Spalding Golf Club pro predicts bright future as he moves on
Professional Adam Keogh is predicting a bright future for Spalding Golf Club after deciding to move on to pastures new.
Keogh has been with the Surfleet-based club for the past eight years and became their resident professional in 2017.
He is now joining the Woodhall Spa club which is the headquarters of the English Golf Union and known as the National Golf Centre.
Keogh said: “After eight brilliant years, I have made the difficult decision to leave Spalding Golf Club.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the members, the club and most importantly my colleagues, mentors and friends for their daily help.
“We have made some amazing memories together and the club has an incredibly bright future ahead to which I am sure they will be inundated with applications in searching for my successor.
“I will be joining the team at Woodhall Spa in the coming months and I look forward to what the future holds.”
Keogh has enjoyed a successful spell as Spalding’s professional and during his time at the club scooped both the PGA Lincolnshire and Midlands Professional of the Year crowns.
He has gained recognition in the Midland Order of the Merit and helped to develop the next generation of talent at the club by working closely with the junior section.
Keogh also shattered the course record at nearby Gedney Hill Golf Club in 2019 with a seven-under-par round of 63.
He already shared the previous best with four other players but bettered it by two shots after posting nine birdies in a pro-am event at the club.
The Spalding club is due to reopen its doors on Monday, March 29, following the release of the Governments’s roadmap over the easing of coronavirus restrictions.
