Birchwood Park Golf Centre Head Pro searching for next superstar
June 6, 2012

New Birchwood Park Golf Centre Head Professional Stephen Lee is looking to discover the next Luke Donald or Lee Westwood as he sets to work expanding the facility's junior golf programmes.

Stephen, 33, is no stranger to golf in Kent having worked in the county for 11 years, guiding two golfers to Junior Order of Merit titles and a further three into the professional golf ranks.

An experienced PGA qualified professional, Stephen has built a reputation as a first-class coach who has forged strong relationships with local businesses, schools and the community, something he will continue in his new role at Birchwood Park - part of BGL Golf, the UK's leading golf course owner and operator.

"I was extremely impressed with the facilities and vision of both BGL Golf and Birchwood Park, which is one of the top pay and play golf venues in the south east," said Stephen.

"My goal is to significantly increase the number of junior golfers, and with the support of my new colleagues there will be frequent coaching courses available to golfers of all ages and abilities looking to learn and improve.

"From a teaching point of view, Birchwood Park has exceptional facilities, perfect for nurturing talent. Hopefully we'll discover the next Luke Donald or Lee Westwood."

Birchwood Park's 18-hole Main Course - which winds its way beautifully through the lush Kent countryside - is accompanied by the equally impressive 9-hole Par-3 Orchard Course, which is the ideal place for those taking their first steps in the game, under the watchful eye of Stephen.

Away from the golf course the new Head Professional has big plans for the Pro Shop at the facility.

"I plan to turn the shop into one of the best golf superstores in the south east, with competitive prices and high quality products including PING, TaylorMade and Callaway," added Stephen.

"Custom fitting will be a major focus of mine too as I firmly believe this is the method by which all golfers should be choosing golf equipment."

Graham Rolland, Birchwood Park Golf Centre General Manager, said: "Stephen has a proven track record as one of the top junior coaches in the county. His vision and objectives for his career matched ours at Birchwood Park, and we are confident that together we can grow the junior section and help the youngsters at the centre to become the best golfers they possibly can.

"On behalf of the entire Birchwood Park team, I welcome Stephen and wish him luck in his new role here."
