Gainsborough Golf Club has announced that two golf industry experts have recently taken up senior management roles at the popular Lincolnshire Golf Club.

Martin Robinson has been appointed as the new General Manager of the 36-hole facility which is owned and operated by leading club manufacturer PING and is home of the prestigious annual PING Women’s Four Ball Better Ball tournament run in tandem with England Golf.

Robinson was born in Hertford and brought up in the Northwest and has 14 years of experience working in golf club management at Marsden Park, Kirkby Lonsdale and Caversham Heath. He is also a qualified PGA coach and plays off a handicap of two.

Greg Skinner has taken over as Course Manager at Gainsborough having previously spent eleven years working in a variety of greenkeeping roles at Lingdale, The Belfry and Forest Hill. He comes from Leicester and like Robinson is a keen golfer and currently holds down a handicap of eleven.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of two such experienced industry experts and feel sure that both Martin and Greg will play a significant role in the future development of Gainsborough Golf Club,” said John Clark, Managing Director of PING Europe.

“The Club is very popular among golfers in the area and with Martin and Greg on board we look forward to enhancing its reputation further afield.”

Gainsborough Golf Club features two 18-hole courses – Karsten Lakes and Thonock Park – as well as an extensive clubhouse with facilities for conferences, weddings, christenings and other social events. It is also the home of the state-of-the-art PING Golf Academy where golfers from all over the country come to be custom-fitted for PING clubs.
