Allan Todd - Senior Assistant Professional
After working 2 seasons in the Professional Shop at Turnberry, Allan joined the Professional staff at Prestwick in March 2012. Starting out on the 3 year PGA foundation degree programme at the Belfry, Allan completed his studies in August 2015. He graduated in April 2016 and has been a full member of The PGA since then.
Junior Coaching has been a big part of his job at Prestwick since his arrival, in which he still plays an active part in. The junior members from from Prestwick St Cuthbert and Troon Welbeck have benefited from coaching during the Summer months looking at all areas of the game. This has been supported by The Stanley Walker Morrison Charitable Trust for a number of years and provides youngsters with an amazing opportunity to stay in golf and compete at a higher level.
The primary school initiative from Children's Golf Trust has been beneficial in inspiring future golfers in local schools and Allan has provided coaching in various schools across Ayr and Prestwick since 2019. This gives all Primary school children within a school, the opportunity to try golf during school time and for those who wish to continue playing, the local area has opportunities where they can improve and develop within a golf club.
In October 2021, Allan took part in the Virtual London Marathon while raising funds for The Golf Foundation. Raising over ￡3000 for the charity, this was the first time Allan had ran the distance and running has become a new found love off the golf course.
