Duncan Arnold - PGA Professional

Having been a golf pro since 1979 I have gained much experience as a playing professional and also a teaching professional. The highlight of my playing career was playing the Volvo PGA championship at Wentworth in 1996. I have taught in as far away lands as Abu Dhabi and Australia. My time now here at Sidmouth is split between teaching and the golf shop.
