The addition of Ian Howieson, the former Head professional of the Royal Automobile Club with 37 years experience in a variety of professional roles brings a new and exciting dynamic to Clere Golf’s presence north of the border.
Clere Golf is now an established brand in the golf industry providing quality collateral and services to clubs, resorts, professionals and brands throughout Europe. With its Head Office in Newbury the business has grown successfully throughout the UK and places a great deal of its success on it’s understanding of clients needs and it’s ability to deliver 1st class service. With this in mind the company recognises the need for local representation particularly in Scotland.
“We had been planning to strengthen our presence in Scotland for some time but it’s so important to find the right person, I’m delighted to have Ian on board, his enthusiasm is infectious whilst his knowledge and understanding of Scotland and Scottish based clubs and resorts is priceless”, says Steve Richardson, Director at Clere Golf.
Now working with over 900 clubs throughout Europe, Clere Golf has with likes of The Belfry, La Manga, Oceânico Golf, The K-Club, Abu Dhabi Golf Club and Stoke Park amongst its client base providing everything from course guides and scorecards to branding and new media solutions.
