Simon Barratt
Commercial Sales Manager

When did you start working with Club Systems?
I joined the company way back in 2001

Have you always been Commercial Sales Manager?
I started at Club Systems in the Support Team and progressed to become Deputy Manager 5 years later. I enjoyed helping clubs make the best use of the software, so I applied and was offered the Account Manager role to look after golf clubs from Cumbria down to north of Birmingham as well as North Wales too.

After a company restructure 10 years later, I was made the Regional Sales Manager for the same area and over time looked after the whole of the New Business sales at the company.

In the last 6/8 months I have taken on the role as Commercial Sales Manager looking after the day to day running of the Sales Executive Team.

Are you a golfer?
I play golf at Halesowen Golf Club in the West Midlands and have a handicap in the 20’s. Now my young family are growing up and I’ve knocked football on the head, I’m hoping to reduce my handicap to the teens in the near future. Anyone offering lessons I’ll be there!

What is your favourite golf course?
Formby Golf Club

What ruins your round?
Slow play and chipping

Who would be in your perfect fourball?
Pep Guardiola, Rory McIlroy, Bill Murray
