About Us
Located in Manston on the main road in to Thanet, we are much more than just a driving range. Our 9 hole golf course, The Greensole Course, is a great challenge for all golfers and measures 2479 yards with 6 par 4’s and 3 par 3’s.

Our shop is well stocked with all the latest golf products for everything for your game, in addition we are custom fitting specialists for PING, TaylorMade, Cleveland, Lynx, Callaway, Srixon, Titleist and Yonex. Our fitting suite is fitted with the latest FlightScope launch monitor technology and a session in our bespoke fitting bay will definitely help you to get the best equipment for your game.

Our driving range is regularly described as the best in Kent, it features the latest TrueStrike mats, Srixon balls and a superb outfield to hit to – as well as a grass tee and a short game area.

At Manston we are delighted to be host to the Total Golf Academy featuring a team of top quality coaches utilising the latest C-Swing video technology and Flightscope launch monitor.

Our Tenth Café Bar opened in 2016 and is fully licensed and offers a great choice of hot and cold food – the gourmet burgers are not to be missed. There is also an outdoor decking area and added in 2017 an upstairs seating area offering stunning views. We pride ourselves on being the ultimate family friendly venue and welcome all ages to our junior classes. Added to the centre in 2015 was our Rascal Bay Adventure Golf Course, great fun for all of the family and regularly described as the best adventure golf course people have played – it has to be played to be believed.


Keely Chiericato - PGA Professional Level 2
Keely's coaching method is to appeal to how the player learns best, so use drills that can be replicated either at home or the range. She also incorporates video analysis into her sessions to allow players to view their correct position and be able to repeat it. During all of her lessons, she makes sure she doesn't over complicate things. She has a large clientele of ladies that she coaches, and also specialises in coaching juniors, although she is happy to work with anybody who is looking to improve their game. She has been coaching for 6 years, and competes regularly on a variety of professional circuits and has a long term ambition to play full time.


John Brotherton - PGA Professional Level 2
John started playing golf at the age of 12 at Lullingstone Park Golf Course near Swanley, Kent. In 1972 he started his PGA training there, passing his PGA exams 3 years later. He then spent 2 years as a coaching professional at Ruxley Driving Range. From there he was Shop Manager at Hawkhurst Golf & Country Club for 1 year before moving on to his first Head Professional position at Chestfield Golf, which he held for 30 years before leaving in July 2009. From 2009-2011 he was a freelance coaching professional at Boughton Golf Club. Due to a back problem, John changed from playing from right to left-handed so has unique experience in both sides. He would be the natural choice for our left-handed clients a well as our right handers. John's style of coaching is to make his lessons relaxed, interactive, informative and fun! This makes his approach simple to understand, easy to progress, quick to see improvements, and as a man who understands the strains of golf on your body, he makes maximum use of the body's natural movements wherever possible. He particularly specialises in the intricacies of the short game, and putting.


Max Brackley - PGA Professional Level 2
Turned professional in 2005, played the Alpstour, Europro Tour. Member of the challenge tour 2012, competed in the UK longdrive championship finishing 4th. Won various regional and county events and pro ams over the last ten years. In 2015 I won the Titleist and FootJoy winter series order of merit winning 2 events and 6 top tens out of the 8 events. I believe in using technology to help golfers perform better and enjoy the game more.


Gavin Webb - PGA Professional
Gavin turned professional in 2017 after enjoyed a successful amateur career. He has already made quite an impact having enjoyed a successful start paying on the South Region and County circuits as well as building up a strong coaching reputation.
