The appointment of former amateur champion Stuart Wilson as its new Executive Secretary has been confirmed by BLAIRGOWRIE Golf Club.
From a similar post at his home club, Forfar, he joins the Perthshire club and takes up his place in January, succeeding Steven Morgan.
The 43-year-old man in the family is a well-known and respected Scottish golf figure.
During a distinguished playing career that included international GB&I honours, Stuart, who is a member of the R&A, won the 2004 Amateur Championship.
He was a member of the selection committee of the R&A boys and captained the junior Ryder Cup team in 2012 and in 2014 at Blairgowrie again.
In the 48th Walker Cup, which will take place next year at Seminole in Florida, and at the St Andrews Trophy in 2022, Stuart will captain the GB&I men’s team.
Many Blairgowrie members recall Stuart from his time with us as an assistant professional.
Club Captain Peter Inglis accepted the nomination, commenting, “Stuart will bring a wealth of experience to the full spectrum of experience.”
Activities expected by a modern golf club manager, who has had a very good career at Forfar.
Stuart is looking forward to the new challenge very much.
He said, “Blairgowrie Golf Club is a place with which I have a great relationship and I look forward to returning to the position of Executive Secretary.”
“There are excellent facilities at the club, some of the finest in Scotland.
It will be a pleasure to welcome golfers from close and far to the wonderful experience provided by Blairgowrie.
At the same time, I look forward to serving members to the best of my ability to make sure that on every visit they thoroughly appreciate the experience.
“I would like to thank the club for providing me with this opportunity and I enthusiastically await my start date.”
