Paul has been living in France since graduating from University in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the UK in 1991, and has worked within the Golf industry for 20 of these 26 years.
He has progressed through many golf operational roles, and to venue management, central marketing management, and regional management for chains and group operations.
Before taking his current role with the French Golf Federation as General Manager at Le Golf National in September 2014, Paul was the Managing Director for a network of French Golf Courses called LeClub Golf, owned by NGFGolf (U Golf). Under Paul’s leadership LeClub Golf grew from 45 Golf courses to 120 within the French Network alone,
Paul was brought into Le Golf National four years in advance of France’s hosting of Golf’s greatest team event – The Ryder Cup 2018 – to work with the Federation and prepare the venue both physically and operationally to host the Event and capture every opportunity that will arise. Paul will lead Le Golf National throughout its path of re-positioning, as well as with the creation of a new commercial strategy to accompany its vision of becoming France’s premier golfing facility, and a model for the rest of the French Golf Industry to look up to in 2018 and beyond.
