Luther joined the Professional Golfer’s Association in 1973; in 2007 he received their highest award of “Master” P.G.A. Professional, for his services to the Teaching industry.
As Club Professional to Woburn Golf Club for 34 years and inventor of the renowned Explanar Golf Training System, Luther brings a wealth of experience to support our Head Professional Stuart Hall, as he builds his team of dedicated Professionals.
Travelling internationally establishing Explanar, Luther has experienced first-hand, many of the world’s best coaching facilities, from Gleneagles, Celtic Manor, Woburn, Augusta, Woodhall Spa, and the “Butch” Harmon School of Golf in Las Vegas.
Luther’s vision as Consultant Master P.G.A. Professional, is to include the eclectic best features from the above, within the proposed Ashridge Teaching Academy. Put simply, the goal is to create a world class coaching facility worthy of Ashridge and its surroundings.
“To come to Ashridge is a dream come true and I’m thrilled to be teaching such a keen and active golfing membership” says Luther.
From the age of three, my dad had a golf club in my hand and nothing much has changed since. Having competed himself, on the European Challenge and Australasian Tour, he has been a great mentor to me throughout my golfing career. From playing school golf at Berkhamsted, going on to play in various regional stroke play and match play events as a junior, my passion for the game led me to a scratch handicap. After turning professional in 2019, I began undertaking my PGA Qualifications at South Herts through the University of Birmingham, while competing in East Region Professional tournaments.
As a level 2 coach, I have given lessons to golfers of all abilities at clubs in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, as well as running a successful Junior academy. I feel that my strong knowledge of the ever-growing modern game, along with being well-versed in launch monitor data and video technology, will aid me in developing your golf. In what will be my final year of qualification, I am committed to helping Stuart make the member experience at Ashridge reach its maximum potential. Whether on the range coaching, or in the shop helping you, I look forward to being a positive part of the club moving forward.

“I love the game of golf and the rewards it gives me; the biggest reward by far is building customer relationships.”
Having started playing golf almost as soon as he could walk, Jamie was happy that he was able to make his childhood passion his career. After spending a year in the States, he enjoyed roles at the PGA and later the Ladies European Tour (LET) where he became a rules official, working at events such as the AIG Women's Open as part of the tournament operations team. Jamie continues to work as a freelance rules official for the LET and regularly travels to events around the world. He became a member of Ashridge in 2018 after moving to the area, and has now joined the Professional team. He has enjoyed getting to know the membership and working with the rest of the team, to give both members and visitors a warm welcome to the Pro-shop and the club.
