DEER PARK GOLF CLUB
A former employee of the PGA at Gleneagles has taken up a new role at Deer Park Golf Club after being so impressed with what he saw at the West Lothian venue.
Brian Inglis, who attended this year’s Deer Park Masters as an official from the PGA, recently took up the post as Deer Park’s golf sales manager following the opening of that position within the club.
“Coming from the Central Belt I was always well aware of Deer Park as something of a jewel in the crown for the area, an amazing golf course and a club that is very well run and good at what it does,” said Brian. “I was very impressed with the running of the Masters and having been working at the PGA this season, I knew what it meant to the pros who take part every year. I would call it one of the most ambitious fixtures on the Tartan Tour.”
"It’s a good time to plan ahead after what was a very busy summer" - Brian Inglis
“Together with general manager Stuart Cruickshank, who knows Deer Park like the back of his hand, we feel that we’re in a great position to continue to build up this Golf and Country Club. We are approaching the autumn winter season and it’s a good time to plan ahead after what was a very busy summer.”

In his role, Brian, a former Stirlingshire county player who claims to have played almost 400 of Scotland’s golf courses, will be a point of contact with corporate customers, golf societies and new and existing members, while he will also seek to promote the value in golf club membership.
“I believe I know what today’s golfer is looking for,” he added. “Knowing the area, I know that many keen golfers in Central Scotland are currently not members of any golf club, having perhaps let their membership of other clubs lapse in the past few years. We are very much planning to claim some of this business.”
"We are delighted to welcome Brian to the club" - Stuart Cruickshank
General manager Stuart Cruickshank said: “We are delighted to welcome Brian to the club as he knows the area so well and brings a wealth of experience. My new team has the aim of reminding local golfers that there is real value in being a member of a golf club. You are indeed joining a community and it’s been proven that joining a club enables golfers to play more regularly and improve their skills.”
