Peter Evans - Head PGA ProfessionalPeter began playing golf as junior member at th neighbouring golf course of Pyle and Kenfig. At 15 years of age he became a Welsh boys international and in 1982 joined Graham Poor at Royal Porthcawl as an assistant trainee professional.
Having been elected to full PGA status in 1985, he spent 6 years playing competitive golf in Wales, The West Region, The Sunshine Tour (South Africa), The Safari Tour (Mid Africa) and The European Tour.
In 1991 Peter left his friend and mentor Graham Poor at Royal Porthcawl and was appointed as the Head Professional at Kingsdown Golf Club near Bath. In just 21 months he returned as the Head Professional when his peer, Graham Poor, tragically lost his life in an air crash. In doing so he became only the fourth professional in the club's long and illustrious history.
