Our Staff

Peter Baker - Head PGA Professional

I represented Great Britain & Northern Ireland in the 1985 Walker Cup and was a member of the 1993 European Ryder Cup Team. Since 1986 I have played in over 580 tournaments on the European Tour - winning the Benson & Hedges International in 1988 and, in 1993 won both the Dunhill British Masters and the Volvo Scandinavian Masters. I also Captained England in the 1998 Alfred Dunhill Cup. In addition I was Ian Woosnam's Vice Captain for the victorious 2006 European Ryder Cup Team. I have been involved with South Staffs G.C. for over 30 years. As Head Professional, I aim to use my experience to help both the average club player and gifted low handicapper get the best out of their game and enjoy their golf. In particular I am very proud of South Staffs Golfmark status. We are one of only a very few clubs in Staffordshire to have this Junior Coaching accreditation. As a former junior international, I am aware just how important it is for youngsters to get a good start and to be coached in the right direction if they feel they want to make a living from the game.
