Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Freeman as its new Head Greenkeeper. Simon will oversee all day-to-day golf operations at the resort’s U.K. Top-100 seaside links course. Having worked most recently at The Machrie, he brings more than 15 years of turf management experience at championship courses to The Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club.
“I am delighted to be joining the team at Machrihanish Dunes and look forward to focusing my energies on maintaining and, where possible, improving this magnificent golf course. I particularly look forward to mastering the challenges of working on the West Coast with its alkaline sand and extreme winter weather,” said Freeman.
“Simon brings a wealth of experience in golf course turf management that will continue to improve the experience for our golf club members and resort guests at Machrihanish Dunes,” said David Southworth, CEO and Founder of Southworth Development, an affiliate of which owns Machrihanish Dunes. “We look forward to Simon and his family moving to Campbeltown and joining the team.”
