Porters Park Golf Club


David Gleeson PGA Head Professional

David began his professional career in 1970 at Royal St Georges. In 1971, whilst working as an assistant professional at Dunstable Downs, he won the Southern championship and became the youngest ever successful candidate in the PGA school. He also played in the Open in 1975 but decided at that point to follow a club and teaching career rather than becoming a touring pro.

Prior to being appointed as the Head Professional at Porters Park in 1988, he held the same appointment at both Walmer and Kingsdown GC and Hythe GC in Kent.

He really enjoys the role and is well known to all members through coaching and the many other responsibilities demanded of his position as Head Professional.

Of particular note is the annual Maltby Challenge competition when the Club Captain and the Pro take on the members in a foursomes competition in three stages from April until October. This culminates in a Grand Final with the best pair from each stage trying to outdo each other to win the Cup.
