Cranleigh Golf & Country Club is delighted to announce that Charlie Tetlow will become the new head professional on June 16, 2018.
Formerly a competitor on the Asian Tour and EuroPro circuit, Charlie has devoted his time to coaching in recent times with roles at The Wynyard Club, Urban Golf Performance, No1 Junior Golf Academy and most recently with Hoebridge Golf Centre.
He said: “The call came completely out of the blue but I’m really excited to be joining Cranleigh.
“Karl has done a lot of great work with the academy and I’ll be looking to take that on. It will be very, very similar but I’m keen to bring more juniors and new golfers through the ranks and bring in a few of my own ideas and methods.”
Charlie has extensive knowledge of coaching and modern techniques, employing state-of-the-art technology and fresh methods to combine the benefits of fitness and biomechanics with golf.
He said: “I’m a bit of sports nerd and I’m doing a sports science degree but there are many ways to use knowledge and technology to get the best from your ability. I’m looking forward to sharing that with the Cranleigh members and hopefully bringing some new golfers to the club.”
Karl Morgan, who is leaving the golf industry to take up a role in digital marketing, recommended Charlie, 28, for the position.
Karl said: “I thought Charlie was the perfect fit so I’m delighted for him. I’ve really enjoyed my three years at Cranleigh and will miss it hugely but the time is right to take on a new challenge.”
Cranleigh general manager, Nick Hughes, said: “Karl has successfully developed the golf tuition at the club, and in the process, has reduced a lot of our members’ handicaps. He has been a model golf professional and a great ambassador for the club. We wish him the very best in his new role.
“Charlie is a fantastic successor and we’re sure he will continue the great work that Karl has achieved and will put his own stamp on the role as he settles in and brings in some of his own ideas.”
Charlie will continues to host regular group coaching sessions for adults and juniors with a new assistant professional set to join him in the near future. Call 01483 268855 or email pro@cranleighcountryclub for more details.
