About Us
Built on free draining chalk downland and situated just 3 miles south east of the historic centre of Cambridge, the Gog Magog Golf Club has two excellent and very different courses. The Old Course, opened in 1901, has all the character you would expect from a course with so much history. It has great variety, great views and is a great test for all abilities. The Wandlebury Course, opened in 1997, is now well established and has already hosted Regional Qualifying for The Open for 5 years. Longer than the Old Course and with USGA specification greens, it also has great vistas.

Simon Harrison - Head Professional
I have been a qualified PGA professional for 21 years. Throughout this time I have coached county, international, fellow professionals and even tour professionals. But I happily spend my time at the golf club teaching club golfers and beginners. Over the years I have used my wealth of experience and knowledge acquired over a long career to aid in performance development. I strive to constantly improve my own skill level and develop my coaching strategies by attending numerous courses, which evolve and modernise my style of teaching.

My teaching approach is simple and easy to follow with the focus being on the pupil’s individual needs and physical abilities. I am one of only 37 Foremost registered Performance Analyst coaches in the UK. I offer a variety of coaching sessions ranging from the ‘conventional’ range session to the full performance analysis. Performance analysis is the process that creates a valid and reliable record of performance by means of systematic observation and analysis with a view to facilitate game improvements.

Performance analysis is based on several key areas- physiology, psychology, technical and tactical analysis. By looking at all these areas I will be able to build a picture of what your current capabilities are and most importantly how to improve your performance on the golf course.



Tom Simm - PGA Professional
I turned professional in 2005 after a year travelling, some of which was spent working in sports coaching in Europe and America. I qualified under the guidance of well known coach Lee Scarbrow, of whom I worked with for 5 years at John O'Gaunt GC. After a brief spell in Portugal I then returned to England and was appointed Assistant Professional at Gog Magog under Ian Bamborough. Since being at Gog Magog, my expertees have largely been focused on Junior Golf, where I have created an academy which acts as a feeder for the Junior Section. However, I enjoy coaching all ages and abilities and thrive on the job satisfaction from witnessing an improved golfer and the results that duly follow. I like to incorporate a wide range of aspects and teaching methods into my coaching and don't feel that I should be bounded by any one philosophy. I feel that reacting to a players goals and enhancing their enjoyment of the game is vital, whether that be improving the player psychologically, physically or technically. My job is to identify what can be improved and with the help of the player implement the necessary changes.


Lee Marshall - PGA Professional
I have been a qualified PGA professional since 2012. I have represented Cambridgeshire at county level as an amateur & continue to play regular tournaments on the PGA East Region. I have developed a passion for coaching through studying & understanding ball flights. My goal as a coach is to help you to understand your own golf game/abilities & build a program around your personal goals to maximise performance. I use video analysis frequently to give visual feedback which allows you to match the pictures to the model swing positions/references I am coaching


Matthew Thorpe - PGA Professional
My passion for golf began at the age of 11 and from then I was hooked. As an amateur, I built up my skills at Peterborough Milton Golf Club and soon got to scratch team level. I then represented Northamptonshire at County level. In 2010 I turned professional and with the coaching side always being my passion, I headed off to Australia to gain international coaching experience. I was fortunate enough to Work at the Royal Sydney Golf Club - one of the country's most prestigious courses. During my time there I worked alongside some of the country's best coaches.

Currently, I am the lead coach for the Middlesex under 16 Elite Squad and am based at Playgolf London in Harrow, North-West London.

I pride myself on "making that bad shot better" through a friendly, professional tuition experience, which is based around the key component of engaging and communicating well with all clients. I look forward to helping you reach your full potential".
