Matthew Ombler

Assistant PGA Professional

What did you study during your time with us?
I was studying BTEC Sport.

If you had to sum your experience up in three words, what would they be?
Fun, friendly and enjoyable.

What did you enjoy most about your time at Wilberforce?
The teachers – they were great. They always kept me motivated and made college an enjoyable place to be.

Where are you now?
I’m now a PGA Assistant Golf Pro at Ganstead Park Golf Club. I’m studying at Birmingham University doing Golf Business and PGA. I previously studied Sports Health and Exercise Science at Hull University.

How did your study at Wilberforce help you to achieve your career goals?
Without my qualifications from Wilberforce, I wouldn’t have been able to attend University and would’ve struggled to get a place at Birmingham University and not be able to become a PGA Assistant Pro.

What does the future hold?
Hopefully to become a fully qualified PGA Pro and become Head Pro at a golf club. I’d like to run my own golf shop and business and also teach pupils how to play golf and play in professional tournaments.
