Professional Team


Peter Cherry – Head P.G.A. Professional

Peter has always been a Hertfordshire golfer and went on to successfully qualify as a PGA professional in 1990. In 2003, he went on to win the PGA East Region Order of Merit and during the same year, was appointed as Head Coach to the Hertfordshire Golf Union which continued for the next three years until early 2006. As a career highlight, he played in the Volvo PGA Championship at Wentworth in May 2004 and has always enjoyed the challenge that comes from competitive golf. Currently the holder of five course records - his favourite being a 64 (-7) at Knebworth GC – Peter has been the Head PGA Professional at Ashridge Golf Club since November 2006. With golf running through his veins, Peter loves seeing golfers he coaches move on to better, and subsequently, more enjoyable golf. He doesn’t make golfers swing the club in a particular fashion, but instead works to help each golfer deliver the clubhead back to the golf ball more consistently. Peter’s playing and teaching credentials speak for themselves and his simple, approachable and flexible application of his teaching philosophy towards individuals helps to make golf lessons a unique and enjoyable experience. Well known and highly respected in the golfing fraternity, Peter enjoys nothing more than seeing golfers improve and consequently, enjoy their golf more. After a lesson with Peter, you will be armed with easy-to-understand, honest advice, that will allow you to better understand your own swing and let you enjoy your game a whole lot more.

Stuart Hall – P.G.A. Professional

Having turned professional in 2013, Stuart was awarded the Best First Year Trainee within the PGA of England East, which included golf coaching examinations. Having successfully completed his PGA Foundation Degree in the summer of 2016, Stuart currently has over 50 golfers that he coaches on a regular basis. Renowned for his excellent short game teaching ability, Stuart is also great at motivating and enthusing kids and his objective when coaching is to instruct in a fun, enthusiastic, encouraging and simple manner. Hugely popular and easygoing, Stuart really enjoys watching golfers improve.

Jessica Heap – P.G.A. Assistant Professional

As a junior golfer, Jessica represented the Cypriot national team in many international events, and as a result of her performance, was awarded Best Female Golfer of the Year in both 2013 and 2014. In 2014, she was fortunate enough to be chosen by the Greek Olympic Committee to run a section with the Queen’s Baton for the Commonwealth Games, of which she was the first European athlete to hold the baton prior to the games. After a distinguished Junior career, Jessica turned professional in 2015, and is currently in her third and final year of her PGA Training. She gained her Level 2 coaching qualifications in April 2017 and is now starting to build up her clientele. As a female golfer herself, Jess feels that is it very important to grow female participation in golf and would like to encourage more women and girls to start playing the game, and as such, she now runs and administers “Girls-only” coaching sessions which take place in a relaxed, encouraging and most importantly, fun, golfing environment.
