About Sam Cowley
My introduction to golf started at the age of 13, and since, it has become the overwhelmingly biggest component in my life, no longer just a passionate hobby but my whole professional career. After rapidly falling in love with the game I became a full junior member of Haywards Hath Golf Club, taking the role of Junior Captain where I then went on to achieve the junior course record of which I can proudly say I still hold.
In 2008 I commenced my employment at the prestigious West Sussex Golf Club, with a stunning course boasting beautiful playing conditions I perfected my game and nurtured my studies to qualify as a PGA professional. Under cherished leadership and with the immeasurable encouragement and support from members I gained a wealth of experience.
Five years on I joined Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club to work alongside my brother who had taken on the Head Professional position. Working together, we learnt the necessary building blocks to create a solid business foundation, honing our skills and merging them together. It is this invaluable experience which allowed me to fully understand the running of a successful business and ignited my own personal ambitions, which has led me to now.
I am proud to be the Head PGA Professional at Haywards Heath Golf Club, having come full circle to exactly where my journey began. I pride myself on the provision of reliable quality services to the membership and visitors alike, offering performance coaching, the latest in clubs and technology from all the major golf suppliers, to women’s and men’s apparel relevant to all the latest fashions from a range of reputable brands.
My mission is to be renown for what we do because we do it best.
Myself and my team are here to provide you with first class service and a warm welcome.
I’m a fully qualified PGA professional with years of experience, having played as a junior for Sussex and England Girls. I joined the team at Haywards Heath Golf Club in 2016 and I am passionate about coaching and developing adults and juniors alike.
I am 24 years old, and training to be a PGA Pro. I have played golf since I was 4 and have been a junior member since I was 10. I was the Junior Vice Captain in 2016
