More About James

I joined The Essex in July 1995 as a trainee golf professional, based in the club and driving range desk. This was a great opportunity to work in the golfing environment, a game I have played and loved all my life.
In January 2000 I joined the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) as a trainee on the diploma scheme. That same year The Club Company purchased The Essex, which was when my career really kick started.

I was soon promoted to Retail Manager, which was perfect for my attention to detail and kept me customer facing, which is what I enjoy most. This naturally allowed me to progress to my next promotion as Golf Operations Manager. This gave me the chance of running a team as well as the financial responsibility of working to budgets.

In September 2004, I was promoted to General Manager at Benton Hall. At the time it was only a golf club so was the perfect place to “cut my teeth”. Within a year, work had commenced on the country club. This was an amazing experience from seeing the building coming out of the ground to pre-selling memberships and recruiting a new team. The icing on the cake was winning the Flame award at the National Health & Fitness awards. We were the first club in the group to do so and followed it up only a year later with another win!

From here I moved north to The Tytherington Club as General Manager in early 2009. This was a different challenge as it was an established club that had recently had a large investment. I could not have enjoyed it more! Living and working in a different area opened my eyes, and I quickly learnt that different areas have different requirements!

My 2 ½ years there flew by and before I knew it I was back at The Essex, the place where it all began, but this time as General Manager. This was a different challenge once again with a large Tennis Club and the small matter of a 42 bedroom hotel!

On the move again. In November 2015 I was appointed General Manager at Nizels Golf and Country Club where my efforts will continue to make the club one of the best in the country.
