Allan Martin


PGA Coach Education & Development Manager (Scotland)

Golfing History:

Started playing golf at 7 years of age. Played at club, county and Schools International level. Started PGA Training in 1993, qualifying in 1996. Due to coaching commitments I play social golf and in addition compete in around 6 PGA Patrons Society events annually.

What excites you most about being a Coach Developer?

Giving Coaches the support they require to enhance their coaching skills. With this support I hope to enthuse and inspire coaches who will in turn enthuse and inspire the players they work with. Coaching in the broadest terms is effecting a change in culture in a positive manner. If the role of Coach Developer helps to facilitate a positive cultural change in golf no matter how small then that would be an achievement to aspire to.

What value do you hope to add to the volunteer coaches you meet?

Supporting and nurturing coaches so that they acquire and develop the necessary qualities and coaching skills necessary to meet the needs of the youth participants of Scottish Golf and to align coaches to the PGA 21st Century vision of "Right Coach, Right Place, Right Time

Describe yourself in 3 words:

Approachable, Patient, Fun
