Teaching Professional AAT - Miles Harding
I qualified in 1988 after being the assistant at Sene Valley and later at Rowlands Castle where I was a junior member and still regularly lose a fiver on a Friday afternoon!
The AAT is a classification from the PGA, it means I am a qualified advanced professional who has a Trainee doing their 4 year PGA Degree course.
All my family played golf. The biggest influence on my golf was my father, who has been an assistant at Sunningdale when he was younger. For the last 17 years I have lived in Horndean with my wife Sarah and 15 year old daughter Polly.
