John Parkinson

PGA Professional & Trackman Master

My Story

My passion for the game of golf started at an early age with one of my first memories watching Seve Ballesteros win the 1979 British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. In 1995 I was very fortunate to complete my PGA apprenticeship under the guidance of Master Professional Peter Cowen. I have begun my tenure as a professional at Donau Golf Club in Passau (Germany) in 1996 and in 2001 I became a head professional at the same club. Since then I have been working on developing the club’s golf academy and improving my own skills to keep up with modern training methods. Over the last decade I have gained three additional qualifications: Trackman University Master; Harold Swash Accredited Instructor – Level 2; Mind Factor certification. I am passionate about golf and enjoy helping golfers of all levels to achieve their goals.
