James Erskine is Head Professional at Dumfries and County Golf Club. James qualified with distinction in coaching from the PGA in 2005 and has competed regularly on the Tartan Tour with four professional wins to date. However, his main focus is developing the sport in the region he grew up in.

James has been involved in the development in junior golf across Dumfries and Galloway from grass roots to performance level for the last 10 years and is the current coach to the South of Scotland, Dumfriesshire, Wigtownshire & Galloway Ladies golf associations. He currently coaches a large proportion of the region’s top players at all levels, including both Senior & Junior South of Scotland champions.

He has been passionate about coaching since 2001, during this time he has worked with a variety of golfers from beginners to Professional golfers.

In 2012, James began a new role as Performance/Development Coach for Scottish Golf and has been working with junior and senior International golfers. He has had notable success with many players winning, county, club and National titles. James's coaching ability has been recognised by being listed in the top 100 coaches in the UK and Ireland by Golf World Magazine.

His philosophy is simple; that there is a better player in everyone and that every player should be treated as an individual. James combines the best of what he has learned with a fun, simplistic and individualised structure leading to long term player development through increased self-awareness.
