Kevin Bowden Club Professional


Kevin turned professional in 1980 after a successful amateur career. His First position was with the highly regarded Terry Healy at the Portsmouth Golf Centre, where he Qualified as a full PGA Professional.


In 1984 he moved to Lee On The Solent Golf Club (his home club) where he worked under John Richardson, leaving in 1993 to open Swanmore Golf Centre.


During his time as a professional Kevin has been a multiple winner of tournaments and recognised as one of the best teachers in Hampshire, and a man the professionals regularly turn to for swing tweaks.


"Sadly too many golfers start the game and never feel the need to get instruction not only on the basic fundamentals but advanced ones too.

Rather than struggling with a part of the game you are poor at, a few lessons and advice could transform your game - Try it and see"
