Hearsall Golf Club Pro
Mike Tarn turned Professional in 1975 working at Ascot Hall GC in the North East. He moved to the Midlands at the age of 17 working as an assistant Professional at the Forest of Arden Golf and Country Club for three years before moving to the John Reay Golf Center in Coventry, during this period he also spent time working in Leicester, and Atherstone Golf Club for over 12 months.
During the six years he spent with John Reay Mike became PGA qualified. In 1985 he moved back to the Forst of Arden as Head Professional. Over the following ten years he saw major changes to the course which was changed to European tour Standards to hold two English Opens while he was there.
The old clubhouse was changed to a 150 bedroom hotel with full leisure facilities. In 1994 Mike became the professional at Coventry Hearsall Golf Club. He continued to run the shop at the Forest of Arden until April 1995 concentrating soley on Hearsall Golf Club.
Mike has enjoyed his time at Hearsall and has been very active with all competitions held throughout the years he has been with us. There is only one place that you can purchase items that carry the Coventry Hearsall Golf Club crests and that is direct from the Professional Shop.

Over the years Mike has built up a strong relationship with our members, his expertise and knowledge of the golf swing has helped a large number of people play better golf.
There are a number of classes that Mike holds as well as individual one to one coaching, every Sunday Mike can be seen on the practice area with a dozen or so young aspiring golfers and this is a great opportunity for young people not only to learn the skills of golf but to improve their social aptitude in a safe and supervised environment.
Golf is a disciplined sport and whilst we improve our technique the fun side of golf is paramount in Mike’s structured courses. This leads to a greater fulfillment of the junior and sets them in good stead for the future.
