Darran Clark

PGA Golf Professional

I started playing at Mountain Ash Golf club in 1984 and as a junior played for Glamorgan boys and represented Wales in the European Schools Championship in 1993. I began my PGA training in 1994 in Moor Allerton Golf Club and qualified in 1998 whilst at Whitchurch Club. I have been Head Professional at Peterstone Lakes Golf Club, Mountain Ash Golf Club and Aberdare Golf Club. I have always enjoyed competing and have 5 wins as a professional. I have over 25 years of coaching experience and taught at every level from new2golf schemes to European Tour members.

Teaching Philosophy

My passion is golf! I enjoy helping my students improve their games almost as much as I enjoy playing golf myself. Whether it be introducing a beginner to the thrill of a purely-struck shot, watching active players progress and improve their games or helping a competitive player prepare for their next competition, the most important role that I have as your coach is to clearly lay out the steps that are required to take your game to the next level. Golf is not a ‘one size fits all’ sport. Every golfer’s physical make-up is different and as a result, so are their golf swings. By ensuring that you fully understand how your golf swing works, your path to a more successful game becomes much clearer.

Swing Philosophy

Everyone, regardless of size, age or physical ability, is capable of developing a repetitive golf swing. After mastering the fundamentals of grip, posture and alignment, students will learn about the key relationship between arm swing and body rotation. As every golf swing involves this relationship, we will be focusing on finding how to make your swing the most efficient it can be.

My Goals

I want to create a golf academy that is inspiring and motivating, providing the structure and tools to allow my students to reach their full potential.

I want to create an easy pathway that enables new golfers to transition from the range to the course.

I want to create an environment that enables junior golfers to get the best start in the game and help them achieve their goals
