New head joins Royal Golf Club

Manama : The Royal Golf Club have welcomed new PGA Head Teaching Professional Nikki Hunter to the Academy team.

Hailing from from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in the UK, she started playing golf at the age of 12 and carried out her PGA training in Newcastle, specializing in junior and ladies coaching programmes.

Upon qualifying, she started work at The Address Montgomerie in Dubai where she successfully managed the Ladies Development Programme as well as helping individual clients.

Hinter is also a TPI level one instructor and continues to develop her coaching techniques through research, drills and coaching aids.

“I’m delighted to be here in Bahrain and look forward to working with Juan and Zander, our two PGA Teaching Professionals, on growing the game of golf here,” said Hunter. 

“There hasn’t been a female teaching pro at the Club for a number of years I believe and I look forward particularly to encouraging greater numbers of women to giving this wonderful sport a try.”
