The Professional – Darren Charlton

Before turning Professional in 1991, I was a member at DDGC where I was lucky enough to represent the club at all county levels before winning the county championships in 1990. I am also proud of the fact that I was fortunate enough to win the DDGC club championship five times from 1986-90.

I have achieved a few notable successes during my playing career as a Professional including:

  • Qualifying to play at Wentworth in the BMW PGA European Tour event 2006
  • East Region Order of Merit winner in 2005 and 2015
  • East Anglian Open Champion in 2006 and 2008
  • Beds and Cambs PGA Professional Champion 2004, 2005, 2006,2008,2010.
  • 2003 European Tour Qualifying School Stage 1 winner
  • Multiple East Region PGA Pro Am wins

Course records: South Herts 63 (-9) 2008
