Barry Newman - Head Professional

It gives me great pleasure to announce that from the 1st February 2017 Barry Newman will be appointed Head Professional at Newbury & Crookham Golf Club. We sincerely hope that you will support Barry in his new venture. As you can see by Barry’s words below he is extremely excited about his appointment;

‘I’m truly honoured to be appointed Head Golf Professional of Newbury and Crookham Golf Club. Throughout my career I have visualised myself with this club and in this role. I am very proud of our golf course and its history and I hope that this will be reflected in my work for the club.

I am passionate about improving every individual member and guest experience. From an initial welcome to the golf club to helping you to choose the right equipment and lessons.

I plan on making a few changes to the current set up and would love to talk my plans over with you. Please come to the shop anytime on Saturday the 4th of February for Prosecco and nibbles and we can discuss what will be changing in the coming weeks.’

We would like to place on record our thanks to Martin Balfour and his staff for all their hard work over the last 7 Years. Laura Willoughby will maintain her employment with MB Golf at Donnington Valley and James Foster will remain an active member of staff at Newbury & Crookham.

Any member credit balances held at 31st January with MB Golf will be transferred to Barry Newman Golf for members to continue to use as usual. Any loyalty points held with MB Golf must be spent by 31st January or redeemed at Donnington Valley professional shop after this date. Any equipment purchased before 1st February 2017 from MB Golf with warranty issues must be returned to MB Golf at Donnington Valley.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Barry the very best of luck with his new venture.
