John Letters Golf Academy appoints new director

John Letters Golf Academy has added PGA professional Gary Rushgrove to its Solihull team. He joins as academy director after three successful years as director of golf and head professional at Athlone Golf Academy, Ireland.

Rushgrove is a fully-qualified PGA pro who has coached a wide range of golfers, from complete beginner to tour standard, during his twelve years as a professional golfer. He turned professional at 21 and began his career at Chestfield GC in Kent, where he grew the junior section from grass roots to a thriving unit. After five years in Kent, Rushgrove enjoyed a brief stint in America playing in winter tour series events, before returning to the Europe to focus on his coaching career.

Commenting Rushgrove said, “I now look forward to my new challenge here in Solihull and hope to use my previous experience to help John Letters Golf Academy become the ‘go-to place’ where golfers from all walks of life come to improve their game. My team and I are dedicated to providing world-class tuition, from individual game plans all the way to beginners and juniors just starting out in this great game.”
