Our Academy Team
Winchester Golf Academy is extremely proud of our husband and wife team of PGA qualified professionals, Gary and Emma Booth. They have been on board since the beginning and have been instrumental in shaping the direction that the business takes. They are fantastic coaches, serious experts, and passionate about golf. We're lucky to have them leading the team and we're sure you'll find them as knowledgeable, engaging and encouraging as we do.
Gary Booth - PGA Professional and Academy Manager
Gary wants to live in a world where Southampton Football Club are in the Champions League, Bradley Wiggins is his Sunday morning cycling partner and it’s warm enough to always play golf in a short sleeved shirt.
From his first swing with a club it was clear that Gary had a talent for golf and by the age of 14 he had attained a 3 handicap. He enjoyed a wonderful amateur career competing in top-level amateur golf competitions all over the country.
As a technically minded individual he has always kept up to date with the scientific advances in golf equipment. It was this interest that led him into undertaking the PGA training and becoming a custom club fitter and coach.

Emma Booth - PGA Professional and Academy Manager
Emma wants to live in a world where golf is played by all - with a smile on their face - and she has the ability to talk to animals.
By 13 she was a full squad member of the Cheshire Girls County team and by 15 the Ladies County team. Her amateur career highlights include winning the English and British under 18’s strokeplay championships in the same year and being selected for the England U18 and 21 squads.
At the age of 22 and after a spell of golf coaching in America she decided to pursue her love of coaching and train to become a P.G.A professional. She is passionate about helping people realise their potential in the wonderful game of golf. She is an avid reader of material in her field, particularly sports psychology.
Emma is also a regular contributor to Lady Golfer magazine.

James Morgan - PGA Professional
James started playing golf when he was just ten years old at the West Sussex Golf Club but has spent several years playing, competing and coaching in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. His favourite course is Cape Kidnappers in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, famous for its pristine condition and stunning views from the cliffs.
James’ top moment was winning the Holden Scramble in Australia; his lowest score is 7 under; and he’s another team member who has chalked up a few holes in one, eight to be precise, and the first of these when he was just 12 years old!
With a coaching style that makes the best use of V1 software to view technique and swing comparisons, James’ ProAgenda diary link is below so you can check his availability and book, or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
