Jodie Dartford – Head Professional

Jodie has been the Head Professional at Upminster Golf Club since 2008. Jodie completed her PGA Diploma here and has been a Professional at the Club since 2004. Jodie has competed in several Ladies PGA events and through her success proceeded to then qualify to play on the Ladies European Tour.

Jodie’s main passion has always been to teach, and is our teaching Professional at Upminster Golf Club. Jodie has recently started to introduce a Coaching Academy at the Club.

I teach all ages and abilities which consist of members and visitors of the club. I believe in helping every client to understand what they are trying to achieve from each lesson and why, which then gives a much better understanding when they leave the lesson and go away to practice. Part of the introduction process in your first lesson will be to set realistic goals to suit your needs and expectations. Every lesson is complimented with a skytrak launch monitor offering video analysis of your ball flight which in turn shows you your progression throughout each lesson.

Chris Nunn – Director of Golf

In 2001, Chris left his job within HSBC, a position he’d held for 15 years, to embark on a two year self funding playing schedule on the PGA EuroPro Tour. In 2003 he was offered the opportunity to take his training with the PGA gaining full PGA accreditation with honours in 2007 receiving a scholarship from Titleist for his academic achievements. During this time Chris was fortunate to win the Assistants Championships in 2005 and qualify for the National Assistants Championships the same year.

In 2010, Chris was selected by Essex County to become their Lead Development Coach within the County Academy Programme a post he had to leave when appointed as Golf Complex Manager at Rickmansworth Golf Course, Hertfordshire. He soon returned to his roots as Director of Golf at The Burstead Golf Club a position he held for 8 years. In 2015 he was appointed Captain of the Essex PGA.

Chris has worked alongside many influential people within the world of golf in order to hone his playing skills, knowledge and passion for teaching. Coaches such as Peter Mitchell (4 times winner on the European Tour, Seniors Tour Player, and coach to Brian Davis), Dennis Pugh (Sky presenter and coach to several PGA Tour players including Colin Montgomerie), and Chris Jenkins (Essex County coach and coach to Oliver Fisher) have all had an influence over Chris’s professional career.

“As an accredited PGA instructor my coaching philosophy focuses on two aspects of the swing, body movement and plane. With me it’s the dog wagging the tail scenario, if the body is not functioning properly the arms will not swing correctly, however, neither of these are effective if we do not hold the club or address the ball properly”

Should you be struggling with your swing and would like me to have a look at any aspect of your game or would like more information on our products and services please either e-mail him at [email protected] or contact me directly on 01708 220000
