With previous club professional, Alan Rankin, departing County Armagh Golf Club after a quarter of a century of dedicated service, the early months of 2017 represented a crucial period for the club as it sought a replacement to take on arguably the most important role in the organisation.
An appointment panel headed up by Richard Black, the professional convenor, worked tirelessly to do exactly that and eventually decided that Holywood native Will Carey was just the man for the job.
Having plied his trade at prestigious golf clubs such as Belvoir Park, Citywest and Shandon Park, Carey brings a wealth of valuable experience to County Armagh. No one who has been at the club since he took up post in April could have failed to notice the ‘new broom' factor as the energetic new professional strives to stamp his mark on the place.
In this brief interview, we try to get to know Will a little better, discussing his career to date, his hopes for County Armagh Golf Club, his life away from the course and, first, his beginnings in the game of golf.
Captain Richard Stewart and Lady Captain Gail Steed welcome our new professional, Will Carey, to County Armagh Golf Club.
