Craig Lewis, PGA 

Craig has taken over the role as Head Professional from 1st November 2023.

Craig’s passion for golf began at an early age as a junior member in Greystones Golf Club. With excellent support and mentoring he developed and progressed his skillset, culminating in playing in the German Junior Masters, finishing 11th among the best junior golfers globally.

Craig’s golfing conquests came thick and fast as a Leinster Interclub and Schools Champion, Wicklow Boys Champion and Leinster Golf panellist. His success as a junior ignited a desire to pursue golf as a career path.

Craig began his Professional career as an Assistant Professional to Club Professional Karl Holmes in Greystones Golf Club. He completed his formal studies with the University of Birmingham in association with the Belfry U.K and the Professional Golfers Association.

Head Professional & Coaching Career to date
In 2012 upon finishing his studies Craig took on the job as Club Professional in Woodenbridge Golf Club, Avoca. From the onset Craig wanted to develop golf there and took on the junior section leading them to their first Leinster Final. Craig’s keen interest in coaching did not end with juniors as he began developing his own skillset as a coach improving his service to his expanding client base. Craig then became AAT Professional as a result of his Continued Professional Development.

In 2018 Craig gained the title of Development Coach with Leinster Golf, in which he aided in the development and search for Leinster’s most talented junior golfers. Working alongside some of the best coaches in Ireland, Craig gained valuable experience.
