Prestwick golf club PGA Professional wins Top Pro shop National Award.

David Fleming, PGA Professional at Prestwick Golf Club - birthplace of the Open Championship - was presented with the Pro Shop of the Year award by Europe’s leading golf retail services group, the TGI Golf Partnership at its Gala Awards Ceremony in Manchester.

We're delighted to have been working with David and his team over the years on a number of projects and we have just embarked on the redesigning of his online retail store which we are sure will help him to further awards in the future!

David saw off competition from TGI Golf’s 450-plus PGA Professionals from across the continent to scoop the award, finishing ahead of fellow nominees John Heggarty, Head Professional at Royal Liverpool, host of the 2014 Open, and Martin Balfour, from Newbury & Crookham Golf Club.

Held at the four-star Marriott Worsley Park Hotel in Manchester, on February 4, the TGI Golf Partnership Awards Dinner was attended by some of the biggest names in the golf industry, including PGA Chief Executive Sandy Jones.

David’s ‘Pro Shop of the Year’ award was graded on top class shop presentation, excellent customer service, choice of quality products available and attention to detail.

“It’s an honour to receive this prestigious award and fantastic to receive national recognition for what we do,” said David. “This provides us with a benchmark for keeping the standard high going forward. A special thanks to my PGA qualified senior Assistant Nicky Sinclair and PGA trainee assistant Allan Todd for their hard work and dedication in my business”

Eddie Reid, Managing Director of The TGI Golf Partnership, added: “David thoroughly deserves this award for the hard-work and dedication he has shown to ensuring his Pro Shop at Prestwick Golf Club is one of the best in the area.

“Along with his team at the club he has ensured golf club members and visitors have a beautifully laid out shop where they can find the latest products from golf’s top suppliers, as well as knowledgeable and friendly staff to help with any enquiries.”
