AN exclusive golf club has appointed a new director of its two championship courses.

He will now be turning his expertise towards further improving Brocket Hall’s two championship golf courses, clubhouse and golf academy.

“I am delighted to be leading a new and dynamic team that is solely focused upon driving the club forward,” said Peter.

“We have two highly regarded golf courses which I am determined to improve further, one of the best golf academies in the UK which will become the hub of residential and day clinics, accommodation at Melbourne lodge and fabulous additional amenities at the stately home and Michelin-starred restaurant. We have all the ingredients necessary to make Brocket Hall one of the best clubs in the country.”

Peter is married to Barbara who is a teacher and they have nine-year-old twins.

He is a sports enthusiast and a keen golfer with a handicap of two.

He added: “I am really looking forward to putting some roots down in the area.

“I love the villages around here and feel that Hertfordshire is an ideal environment in which to raise my children.

“I am looking forward to making new friends and becoming involved in commnunity life.”
