Burhill Golf Club welcomes new head pro Ben Rosser
Burhill Golf Club, the flagship venue for Burhill Golf and Leisure Ltd (BGL), is pleased to welcome their new head professional, Ben Rosser, who will join the club on 1st March, 2016.

Ben has been working within the golf industry since 2003, and has spent 11 years with BGL at the neighbouring Hoebridge Golf Centre; one of the most extensive golf facilities in the South of England.

“I have always wanted to make a career in golf, and I feel I’ve taken every opportunity to improve my skills and knowledge of coaching,” commented Ben.

“The fact that BGL has handed me the opportunity to use my knowledge and experience to help maximise the facilities and develop the thriving junior, men’s, and ladies’ contingent at such a prestigious club as Burhill is incredibly rewarding.”

In 1999, Ben’s career in the golf industry began when he undertook a National Diploma in Golf Studies. Since then, he has achieved a Higher National Diploma in Golf Management and gained his PGA status with the completion of a Foundation Degree in Professional Golf.

It was during his degree that he joined the BGL group at Hoebridge Golf Centre, and worked his way through the business until he was named head professional of the centre in 2014.

Career achievements for Ben during his time with BGL have included helping to redesign the on-site driving range at Hoebridge, implementing lesson initiatives that have introduced over 1500 new players to the game, successfully running one of the largest golf shops in the Woking area, and being appointed Surrey County Partnership’s Under 16 Boys’ Elite Squad lead coach.

Alongside managing a successful team of professionals at Hoebridge and coaching his clients – amongst which are a number of club and county champions from the area – Ben also finds time to compete professionally, and has enjoyed several top 10 finishes on the Jamega Pro Golf Tour and TP Tour.

Colin Mayes, CEO of Burhill Golf and Leisure, has always believed in recruiting from within the company where possible: “As an employer, we strive to support the development and growth of our employees. Ben has amassed decades of experience, most of which he has done with BGL, and we’re eager to bring his wealth of knowledge here to Burhill.”

Established in 1907 and nestled in leafy parkland on the outskirts of Walton-on-Thames, Burhill has a long-standing reputation as one of the finest golf clubs in Surrey and the south-east. The venue is highlighted by two superb 18-hole golf courses and a Georgian mansion clubhouse which is home to two bars, The Green restaurant and private dining facilities for up to 150 guests.
