Key Speakers

I retired in October 2022 from almost 30 years lecturing in greenkeeping and golf course management at SRUC Elmwood. I now have more freedom to support golf course management in a different way and now find myself supporting golf clubs and organisations with a variety of golf course and related projects. I have a PhD in the Agricultural Sciences and an MSc in Sport and Society. Away from a career dominated by golf my main interest is cycling, riding around Scotland and overseas, and travelling to watch professional events. I also enjoy being part of a community choir in Cupar where we perform a couple of concerts each year raising money for our nominated charities.
