Scottish Golf has recruited Fraser Munro, a former Ladies European Tour Tournament Director, to the position of Head of Events.
The 38-year-old, above, will oversee the amateur governing body’s new-look events calendar for 2017 as he returns to the world of golf after a spell in banking.
Munro, a member at Kinross Golf Club, boasts 13 years golf industry experience working with the Ladies European Tour and the former Ladies’ Golf Union, achieving a high level of golf administration, management and rules experience.
The three-handicap golfer is an R&A qualified referee and has officiated at more than 100 professional events worldwide, including the Ricoh Women’s British Open and US Women’s Open. He was also responsible for delivering the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open during his time with the Ladies European Tour.
After working in golf from 2003 to 2015, the University of Stirling graduate is now looking forward to heading up the Events team at Scottish Golf after a spell working for Lloyds Banking Group.
“I jumped at the opportunity to return to golf,” said Munro. “I have always had a passion for the game and been proactive in broadening and developing my knowledge and experience at every opportunity.
“There are some exciting changes on the domestic events calendar this year and I look forward to evaluating them all and looking at ways we can further develop the events going forward.”
