Appointment of New Professional

20121220-180957.jpgThe General Committee are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Golf Professional, Daryn Cochrane who shall take over this important position within our club effective 1st February 2013.

Daryn, 36 years of age and a current registered AA (T) PGA Professional, joins Elderslie Golf Club with many years of experience as a Golf Professional. During his professional career has served as Head Professional at Virgin Active Golf & Country Club & Hilton Park Golf Club (Milngavie), Bearsden Golf Range, Buchanan Castle Golf Club (Drymen) and Canmore Golf Club (Fife) and also as the Director of Golf at Forrester Park Golf Resort (Essex).

We would hope that all members join us in welcoming Daryn to his new position and that everyone takes time out to introduce themselves and help him to establish a new era for our club.

A few words from Daryn…

I am absolutely thrilled to have been appointed the new PGA Club Professional at Elderslie Golf Club. I am extremely excited about getting started and meeting every member. I will do my best to ensure that your experience at the Golf Club is both a positive and enjoyable one, each and every time you come up. I would be delighted to hear from you if there is anything that you would like to see in the shop or if there is something important that you would appreciate happening at the Club that I can help with. Your feedback is and will continue to be very important to me and my staff, so please don’t hold back!

With the golf course itself being one of the finest in the area already, I am really looking forward to helping to grow the rest of the club. From membership numbers and enjoyment to enhancing your game by hopefully hitting the wee round ball more consistently, I’m here to help. Through the Clubgolf Scotland programme, I hope that we can introduce more kids to the game and swell our junior section numbers. I also want to make sure that all of our members are getting the maximum enjoyment from their time up at the Club, whether that be a friendly ‘hello’ when you pop into the shop or a more in-depth look into your golf swing.

I can’t wait to get started and I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone. I’m very grateful and feel very privileged that I have been appointed as your Club Pro. I hope that we can all share in a fabulous golfing 2013 and I’ve heard a rumour that BBQ’s up and down the West coast are already being polished in anticipation of a glorious Summer!

On behalf of all the members, the General Committee would like to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to Ricky Bowman who has served the Club and its members for many years. We trust that Ricky shall have a long and relaxed retirement.
