Duncan Lambert

Duncan has been a PGA Professional for over 25 years and in 1996 was appointed the Head Professional at West Malling Golf Club. In 2010 Duncan earned the coveted PGA Director of Golf qualification. This provided Duncan with even greater skills to manage, market and continually drive the service within the professional shop at West Malling forwards.

“customer service is to meet and exceed customer expectations”.

Although Duncan is no longer taking on teaching responsibilities he can be seen behind a pile of paperwork or on the shop floor where he feels at his best, engaging with customers and staff alike.




Ashley Roberts

Ashley has established himself over his 16 years at West Malling as a teaching Professional who is renowned for taking an inexperienced golfer and coaching them to play golf at more than a very competent level, and nowhere is this more evident than with the number of lady and gent golfers who come to Ashley for tuition. Coaching with the new Hudl sharing app software that allows every lesson to be documented and shared with you has proved a great success for all standards of golfer Ashley teaches and has only helped to enhance his reputation with the single figure players.

Ashley has also managed the ladies retail section at Duncan Lambert Golf since 2000 establishing himself as an expert buyer in the ladies golf market.


Michael Townsend

Michael has over 20 years experience in the golf industry, qualifying as a PGA professional in 1995 gaining vast experience as a teaching professional to golfers of all levels. His 15 years at Duncan Lambert Golf have seen him become a leading figure in the custom fitting of golf clubs, where he can combine his exhaustive knowledge of golf equipment, with the computerised fitting profile of the golf manufactures and his vast expertise of the golf swing .

Callaway Golf have recognised Michaels expertise in this field by awarding him The Callaway 2015 Gold Award for custom fitting. Michael is one of the leading rifle marksmen in the country, so beware!


Tom Probin

Tom started his role as assistant professional in December 2018. He had been an amateur member at West Malling for a number of years before heading off to America and the US College programme to further improve his understanding of golf, the business as well as playing. Tom is currently in year 2 of his P.G.A. Foundation degree.

Tom has a very good knowledge of the golf swing from his degree and his playing background. He’s a very laid back individual and therefore makes even the most nervous golfer very comfortable in no time at all especially the young golfers.



Chris Wood

Chris Wood is one of our sales assistants, he has an expert knowledge of electric trolleys, GPS units and is also trained to perform FootJoy shoe fittings should you be unsure of your size when you visit the shop. 

Chris is a keen amateur golfer, a keen amateur cricketer and an avid supporter of Arsenal FC, two out of three ain’t bad!


Annette Fraser

Annette joined us as a sales assistant in the Spring of 2016 and can generally be found in the ladies section helping our customers choose their perfect outfit. Annette is a very keen and good amateur golfer playing off a handicap of 15 at Mid Kent GC. She is also a keen cyclist and baker, although the latter, even with plenty of hints from us, the quality control on cakes is yet to be tested.
