Jonnie Cliff PGA
Originally from Dumfries, Jonnie played amateur golf to +2 handicap. After Completing a Management Degree at Glasgow University Jonnie worked in Marketing until the age of 28 when he had an epiphany and became a Golf Professional. Jonnie wanted to give back to the game that has given him such great pleasure and friendships over the years and help others achieve their golfing goals and get maximum enjoyment from the game.
Taking over as Head Professional at Murrayfield in 2007, Jonnie has worked closely with all levels of golfers from beginner to Tour Professional. 5 of our Juniors have gone on to scholarships in the USA, one of whom won The Scottish Boys Championships and one now playing to +4 and turning pro. However, most of the golfers Jonnie works with are average handicap golfers just trying to make small improvements and get more enjoyment from their game.
Jonnie continually attends PGA courses to gain more knowledge of the game on everything from putting to driving to psychology and fitness.

How Jonnie describes himself:
Firstly I’m a dad and husband, I’m a golf nut and have loved the game since I was 12 years old. I don’t play or exercise nearly enough but still want to improve, and I love having fun and socialising with people.
