EAST Neuk golfer David Snodgrass has joined the team at Crail Golfing Society as assistant professional.

David (23), who qualified in 2012 as a class A member of the Professional Golfers’ Association, will assist Crail’s head pro Graeme Lennie, a former captain of the PGA in Scotland.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing the courses at Crail, so I’m really pleased to be working here,” said David, of Pittenweem, pictured right with Graeme.

“To be at a club that is so well known throughout the world, with a long history, large membership and a terrific number of visitors, is a real step up.”

Graeme, the Society’s professional for over 25 years, said he was delighted to welcome David on board, as he would provide a valuable boost to services such as teaching and retail operations.

Joining the PGA in 2008, David passed his exams with flying colours, with coaching as his best subject.

“I really enjoy the teaching side and I am especially looking forward to helping out with the juniors” said David.

“Seeing the youngsters making progress is really gratifying.”

Crail Golfing Society is the seventh oldest golf club in the world, with a worldwide membership of 1200 and 10,000 visitor rounds each year on its two courses.
