Steve Slinger is to leave the Exclusive Golf Group after 12 years’ service to become new general manager at Effingham Golf Club in Surrey.
Slinger has worked in a number of different roles since joining the company in 2002 and played a key part in helping it become one of the most successful and prestigious golfing brands in the south of England.
Slinger took up his current position as general manager of Mannings Heath in January 2007, and assumed responsibility for both clubs as Exclusive Golf’s manager when the group was formed three years later.
Slinger said: “Leaving was naturally a tough decision for me – I have lived and breathed it for 12 years and have some very strong ties with the company, the staff and the memberships. However, it feels like the correct time for me personally and I was drawn to Effingham for a number of reasons.
“I have always loved the history and tradition of the game and, for me, Effingham offers both. This will be the first time in the club’s history that a general manager has been appointed, so that in itself is a significant landmark.
“I’m excited by the opportunity that the role is sure to bring and I’m planning to use my knowledge and experience across my time in golf to help Effingham in the future.”
