Brad Oliver,

Assistant Golf Professional

Brad Oliver’s journey at Bearwood lakes started at the age of 6 where he attended our Sunday coaching sessions. He is a wonderful ambassador for our Junior programmes as he continued through the system and 14 years later, won the Men’s Club Championship.

Brad’s career at the club began in 2015 within our golf operations team and in 2018 he turned professional. He is currently enrolled in the PGA training programme and one of his key focuses is to give back to the Junior academy by working with new members to gain their first official handicaps and develop them into Junior team players.

Alongside his professional development Brad maintains a busy playing schedule representing Bearwood Lakes on the PGA South region; his ultimate goal is to achieve membership of the European Tour.
