PGA Master Professional Gary Alliss has left The Belfry; last Saturday was his final day. He officially starts in his new role as the professional at Ladbrook Park Golf Club at Tanworth-in-Arden, near Solihull on 2nd April.

Ladbrook Park is a members club with a 101 year old Harry Shapland Colt course that is almost unaltered since the great man designed it. Matthew Streets from Wetherby recently joined the Club as General Manager.

“I am pleased to be able to go back to what is my first love, being a PGA Club Professional,” said Gary. “I will be doing what a club pro does, teaching, playing, custom fitting, retailing. My assistant will be Ryan Burton from The Belfry and my wife Karen, who did so much when we were at Trevose, will be assisting in the shop.”

At 6,500 yards the course has SSS 72. There is a driving range, a good retail shop, 750 members, with a very active ladies section and 80 junior members.

A spokesman for the club said, “We are sure that the professional services provided by Gary and his team will enhance Ladbrook Park Golf Club’s continued evolvement and complement our shared goal of enhancing our standing as a prominent and well respected members club.”

Gary continues, “The Club is actively encouraging me to continue with my other work for PGA as a swing tutor, PGAsEurope/R&A Golf Development as one of the consultants and as the Slovak National Coach. All in all it is a great opportunity; the right job at the right time for Gary Alliss.”
