Daniel Wood PGA
Daniel Wood - Head PGA Professional

Turning professional in 2009 and qualifying as a PGA Professional in 2011 coincided with Daniel moving to Hirsel Golf Club in March 2011 and taking on his new role.

So far some of his Hirsel Golf club career highlights have been creating a Junior section, where already two juniors have come through to win the Men’s Club Championships, as well as working with the Club's Committee and Staff to continually grow the Club, creating a modern and enjoyable experience for all our members and visitors.

2022 was a fantastic season! Firstly being awarded the PGA Advanced Professional Award and then in the summer, despite the lack of competition golf, Daniel won on the PGA Circuit for the first time since 2011.
