Education City Golf Club (ECGC) is proud to announce and welcome a new member to their coaching team – Alex Day.

As the demand for golf and coaching increases in Doha, ECGC has once again expanded its team to keep up with the demand.

Introducing Alex Day

Alex first got into golf in his hometown of Lichfield in the UK. As his passion for the game grew, he went on to represent his county at all levels, and after graduating from Gloucester University in 2001, decided to join the professional team at the Belfry. In 2005, Alex successfully completed his PGA studies achieving distinction grades in golf coaching and swing theory.

Whilst working at the Belfry, Alex gained a depth of knowledge and understanding from a variety of sources including the European Tours leading coaches.

His first move overseas came in 2010 where he helped develop the first green golf course in Muscat, Oman. Following this, he managed and established an academy to create a pathway from the junior programme to the National Squad. After four years in the Middle East, he moved to Russia where he supported the development of another prestigious club and secured the first PGA education programme at Zavidovo PGA National.

More recently Alex was appointed by IMG Golf Services for the development of its academy at Dreamland Golf Club in Baku, Azerbaijan. Here he helped set the strategic direction for the growth of the game and was successful in coaching Azeris into representing club and country at international amateur tournaments.

Alex firmly believes in offering a holistic approach to his coaching. He has achieved ‘advanced’ PGA status, is TPI level 2 certified and continually attends coaching conferences to further his knowledge and professional development. He has worked successfully with complete novices through to tour professionals.

According to ECGC Head Golf Professional Anthony Caira, it is fantastic to have an additional PGA qualified professional join the club with his extensive knowledge and experience as they aim to grow the game of golf in Qatar.

We welcome Alex to our new team at Education City Golf Club and wish him every success in his role.
