Welcome to James Wright our new Professional
Market Drayton Golf Club has welcomed their New Professional, James Wright, who joined the club at the end of May. James was previously the Professional at the Staffordshire Golf Club and comes with considerable experience and knowledge of the modern role of a golf club professional. Commenting on the new appointment, Club Captain Stuart Smith said “We were overwhelmed by the interest shown in the vacancy that arose earlier this year, with over 30 applicants of such a high quality. James was an outstanding candidate and we look forward to him bringing forward a whole range of new initiatives for the club”.
Already, James has encouraged the club to introduce a reduced-price “Twilight Golf” offering for those only able to play later in the day. He is also keen to offer coaching sessions for Members and non-Members alike. The first major event that he will be overseeing will be a “Family Fun Day” scheduled for Saturday afternoon, July 9th, where a range of activities will be on hand to encourage new participants into the sport.
For more information about Twilight Golf or about the Family Fun Day, contact the Club Secretary Jill Mills on 01630 652266 (option 1) or contact James Wright directly on the same number (option 2).Amongst the brands that James will be marketing are Nike, Footjoy, Titelist and Ping. He will also be offering club fitting utilising Flightscope and Tomi Putt Lab equipment. James will also be able to increase or decrease the loft of a club using a Loftline machine, as well as performing general club repairs.
James is a member of one of the the major buying groups and he will match any price offered by major suppliers but will provide a much better service.
We wish James a long and happy career at our club.
