Martyn Stubbings - PGA Professional
Hi I’m Martyn Stubbings, the PGA Club Professional here at Seaton Carew. I aim to provide a first class service to the members and visitors to the club, by creating a welcoming first impression and modern shopping experience. We are very fortunate to have a newly refurbished shop, in close proximity to the 1st tee and the 18th green, with superb teaching and club fitting facilities. Making up my professional staff is James Maw - PGA Professional, and Andrew Stubbings – Powakaddy and Motocaddy service and repairs.
My first head professional role came at the tender age of just 21 years and 9 days at my boyhood club Dinsdale Spa, making me the youngest PGA Head Professional in the UK at the time. Always a lover of both Football and Golf, the latter came to me relatively late and due to my diminutive stature through my teenage years, it was tough! I definitely needed my short game to help me out, but once I grew bigger than my golf bag I was away and kicking! A relatively straight hitting golfer, and a streaky putter at best, my knowledge for coaching and wanting to be better has improved my playing ability every year as a professional to where I am today, even though my score may not always prove that!
Having access to and owning Trackman technology for the past 15 years, my knowledge of ball flight laws and custom fitting principles are my speciality. Using this data to identify priorities for the golfer is the skill, with the art coming from what to change and when. I pride myself on ‘reading’ a golfer and which path to choose to maximise their enjoyment and ability. We are all very different and must be treated as such, all part of the fun and the challenge! All sections of the club's membership are targeted to improve their experiences and increase and retain our membership numbers. Seaton Carew Golf Club is a perfect venue for any ages, and I am always looking to produce the next junior, club, ladies or seniors champion who will take the pound off their partners.
I am delighted to offer custom fitting of clubs using Trackman, including but not limited to Callaway, Ping, Taylormade, Titlest, Cobra, Mizuno and Wilson.
The Professional's shop is open from around 8.00am until 6.00pm weekdays, opening earlier on weekends during the summer, with earlier closing during the winter months.
In the golf shop we have 60 of the best brands in golf to choose from, with different budgets in mind to help all golfers choose their goods wisely and satisfy their needs. I promise the best UK prices and will do everything I can to offer you the most competitive, well stocked shopping outlet I can.
The direct number for the professional shop is 01429 266249.
