Surrey-based Ian Timberlake is the latest renowned golf industry figure to join the increasingly influential Golf Consultants Association (GCA).

Timberlake, a director of Timberlake Golf, has more than 20 years’ experience in the golf industry and has an exceptional knowledge of the UK and Ireland market and key industry figures.

He has earned a reputation for maintaining the highest levels of integrity, confidentiality and discretion and is regarded as having one of the largest networks in the business.

His membership is testament to the increased reach and the burgeoning credibility of the GCA and I hope it proves a fruitful decision for him.”
