Golf Professional Role

About Myerscough

At Myerscough College and University Centre we have a nationally and internationally recognised Further Education, Higher Education, Adult Education and Apprenticeship provision. The Further Education provision is well established, the Higher Education provision has a well-recognised partnership with UCLan and the apprenticeship provision is operational nationally. We are one of the top five largest land-based and sports colleges in the UK.

Situated in a prime location in Bilsborrow, off the A6, just north of Preston, Myerscough Golf Complex is considered to be one of the most progressive and successful golf venues in the Northwest for people wanting to learn golf. Our golf coaching programmes are supported by the England Golf ‘Get into Golf’ initiative and the Junior Golf Foundation. With the latest technology and expert PGA Professional staff, the Complex boasts the best facilities in the Northwest for learning golf.

Our golf provision is extensive and you can find out more about our educational offer here - Golf | Myerscough College

Our current membership levels are strong and quite consistent year on year.

What we are looking for

We already have PGA staff working on site daily; however, this team are focused on our students and education programmes. We are looking for a self-employed Golf Professional to create an offer for Myerscough that will provide services for our existing members; attract new members or visitors; and act as an additional expert resource for our golf students to access.

We are open to considering all options that are put to us. For example, only being based at Myerscough for certain days of the week, specialising in certain groups or lesson types, or operating flexibly on an on-demand basis.

It is important to note though that the golf facilities are primarily a teaching resource and as an educational establishment our students must take priority. Lessons could take place at daytimes during the week but due to timetables this may be limited. Therefore, late afternoons, evenings and weekends are likely to be your peak times.

The Golf Professional will work closely with the Curriculum Area Manager for Sport, and the Sports Centre team, in order to establish the most effective ways of operating.

Expressions of interest

If you are interested in becoming part of the team then please submit your expression of interest by Friday 9th August 2024, which should contain:

  • Your CV, evidencing PGA Membership or equivalent golf coaching qualifications.

  • Operating model, in terms of days and times of operation and any stipulations or restrictions. You may wish to integrate this in to your business case.

Please note that as part of our commitment to safeguarding our students, our background screening checks include limited online searches. Online searches will only be undertaken in respect of the successful candidate, as a pre-conditional term of our job offer.

Safeguarding our students is of paramount importance. Our recruitment process has been designed to keep students safe and to ensure that we appoint safe and suitable people.

We are an equal opportunity employer; we want all our candidates to have a fair and equal opportunity to secure employment with us. We encourage applications from all underrepresented groups: BAME applicants, disabled applicants, and LGBT+ applicants.
