The John Letters Academy at Cambridge Golf and Conference Centre, Huntingdon, has appointed the centre’s former general manager, Ian Cochrane, as its new director. Cochrane, 54, has worked in the golf industry for 34 years and at the centre for the last 10 years. In his new role he wants to grow the game of golf in the area.
Cochrane, explained, “It will be my responsibility as academy director to deliver the best tuition possible at the John Letters Golf Academy, not just from me but from the whole team. We want to help existing golfers drive down their handicap, and to grow participation in golf within the area, by inspiring all generations, whether existing or new players. Personally, I retain the ambition to be recognised as a world-class golf coach, making the game simpler and more enjoyable for those who make it difficult, and also to try my luck on the European Senior Tour.”
