Tim Gilpin has been appointed to the new position of General Manager at Walmley Golf Club, the highly regarded private members club in Sutton Coldfield.
Tim joins from Heythrop Park Resort where he was General Manager. He was previously with DeVere, where he had been Director of Golf and Leisure at WokefieldPark since 2010.
He has extensive experience in golf management, having entered that career path after qualifying as a PGA professional at Tenby Golf Club in South Wales.
He then moved to the Channel Islands to be First Assistant Professional at La Moye Golf Club in Jersey where his members included Nigel Mansell and Ian Woosnam. Tim also managed the Jersey Golf Team which competed against island teams from around the world in the prestigious Island Games.
After leaving La Moye, Tim went to The Club at Mapledurham first as Golf Operations Manager and then as Deputy General Manager.
In addition to his golfing prowess, Tim is a keen sportsman who has completed seven half marathons. He is also a fan of rugby and currently supports Liverpool Football Club, though he might be persuaded to switch his allegiance to a more local side!
Tim’s golfing highlight has been playing in an overseas Pro-Am at TPC Sawgrass.
He says he is very much looking forward to his new challenge at Walmley and meeting up with other staff and with all members of the club during the first week in March.
Chairman Andy Mitchell said “Tim has an excellent record of managerial and commercial success in his previous roles and we look forward to him helping Walmley Golf Club grow and prosper in the future. I know he will receive a warm welcome from all at the club.”
