Lenzie Golf club
As you are aware Jim McCallum intimated some time ago he wished to hang up his "Driver". The search for a suitable replacement was held up due to the restrictions caused by Covid. Jim, entirely in character, offered to remain in place until an appointment could be made.
I am now pleased to announce, after the conclusion of the interview process, a new golf Professional for Lenzie Golf Club has been appointed. James McKinnon is the person to succeed our Jim. James McKinnon comes to us from Tulliallan Golf Club where he was the Golf Professional. He has also held sales and marketing positions at leading golf brands and was previously Head Professional at Irvine Golf Club.
James, known as Jim, will join us officially on 15 April 2021 and will work with Jim McCallum over the following two weeks period to ensure as smooth a transition as possible. I will update the membership on James McKinnon's plans to upgrade the professional shop after further discussions with him.
Jim McCallum will therefore officially take leave of Lenzie Golf Club on 30 April 2021. It is a sad moment for us all and one that should be properly recognised. In discussion with Jim it has been agreed he will return for an official farewell once we can fully reopen the clubhouse and enjoy each other's company. I for one cannot wait for that occasion.
In conclusion therefore I say farewell to one Jim and welcome to another Jim.
