fully qualified and in 13 years working with John, Paul not only learned a lot from John but became great friends.

Since leaving Matfen Hall Paul has travelled to Australia and has had three coaching roles in and around London working at some premier venues with all the top technology on the market. After this tough year for everyone and after being away from the North East of England for 7 years he feels the time was right to return to the North East of England and he is very excited about working at Longhirst Hall Golf Club.

His coaching style adapts to the pupil he is coaching. He understands how hard the game can be, so he tries not to over complicate things making it easy for the client to not only understand but improve quickly on the golf course. You will get total honesty from him about what you need to do to improve and how long it will take. For some it will take 3-5 swings and others it will be a longer-term project, but if people are willing to work hard he believes anyone can improve. Paul will also be offering golf clubs to purchase for club fits only.

Paul is looking to turn our academy into a place people identify with quality coaching and once he is busy enough will look to bring through a new young PGA Professional to learn and improve plus help build up the Junior Academy.

Paul is looking forward to working at Longhirst Golf Club and meeting all the members.
