Brian Lee

PGA Head Professional

Brian is a vastly experienced PGA Professional with an established background as a great player and a great coach.

We are happy to say that Brian can still play to a highly competitive level and in 2015 there were individual wins at Langland Bay in the Gwalia Housing Trust Pro Am and at Radyr, in the Asbri Welsh National PGA Championship Pro Am. Further on course success came in the Golfplan Pro-Captain Challenge, when alongside Carl Hicks, a regional qualifying win saw The Parc team reach the grand final at the PGA Sultan Course in Antalya, Turkey where they finished a very creditable third.

Joe Vickery

Joe Vickery

PGA Teaching Professional

Joe turned professional in August 2012 after a very successful Amateur career representing Wales both Nationally and Internationally at all levels.

In 2006 Joe was winner of Welsh Schools Championship, in 2007 he won both the Welsh Boys Open Stroke Play and Match Play and in 2008 Joe reached the semi-final of The Amateur Championship.

Joe is currently a full time coach teaching out of the Parc Golf Club in South Wales. Since starting his PGA qualification in September 2012, Joe has switched his focus to coaching and developing young golf talent in Wales. In January 2012 Joe started working with National Wales coach Neil Matthews coaching players age 9-12 in the first ever Golf Union of Wales’ Nursery Squad. Joe has now moved on and from January 2017 he is now the coach for the Golf Union of Wales’ Academy B Squad.

In December 2013 Joe was appointed by the Gwent Golf Union with the task of getting new juniors to join Gwent Golf Clubs. As well as being a development coach Joe became Gwent Golf Union’s Under 16 & Under 18 coach in 2015 to which the team went on to win the Channel League for the very first time.

Joe’s goal in coaching is to provide all pupils with solid fundamentals and to give every pupil an understanding of where they can improve, whether they are a junior or a senior.

Josh Mayo

Josh Mayo

PGA Assistant Professional

Joshua Mayo joined The Parc in October 2015, as Assistant Professional after previously carrying out work experience at The Celtic Manor.

His involvement in golf started at a very early age, with his interest nurtured by his dad, Paul, who himself was an Amateur Champion, Open Championship and Masters Competitor, as well as a former European Tour Player.

Josh studied at Bassaleg School and took an interest in Sports Psychology. At that time, he trained in the Wales Under 16 Development squad. Josh carried forward his interest to the  University of South Wales, from where he graduated with a BSc Sports Psychology gaining a 2:1. Whilst completing his degree, Josh captained the University golf team.

Josh hopes to use the insight and skills that he gained during his degree to bring a holistic approach to coaching for all ages and abilities.

His main focus here at The Parc will be to encourage new memberships by bringing together a wide range of coaching sessions and techniques.
