Peter Cherry

A transplanted Englishman, Peter began his extraordinary career at the College of Boca Raton, where he graduated in 1988 after being a N.A.I.A. All-American. Over his 35-year career, Peter has held three very prestigious positions at prominent English Clubs: Harpenden GC, Royal Mid-Surrey GC and Ashridge GC, but his passion has always been teaching, which he now practices all the time. Peter has coached an extensive list of competitive golfers including a Walker Cup squad member and has also been the Golf Union County Coach for Hertfordshire. Peter is also an exceptional player and was asked to represent England Schoolboys and has won several PGA Championships and in excess of 60 Pro-Ams. He is the holder of 5 course records, while most recently having qualified for the 2021 Senior British Open Championship. He does not believe that “one size fits all” when teaching the golf swing but works with each student differently and uniquely helping them create “their own” golf swing. Your school with this delightful man (he has a great sense of humor!) will be in all ways, a game changer.

Teaching Philosophy

The great thing about golf is that there are many ways to play it well and I simply work towards helping a golfer return the club head back square to the ball, and on a square path. My mantra is “turn the body and swing the arms”, which is something that I believe is seen in so many of the best players and is crucial to a repetitive and consistent golf swing. And of course, this ideal can only be based around sound and solid fundamentals, thus making the game as easy as can be for any golfer. From my extensive experience, I’ve also found that keeping teaching as simple as possible is a key factor and I always work to ensure any student is fully aware and understanding of what it is I’m asking them to do. And of course, I’ve found that the best results are always achieved within a fun and relaxed atmosphere so that any student can progress at the most effective rate.
