I am married to Emma and we have three boys called Joseph, Leo and Seth. I have lived in and around the Wrexham area all my life and played most of my amateur golf at Clays Golf Club.
I turned professional in 2003 and became a fully qualified PGA professional in 2006 when I won the title of ‘PGA Assistant of the Year’.

Feedback from the players I coach
“Gareth James has taught my son Matthew since 2012. Through his elite junior coaching plan he has taken Matthew from a promising junior golfer through to an elite boys International. Gareth’s coaching knowledge and ability to inspire the young junior golfer and get them to reach their potential at all levels is second to none. He is a key part of Matthew’s success and is highly recommended for all keen young golfer.”
“Since I started regular coaching with Gareth I have seen rapid improvements in all aspects of my game. Gareth has taken me from a 14 to a 1 handicap and a welsh international in the last two years whilst making the sessions entertaining and always bringing out the best in me. He has been a fundamental part of my planning, progress and development.”
