When did you start working with Club Systems?
I started at Club Systems in August 2018, following 5.5 years as Golf Co-Ordinator at Caldy Golf Club on the Wirral.
Have you always been Northern Account Sales Executive?
Yes, whilst there has been a bit of a title/role change since the recent takeover from ClearCourse, I have always looked after the North of England and North Wales.
Are you a golfer?
I try to be. My handicap index is currently 3.0 but last week I was a missed short putt away from getting down to 1.4! I'm currently heading pretty quickly in the wrong direction due to really struggling on the greens. My putting used to be the best part of my game. Now it is easily the "area for improvement"! I am renowned around my home club for hitting a driver off the deck which a lot of people find very odd.
What is your favourite golf course?
That is a really tough question. In the UK, that I have played, it has to be Hillside for me. Ganton and Formby are very close behind. Outside of the UK, I have been lucky enough to play a few courses but my favourite (not neccessarily the best) would have to be Orange County National in Orlando. Other notable names would be Harbour Town, The Gary Player Course at Sun City and The Earth Course in Dubai. But, the dream is to play Augusta. I've always said it is number 1 on my life bucket list and I would empty my bank account and start again for the chance to play there (much to my wife's annoyance)!
You can invite 3 people to join you for a round of golf, who is coming?
Again, a very tough one, so I'm going to cheat. Firstly, are the people close to me who are no longer with us. That would be my Great Uncle Roy, Great Uncle Ray and my father in law Bern. Secondly, would be my celebrity 4 ball. That would be Tiger Woods, Andy Robertson (LFC) and James Acaster. A golf lesson with a lot of laughs!
Tell us something about yourself that we probably don't know?
I have represented Europe twice as part of the Virgin Atlantic Golf League Finals. I captained the team in 2016. I have also represented England at Speedminton, a little known sport that was around for a couple of years around 2010.
