John Dent - Director of Golf
I am originally from Leeds and started my career as an assistant pro at The Alwoodley Golf Club. After becoming qualified in 1996 I went to work in Istanbul Turkey as the head teaching pro at Kemer Golf and Country Club. After spending 7 years in Istanbul I became the Director of Golf at the PGA National Antalya golf club we hosted many world class events including the first European tour event with Tiger and Rory playing. We also held the world amateur championship the Eisenhower Trophy. After spending 14 years in the role we decided to move closer to the UK and I have now become the Director of Golf at the beautiful La Grande Mare golf resort.


Alex Murrell - PGA Teaching Professional
Started playing the game aged 14 and was down to scratch by 16 before turning pro off +2 aged 22. I progressed through County teams being the fastest person to win my county colours ever, other amateur highlights were the England Squad and winning the Sir Nick Faldo Championship when 18yrs old, resulting in a week in America with him. Since turning pro I have been heavily involved in teaching amateurs and Professionals alike. I started off with the Juniors at my home club in Cumbria before moving to the County U-18 side. From here I moved to Antalya Golf Club in Turkey to work alongside John Dent. Teaching and looking after 3 retail spaces with over 450 golfers a day passing through has given me the experience that I delighted to bring to La Grande Mare now!
