For Golfers, By Golfers

Our Story

PGA-Golfer has been created by two brothers, Joe and Ned, who want to share their passion for the game of golf with as many other people as possible. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, professional or a well seasoned golfing veteran… they aim to make golfing information, guides and the latest product reviews applicable to everyone. 

The Mission

We have seen the sport of golf grow year on year. It’s safe to say that the sport which has been around since the 15th century is not going away! 

Even with the sport growing, many people still have the mindset that ‘golf is too expensive to get start’ or ‘it’s too complicated to understand’. 

As avid golfers ourselves, who want to continually improve our game, we found that it only takes a quick Google to find a lot of nonsense online, written by people who want to make a quick buck at the expense of others (mainly beginners) who know no better. Our mission is to eliminate this from the market and bring you, our readers, high quality, research backed and personally tested golfing guides, information and product reviews. 

If it doesn’t improve your game, if it doesn’t fit your budget, if it doesn’t suit your playing style, we won’t recommend it. 

 

About Ned

For as long as I can remember, my old man has played golf. He was never a serious player, he just dabbled in the sport and attended a few annual trips with his friends and played in a couple of the opens at our local club. After I turned 13, he started to regularly take me down to the driving range to see how hard I could hit (or miss) the ball. 

Before golf, I had always played team sports, whether it be football, cricket or rugby. But I instantly fell in love with golf and became obsessed with trying to improve my game. 

I started with a membership at my local club, and now frequently play at 4 clubs in my local area as well as travelling to play ‘higher-end’ clubs around the UK. 

I’ve been playing golf for almost a decade now. That went by fast! Now i’m wondering why I aint better?

About Joe

I came to the game a little later than Ned. I started playing properly when I was 20. I saw it as a way to get out of the city and into the countryside on nice weekends. I can remember playing 9-iron to the green from 130 yards and it landing 2 foot away. From that moment I was hooked and I have played ever since. 

I have been fortunate to play all over the world at some of the best courses available. 

I am slightly envious of Ned because I am one of those consistent middle of the fairway, no thrills sort of players. I make par and move on. Ned, on the other hand, drives it 300 yards, chips on within 6 foot and then still makes a bogey! It is never dull. 

What I think sets this website apart from others is that we spend the time to test and research all of the products. We have no agenda and are not looking to sell you anything – we just want to share our golfing experience so you can avoid some of the (very expensive!) mistakes I/we made at the beginning of our golfing journey.
