Gary and Emma Booth met in 2007 while undertaking their P.G.A training at Royal Winchester Golf Club. They soon became best friends and from there fell madly in love. They married in May 2014 in Gary’s home village of Overton in front of family and friends. They feel very lucky to have the shared passion of golf and truly privileged to pursue it as a career together.

Gary Booth - PGA Professional
Gary wants to live in a world where Southampton Football Club are in the Champions League, Bradley Wiggins is his Sunday morning cycling partner and it’s warm enough to always play golf in a short sleeved shirt. From his first swing with a club it was clear that Gary had a talent for golf and by the age of 14 he had attained a 3 handicap. He enjoyed a wonderful amateur career competing in top-level amateur golf competitions all over the country. As a technically minded individual he has always kept up to date with the scientific advances in golf equipment. It was this interest that led him into undertaking the P.G.A training and becoming a club fitter and coach. When he’s not dispensing his golfing knowledge, you can find him at St Mary’s Stadium cheering on Saints or out on his brand new road bike. He also enjoys the odd game of golf with his lovely wife, Emma. If you would like to book a lesson with Gary, please call: 07540926153 or for further enquiries email: garyb@winchestergolf.co.uk
