Meet Our PGA Pros

We have four Professional Golfer Association (PGA) Pros based here at SbN offering golf coaching,  lessons and advice. Find out more about the team below:


  • Roly Hitchcock - Head PGA Professional

    Our Golf Manager Roly Hitchcock joined the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) in 1996 and started his training at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club. In 2007, he became Senior Teaching Professional for the club.

    So far during his career, Roly has held a variety of significant teaching posts including U16s Girls Coach for England Golf’s east region and Essex County Coach. He has also worked for various development academies.

    In 2013, Roly qualified as a PGA Level 4 coach, but his personal and professional development didn’t stop there! He is in the process of studying for an MSc in Sports Coaching that will further his understanding of the wants and needs of every golfer that he teaches.

    Roly believes that impact is the most important part of the game and is often the area that many golfers neglect in all aspects of the game.

  • Simon Dainty - PGA Professional

    Simon turned professional after a successful amateur career achieving representation for England and winning the England U18 Schoolboys Championships.

    Having enjoyed over fifty professional wins across Europe, he is now turned his focus to developing golfers to maximise their potential. Having gained valuable experience from training with Master Professional Pete Cowen (the most successful coach on the European tour) and Mike Hebron, Simon has a wealth of knowledge on swing mechanics and believes you have to instil constants to gain consistency, something every golfer needs. He has worked with all standards of golfers to bring out the best in them from beginners, County players, International golfers, and Professionals.

    He draws on his experience in his previous role as Head of Schools for the Lee Westwood Golf School to provide a structured learning approach, working with what players have in a simple but successful way. His motivation to improve a player is infectious, his strong people skills and communication help provide a unique coaching experience.
