A MILTON Keynes golf centre has appointed a new head PGA professional and charged him with expanding the retail side of the business.

Steve Brown, 38, pictured, has taken over the reins at Abbey Hill Golf Centre, which is part of Burhill Golf & Leisure.

Steve has a wealth of commercial expertise to bring to the public pay-and-play centre, having previously managed large golf retail chains and set up numerous pro shops around the south of the country. He will also be managing the centre’s golf academy.

He said: “Abbey Hill is a fantastic venue with two great courses and excellent practice facilities. I want to further grow the retail side of the business and develop it into a first-class outlet.”

Gordon Forster, Abbey Hill Golf Centre general manager, welcomed Steve to the venue’s stable of six PGA professionals.
