Welcome to Derek Simpson Golf

Advanced PGA Qualified Senior PGA Professional based at The Belfry Hotel & Resort


I turned professional in 1986 and found my true passion for teaching at Gosforth Park Golfing Complex, Northumberland, before moving to The Belfry, prior to the Ryder Cup in 1993.

Since joining The Belfry, I have observed many of the best international golfers and premier coaches in the world, including Butch Harman (coach to Tiger Woods), David Leadbetter (coach to Nick Faldo) and Pete Cowan (coach to European Ryder Cup Team) to name just a few.


I’ve had lessons with Derek over the past 20-years, he has taken my game to another level.
