Matthew Contreras - Pro Shop Supervisor
I am the Pro Shop Supervisor here at Cricket St Thomas Golf Club. I thoroughly enjoy my role and my jobs include running club competitions, handling all club repairs and I help Lisa with the day-to-day running of the Pro Shop. I also enjoy playing Golf, I started as a junior playing at Taunton Vale Golf Club and have continued to play at Cricket St Thomas and Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club. My current Handicap index is 4.9, which I will be working to improve over the coming years. I’d like to think I’m quite an approachable and friendly person and if you have any questions or problems, be that visitors or members, I am always here to help.


Roy Holland - Head PGA Professional
Hello.... I have been a professional golfer for the past 20 years now. I started my career in Portugal where I spent five years at Parque da Floresta in the Western Algarve. I then went on to be the Assistant Professional at Long Ashton Golf Club for 10 years, teaching and competing on the PGA EuroPro Tour, regional PGA events and European Tour School. More recently I have focused on coaching and I was fortunate enough to work with Korean teen sensation Minkyu Kim for a year. Kim became the youngest winner on the PGA EuroPro tour at 16 years of age and last year he went on to become the youngest winner on the European Challenge Tour. I am looking forward to my new role as Head Pro here at Cricket St Thomas , meeting all of the members and becoming part of the team. If you have any golf related queries or would like a lesson please come into the shop and say hello. I will be delighted to meet you and more than happy to offer any advice
