The London Golf Club has appointed the former the director of operations at Troon Golf, Stephen Follett, as its new chief executive with immediate effect.
Stephen Follett, who was also director of golf for Marriott Golf, said: “It’s a privilege to have been appointed chief executive at the London Golf Club. The club is a prestigious venue of international importance, and as a recognised European Tour Destination, I’m looking forward to being a part of its growth on both the national international stage.”
Hailed as one of the country’s finest golfing venues, the London Golf Club features two championship courses, The Heritage and The International. The Heritage is a classic Jack Nicklaus course which forces you to consider every shot and makes the round both challenging and memorable. Likewise, The International is one of the finest downland courses in England, punctuated with exciting risk and reward tee shots throughout. Both courses have a rich tournament pedigree and have played host to the European Open in 2008 and 2009, the Volvo World Match Play Championship in 2014, and this year’s Brabazon Trophy.
Charles Fairweather, chairman of the London Golf Club, added: “Stephen joins us with a wealth of experience that will be invaluable to the progression of the London Golf Club. We have gone from strength to strength over the years, and we’re sure that Stephen’s arrival will be a catalyst for even more exciting developments at the club in the future.”
