Nairn Dunbar Golf Club has recently appointed a new club manager to take charge of their championship links nestling on the shores of the Moray Firth in the Scottish Highlands.
Dr Rob Macpherson, who hails from the area and whose family lives in the town, was a member of the club from 1977-2008 and learned his golf over the impressive seaside links. Previously Director of Golf Studies at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Dornoch, Rob is also involved in the management of Scottish, British and EuropeanUniversity golf (and will manage the Great Britain team in the World University Championships at Crans-Montana, Switzerland in June 2014).
Rob, who is keen to take the club forward into the new season, said: “Managing Nairn Dunbar is a life-long dream. As a junior member, I spent hours during the long summer holidays practicing my golf and generally being a nuisance in and around the clubhouse and the putting green. Returning to Nairn Dunbar, and greeting members old and new, has been great fun. The club does a magnificent job for its members, and the town, and I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead”.
Nairn Dunbar’s 6,800 yard course has an enviable reputation, having hosted the Senior Home Internationals (2002), the Scottish Boys Strokeplay (1999 & 2011), the Scottish Ladies Strokeplay (2009) and the British Amateur (1994). Founded in 1899 for the artisans of the town, the club celebrates its 115th birthday on 24th May 2014.
