Meet the Team
Jack Heginbotham – Head PGA Professional
Having taken up Golf at the age of 12 and becoming a local junior member and Club Champion, I then quickly progressed on to represent Somerset Golf Union at U16’s & U18’s level. Whilst studying Sport & Exercise Science at Bridgwater College I won the Somerset Schools Championships and went on to represent the South West in the English Schools Finals. I was then fortunate enough to be selected for a South West Development Squad (AASE) before turning professional in August 2011.
It had always been my ambition to become a Head PGA Professional. After I completed my PGA Foundation Degree associated with Birmingham University in 2014, I was asked to take on the role as Wells Golf Club Head PGA Professional.
