Driving range development business The Bucket Pros have appointed Geertje Miedema as Business Coordinator for Europe as their expansion into Europe continues.

Following the appointment of Andy Gordon, Business Developer, and the success that has resulted in Spain, this appointment marks the next phase of development for The Bucket Pros as they expand their driving range boosting solution throughout Europe. 

Dutch born Miedema, a leading golf industry professional, boasts a wealth of experience in golf, sales, coordination and golf club management, having previously led the team at Lumine Travel, an in-house DMC at Infinitum (previously known as Lumine Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community).

Prior to joining The Bucket Pros, Miedema has enjoyed a successful career within leisure, hospitality and golf. Beginning her employment in reservations, she has progressed quickly owing to her foresight, effectiveness and success. Not only this, Miedema has also travelled extensively and provides an enviable linguistics skill set being able to speak six languages. 

“I am excited to start this new chapter with The Bucket Pros and be part of the expansion into my home country, the Netherlands” said Miedema. “Having worked within a developing resort over the last 10 years I have valuable insight in how facilities are utilised and how integrating new methods can produce beneficial results. My ambition for the coming months is to enhance the profile of The Bucket Pros and bring their expertise to practice facilities and range owners in the Netherlands”. 

Commenting on the appointment, European Sales Director Calle Carlsson said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Geertje to The Bucket Pros team. Having worked with Geertje previously, I know that she will be a great asset to us and be a driving force for our expansion”. 

“Following our success in Spain our European development plan will now look to showcase our expertise to facilities in the Netherlands and help them maximise revenues and realise potential. With Geertje bringing her knowledge, efficiency, and passion I know that we will be successful”. 

Determined to change the concept of the driving range among golfers through a strong focus on new technology, digitalisation and modern design, The Bucket Pros strive to become a one-stop-shop for golf courses and range operators in Europe.
