Background

Experience

Golf Services Executive

Old Course Experience
– Present (4 years)

Golf season (April-October) – This role covers a wide variety of responsibilities to be undertaken daily throughout the season. These include arranging or directly supplying transport for clients between airports and transfers for the different golf courses during their stay. I am the first point of contact for any client enquiries, and I liaise with the St Andrews golf courses and hotels to arrange accommodation and dinner reservations. I manage the distribution of wholesale tee-time paperwork to tour operators and ensure that all clients are fully informed and catered for throughout. The nature of the position requires lots of adaptability and on-the-spot problem-solving that I very much enjoy.

Off-season (November-March) – I am responsible for the company’s marketing and promotions via social media. I also liaise with our central marketing office to produce and design marketing layouts, utilising Adobe InDesign. The remainder of this time is largely spent planning the logistics and securing the bookings for the season ahead.
