Our Golf Professional

Mark Rayson

Like so many people who play golf, Mark was introduced to golf by his father at 10 years of age. He would play with family and with friends at his nearby local golf club as a child and into adulthood. At school Mark enjoyed competing across many sports before eventually concentrating on golf in his teenage years, when he represented his club, county, region, university and England Schools.

Having worked in business for 10 years while competing as an amateur, he turned professional in 2006. Mark studied the UK PGA foundation degree, graduating in 2009 while competing on the PGA Europro Tour, and regional PGA circuits. He coached and led the Durham Junior Golf County Academy Programme during 2011-2014.

Mark believes his calling was in coaching golf and that his golf knowledge, life experience and objectiveness could provide much-needed clarity and benefit to the next and current generation of golfer at a time when technology, data and jargon has flooded the market. Through studying and competing alongside some great golfers and coaches, Mark takes great reward from seeing his students benefit from greater understanding and clarity, enjoyment and progress through his guidance and wisdom.

At a time when so many instructors have turned 'teachers and educators', Mark's aim is to continue to provide much-needed golf and life coaching to kids, beginners and experienced golfers.

Golfing School Tuition 

Mark believes in keeping the game as simple as possible, stressing good basic fundamentals such as grip/hold, aim/alignment, stance and posture, while not compromising essential dynamics in search of style. Mark's guidance implements the change both quickly and efficiently, to reinforce the learning experience.
