“I really look forward to continuing my coaching career at Holtye. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It’s a really fun place to teach golf. The golf club has a long history opening in 1893 but you don’t have that stuffy feel that some golf clubs still have. Holtye offers the best of both worlds in that you have the character of an older established golf course in a relaxed informal environment. I’m really excited for the future”
