Centurion Club in Hertfordshire has appointed Peter Holland as its new Director of Golf.
Opened in 2013 and located just outside St Albans, Centurion Club has quickly gained a reputation as an innovative and progressive club with a stunning course designed by Simon Gidman. The club is regularly included in Top 100 rankings of England, which as a relatively new course, is quite an achievement.
Holland, who is originally from Hertfordshire, has worked at a number of clubs overseas, including Monte Rei Club in Portugal, the Montgomerie and Butch Harmon School of Golf in Dubai, the Velaa Private Island in the Maldives, and most recently Agalarov Estate and Zavidovo PGA National clubs in the Russian Federation.
Commenting on his appointment, Holland said: “It’s great to be back in my home county and working at such a forward thinking club. What has been achieved here in such a short time has been incredible and I’m really looking forward to helping take the club even further in the years to come. We aim to give the members and their guests a superb level of service, so I will be looking to work with the golf ops team to see where we can enhance the golfers experience.”
With a busy summer of tournaments in the calendar, Centurion Club are busy preparing to host professional players from the men’s and ladies tour when they host LIV Golf Invitational and the Aramco Team series in June.
General Manager Michael Duffy added: “Peter joins us at a really exciting time for the club and we are delighted to have someone with his level of experience and knowledge joining the team.”
