Following the resignation of Mike Timson, the Management Committee have undertaken the task of finding suitable replacement. Working closely with the PGA, the committee shortlisted 6 outstanding candidates for interview. Following the interview process, there was unanimous agreement that one of the candidates stood out.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the position of Club Professional was offered to Sarah Walton from Kington Golf Club and that she duly accepted. Sarah has submitted her resignation from Kington GC and will be joining us, with her partner, Chris, on 4th September.
Sarah is a highly experience Professional and is held in extremely high regard within the industry. She was PGA Assistant of the Year in 2013 and was the first female to achieve the PGA Director of Golf qualification.
I have no doubt you will give her and her partner a warm welcome to the club and I am equally sure that Sarah will bring great enthusiasm and drive to the club, and will continue the excellent work that Mike started.
