Julian Munks

PGA Professional & Retail Manager

I feel very lucky to have been involved in the golf industry for 30 years now and actively coaching players of all abilities, ranging from fellow Pros to absolute beginners, as a fully qualified PGA instructor for 27 years. Having been based at Silvermere for the entirety I have seen it develop into one the most fantastic golf facilities in the country and a perfect place to take up golf or hone your skills.


My approach to coaching has always been to try and keep the game as simple as possible. With all lessons I will use my iPad so the pupil always has a visual back up to the instructions,  in conjunction with the Hudl teaching app to again help simplify the message. Lessons are available on the driving range , short game area and also on the golf course.


Whether it is the start of your golfing journey or you are looking to get your handicap down please call me on 07985027294 or call the shop on 01932 584303 to book a lesson and help you to maximise your enjoyment from this fantastic ( sometimes frustrating) game of golf.

Since joining the PGA in the year 2000, I have gained vast experience of the golf swing, teaching players of all ages and abilities. I started my training in the Midland Region at Kettering Golf Club, before moving to Hampshire 6 years ago. I joined Silvermere after a year working in Perth, Australia. My approach to the game of golf is to make it simple, enjoyable, and instill confidence in my pupils without loading them with too much technical information.

Rhys Walton PGA Coach profile

Rhys Walton

PGA Professional
CALCULUS Accredited Coach

I have been a professional for over 6 years and have been playing the game for 20 years. I first started teaching in Ireland where I worked with all levels of players from the complete beginner to scratch handicaps.

Teaching is a passion of mine as well as playing the game. My view is that every player can improve their game and reach their full potential with a simple approach. I believe all areas of the game hold an equal importance to bettering your score.

With attending over 50 coaching seminars covering many subjects such as techinal , mental, biomechanics, practice habits and intuitive I’ve formed on holistic approach in my coaching and become an expert in my field.

Nicky Sinclair

PGA Professional
CALCULUS Accredited Coach

As a qualified PGA professional now for over 10 years I have been been incredibly fortunate to work at some world renowned private golf clubs in the UK and America such as Prestwick in Scotland and Whisper Rock in Arizona USA. 

During these years I have been able to learn from multiple instructors and current PGA touring professionals which has been invaluable. 

One of the key elements I’ve learned to coaching is; it is much more than simply saying – “this is what needs to be done to improve”. It’s learning how you (my client) learns best. Do you learn more with verbal or video instruction? 

Do you learn better through drills or games? Golf is not one dimensional and your coaching shouldn’t be either. 

I look forward to working with you to improve your game; together we shall create an achievable goal to work towards, but ultimately strive to surpass it.

Michael Peregrin

PGA Professional
CALCULUS Accredited Coach

I have been working in golf for over 15 years and have been dedicated to coaching golf for over 10 years.  I love continuing to develop myself as a coach and keeping up-to-date with the latest research and ideas within the industry.  I am part of the Sussex county coaching team where I am passionate about helping develop aspiring young gofers.  I am very interested in the mental aspects of golf and enjoy presenting webinars and online courses.

My aim as a golf coach is to help all pupils achieve their truest potential by using a holistic coaching model which can include swing technique, short-game, golfing fitness and the mental-game.  My approach is to first assess my pupil.  This offers an enhanced understanding of their game and gives much needed information to help create a personalised plan to help achieve their own personal golfing goals.

My approach to changing technique is to prescribe as little information as possible but achieve maximum technical gains.  The method I use is one of ‘drawing’ out subconscious movement patterns by establishing clarity at impact and linking the golf swing to already understood everyday movements.

Ian Campbell of Silvermere

Ian Campbell

PGA Professional

Having been a member of the PGA for the past 29 years I have seen and taught a wide variety of golfers, from complete beginners to scratch players and I believe every golfer can be helped and taught to hit the ball further and straighter but more importantly be more consistent. 

My journey into the PGA started at Silvermere in 1989 and I worked for a year before taking a position at Wimbledon Park Golf Club as an assistant professional and I started my PGA training and became fully qualified in 1994 and then I was appointed assistant professional at Sunningdale Golf Club. Having spent 4 magnificent years at Sunningdale it was time for me to take the plunge and look for a position of Head Professional, in 1998 I was appointed Head Pro at Calcot Park Golf Club and spent 10 years there before moving to Ashford Manor GC as Head Pro, now my life had gone full circle and I returned to Silvermere in 2017. 

I have been married to my wonderful wife Mellony since 1996 and I have two beautiful children Evie (2001) & Bryn (2005).

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your game.


Dave Aitchison

PGA Professional

I grew up learning to play the game of golf at the prestigious Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

As an amateur golfer I represented Scotland at international boys level before attending Louisiana State University (LSU) in the Unites States NCAA Division 1. After college I turned professional undertaking the PGA programme based at Hayling Golf Club in the South of England. Here I developed my passion for teaching the game.

I believe it is important to achieve a well rounded understanding of all the different skill sets required from long game, to short game, including the mental side of the game to develop the maximum potential.

I am heading into my seventh year at Silvermere. Please get in touch if you would like me to help develop your game
