Get Golfing has confirmed the appointment of Alex Wright as General Manager of Pyrford Lakes Golf Club

Wright will replace outgoing General Manager Daniel Lucking, who has been promoted to Sales Director at the expanding golf course operator.

“I am delighted to be handing the reigns to Alex, whom I’ve been mentoring as my assistant since he came on board April 2021,” commented Lucking. “His promotion is richly deserved and comes at what is an exciting time in our journey. Alex will be tasked with taking the club to the next level in terms of furthering its growing reputation for great golf and service excellence for all who visit.”

After graduating with a degree in Planning, Wright spent his early years as an assistant consultant at a top London practice. However, a deep love for the game of golf led him to consider making his passion his profession. Having decided to follow his heart, Wright researched several industry options before speculatively approaching Get Golfing, the result of which culminated in a job offer at Pyrford Lakes, conveniently Wright’s local course. 

“I remain hugely impressed with Get Golfing’s approach, vision and calibre of its team, not to mention its commitment to developing young talent,” said Wright, 26, who has recently completed the Golf Course Managers Association ‘Principles of Golf Club Management’ course. “It is incredibly refreshing, and I am proud to be part of it. I could not be more excited to be taking on the GM role at this special club.”
