St Andrews Links Trust has appointed Euan Grant as Head Greenkeeper in charge of the Old Course, following the recently announced departure of Eddie Adams to a position with The European Tour.
Since joining the Links in June 2002, Euan Grant has been Head Greenkeeper in charge of the New Course. He previously worked as Head Greenkeeper at Marriott Forest of Arden Golf & Country Club in Warwickshire where he was involved in course set up for two English Opens. He also worked on the construction and subsequent management of two 18-hole courses in Surrey.
Highly qualified, Mr Grant received the Toro/PGA Tour Student Greenkeeper of the Year award in 1994. In his two years at the Links he has made a number of improvements to the New Course including the creation of new championship tees to bring the course to over 6700 yards.
“Euan has impressed us with his management skills and dedication,” said Gordon Moir, Links Superintendent at the Links Trust. “We have every confidence that under his management the Old Course will continue to go from strength to strength and to be presented in the traditional way.”
Euan Grant will take up the position on 29th March.
