Fraser Cromarty has made a big switch in the Highlands to become Nairn Golf Club’s new Chief Executive Officer. Cromarty has left his role as sales and marketing director at Castle Stuart after seven years to take up his new position.
The club is hoping his extensive experience in club development and promoting the Highlands as a golfing destination will be helpful in creating further success at Nairn.
Cromarty played a big role in the formation of Highland Golf Links, which he now chairs, as golf and accommodation organisations came together to promote destination breaks to the area.
He said: “I have had a wonderful time at Castle Stuart and it was a privilege to be involved in the early development of such a great golf course, while being involved in such a major, international event as the Scottish Open was truly memorable.
“I am now looking forward to a new challenge at a historic and renowned club and to continue to work in developing golf and tourism in the Highlands.”
Malcolm Jones, captain of Nairn Golf Club, said: I’m delighted to announce that Fraser has agreed to become our new CEO. He is very well known and widely respected in the golfing world and has a wealth of management and financial experience under his belt.
“During his time at Castle Stuart he has demonstrated an acute knowledge of the golf industry. We are sure that all the members will wish Fraser all the best and offer him every support in his new role. His appointment is an exciting one and gives the Nairn Golf Club increased reason to be very optimistic about the future.”
Stuart McColm, general manager at Castle Stuart Golf Links, added: “It is always difficult to lose a key member of your management team and we are extremely sad to see Fraser go. However, we are delighted for him and by taking up this new role it means that together we can continue to strengthen our close working relationship with Nairn Golf Club for the benefit of the Highlands as a whole.”
