Thank you for visiting lukejoygolf.com
My name is Luke Joy, I am a Touring Golf Professional from Dorset, England.
I’am attached at Remedy Oak Golf Club and Yas Links, Abu Dhabi
This year I will be competing on The European Tour, Sunshine Tour ( South Africa) and MENA Golf Tour (Middle East).
I started playing golf at the age of 13 at Canford Magna Golf Club and during my amateur days as I progressed in ability I was selected to represent the Dorset men’s first team, South west Men’s Team and England Juniors.
My next step took me to America where I attended University and studied a Business Management Degree at Drake University on a Golf Scholarship. I spent 5 years out in America 4 years studying and 1 year working for Wells Fargo Bank, whilst playing full time amateur golf. I found it to be a great experience, my golf game developed and I learnt a lot about my golf but also myself as an individual!
I turned professional in 2012 off a handicap of +3, and so far I have won 5 tournaments and come close to securing my card on The European Tour through Qualifying School. My performances are improving all the time, I’m working hard to reach my goals, and I’m excited about continuing my progress.
The highlights of my career so far are my 5 professional victories, specifically the two coming on the MENA Tour in the UAE as it lead to my first European Tour start, competing in the 2015 Dubai Desert Classic and then again in 2017.
I have been spending my winters in Abu Dhabi, working on my game at the amazing Yas Links facility, this is the perfect place to be for the winter to keep my game sharp and prepare for the 2017 season. The game is feeling in great shape and can’t wait for the season to kick off and get into the winners circle once again.
Many thanks to my friends, family, and sponsors for all your great support, it’s greatly appreciated and could not do it without you!
I hope you enjoy following my progress via lukejoygolf.com
