Get the Very Best Tuition from our Teaching Pros

If you are just starting out or simply need to hone your game our professionals are here to help you!

Here at Ashdown West Golf Club, we want all who come to play golf to get the most out of their game. Here you’ll find everything you need – if it’s a practice area for a little putting practise on your own —  or full-blown instruction from a professional who can teach you everything from the basics to honing your existing game.

The practice ground is available for members, visiting golfers and those taking lessons from our pros; the driving range is not open to the general public.

Our practice range is approximately 300 yards, with 10 tee boxes of Astroturf mats. We also have a practice net, a chipping and pitching area and two practice putting-greens.

Our two PGA qualified professionals, head pro Tim Cowley and senior assistant pro Sam Cowley, are on hand to help improve your game or simply get you started with your first lesson.

I was really struggling with my driving and had seen 2 or 3 coaches but couldn’t get it right. Tim gave me a whole different way to look at the issues and has really helped give me the confidence to strike the ball properly.

Everyone has been telling me that my problem is between the ears. I had 3 lessons with Sam and he has given me the mental preparation to stop me overthinking the problem. It is still a work in progress but I feel I am on the right track.

Tim Cowley
Head PGA Professional

Head Professional Tim Cowley is a PGA Professional and TGI Golf partner. Having previously served the club as Assistant Professional since July 2008, Tim and his brother Sam took over the running of the shop in August 2013.

Tim and his team pride themselves on their excellent customer service, providing a warm welcome to the club and a superb selection of products in their shop, making it one of the best Pro Shops in Sussex.

Tim has experience of teaching golfers of all abilities from beginners to tour professionals. His coaching success comes from finding out exactly what the individual is looking to achieve from their game and tailoring a teaching style to best suite their demands.

An active member within the PGA South region, Tim hosts the Sussex PGA Championships played over Royal Ashdown and Ashdown West every August.

Sam Cowley
Head Assistant PGA Professional

Joining Tim in 2013, having spent six years at West Sussex Golf Club, Sam has vast experience of private members’ golf clubs. Highly personable and approachable, Sam is always happy to help you get the best out of your game and his coaching style has become incredibly popular with members and visitors alike.

If he isn’t spending his time on the range, Sam can be found utilising the Ashdown Performance Centre. With the help of the GC2 golf simulator, Sam can offer swing analysis, custom fitting sessions and ball fittings, showing you the data to back up your improved performance.

A decent golfer in his own right, Sam continues to play to a high standard in tournaments throughout the country and is looking to add to his total of tournament victories next season.

Jonny Ingram
Assistant PGA Professional

Jonny joined Ashdown in 2015 following two seasons playing full time on various professional tours. Currently in the second year of his PGA training, Jonny has really come to love Pro Shop life. He thoroughly enjoys the retail aspect of his role and his reputation as a teacher continues to grow. Lessons with Jonny go deeper than the lesson itself as he is keen for you to keep playing statistics in between lessons so that he can analyse not only your swing but also your shot patterns and course management.

2016 was really a stellar year for Jonny, winning the PGA South Region Assistants & Trainees Order of Merit. He won this title in his maiden year as a PGA Professional. He was helped to the title by winning the Assistant & Trainees Matchplay Championship and finished second in the Assistant & Trainees Strokeplay Championships.
