The Grove has appointed Tom Minshull as its new Head PGA Golf Professional. Minshull, from Preston, Lancashire, moves to the luxury Hertfordshire resort from Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland. Prior to this, he was an assistant professional at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland.

The 30-year-old graduated as a PGA Professional in 2013, and has since gone on to further his education by enrolling in the PGA’s Advanced Certificate in Golf Studies and PGA Director of Golf Certification.

Minshull will oversee a team of five PGA Professionals at The Grove, taking day-to-day responsibility for managing the recently enhanced Golf Shop and leading the venue’s busy tuition programmes, including the unique Tour Truck Experience, launched in 2018.

Anna Darnell, Director of Golf and Leisure at The Grove, commented: “Tom’s energy, enthusiasm and commercially astute attitude will be hugely valuable to our golf management team. His retail experience, custom-fit knowledge and ability to develop engaging player development programmes will help us as we continue to expand our golf business over the coming years.”

Minshull said: “The Grove is one of the finest leisure experiences in the UK and to be part of its golf management team was an opportunity I could not resist. I am looking forward to working within a group of very talented PGA professionals, who together, have an unbelievable platform to deliver a world class golfing experience.”
