Ramside Hall Golf Club in County Durham has signed Wayne Feeney as its attached touring professional.

When not playing in regional and international PGA events, Feeney, who was born in Durham, will be holding group clinics to help players hone their skills and their swings. He will also be on hand to help host corporate events at the club, which boasts two 18-hole championship courses and a 16-bay driving range.

Feeney’s interest in golf began when his family moved to a house opposite Hobson Golf Club at Burnopfield, near Newcastle. Since turning professional in 2016, he has played two seasons on the PGA Euro Pro Tour with two top-10 finishes in regional PGA events. 

In October 2020, he finished in the top-five of the PGA Euro Pro Tour Qualifying School at The Players Club in Bristol to secure his tour card for the 2021 season, sponsored by HQBS Energy Solutions.

And, in preparation for the qualifying for the European Tour in September, he will be honing his own game on Ramside Golf Club’s par-72 Prince Bishop’s Course and Cathedral Course.

“They’re both fantastic courses,” Feeney said. “And although they’re fair, they’re challenging, with a variety of par level holes and water features. The fairways are wide and generous though, and there is a conservative option available on every hole, so that no matter what your level of ability you can get a good game.                                                                                                        

“It’s an honour to be attached to Ramside Golf Club – it will be great for my development and I’m really looking forward to sharing some of my experience with players of all ages and abilities.”

Helen Roseberry, Director of Golf at Ramside Hall Golf Club said: “Wayne is a fantastic ambassador for the sport and for the County of Durham, and he’s a great coach. Players will be able to learn a huge amount from him and if our facilities can help him develop his own game then that would be fantastic.”
