Gleneagles has announced the appointment of Alan Pirie to the newly created role of Golf Sales Manager. As part of the 850-acre estate’s ongoing investment programme, Pirie, who boasts more than five years’ experience in senior golf sales roles, will initially focus on driving growth in corporate bookings, alongside the management of Gleneagles’ seven golf membership categories.
Gary Silcock, Director of Golf at Gleneagles, commented: “Alan’s important appointment comes at a time when we are seeing significant growth in corporate, visitor and membership golf on all three 18-hole courses.
“It is an exciting time for the golf team here at Gleneagles – our three championship courses have never looked better and the creation of this new role coincides with the completion of a significant refurbishment programme on the King’s and Queen’s Courses, which has seen them revert back to James Braid’s original design vision.”
Gary added: “Gleneagles prides itself on the experience it gives its golfing customers and supported by the biggest team of golf professionals in Scotland, and a wealth of world-class facilities, including the PGA National Academy, and our Dormy Clubhouse, featuring the all-new Auchterader 70 Bar, our guests are guaranteed a welcoming and warm Scottish experience, second to none.”
