Stuart Wilson was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife on February 1976 and grew up in the nearby town of Glenrothes. Although Stuart's family all played golf he didn`t take to the game until the age of 12, but by 18 he had turned Professional and started his Traineeship at Kirkcaldy Golf Club. 4 Years at Kirkcaldy GC were followed by 6 years at Ladybank Golf Club, Fife where he took up the role of Senior Teaching Professional under the guidance of Head Professional, Martin Gray. The reputation he gained as an excellent Instructor open the door to his next move, a Teaching position at The Gleneagles Hotel where in his 4 years there he became Head of Instruction. Although coaching was, and still is, a major passion his desire was always to become a successful Club Professional and in October of 2007 he was appointed Head Professional at The Eastwood Golf Club, Glasgow.

In his time at Eastwood he had established himself and his facility as not only one of the most comprehensive On Course Retail, Improvement and Performance environments in the Glasgow area but has also gained recognition for his efforts from the Industry. In 2010 he was voted “Professional Of The Year” by the Foremost Group and also collected their award for “Marketing Professional Of The Year” in both 2009 and 2012 narrowly missing out on the same award in 2013 having been nominated for the fourth time in five years.

It was those credentials that made Stuart the standout candidate to replace Muriel Thomson as Head Professional here at Portlethen Golf Club in 2015, following Muriel`s well-earned retirement having completed 25 Years of service at the Club.

With well over 20 years experience in the golf industry Stuart is confident that the knowledge, experience and qualifications he has accumulated over that time coupled with the unbiased, honest advice and enthusiasm for the game that he and his staff offer there is no better place to improve and enjoy your game.

He also boasts one of the best equipped On Course Professional Shops in the North East, with a comprehensive range of products and brands coupled with competitive prices and excellent Customer Service.

Stuart says; “Golf is a game for everyone and a game for life! Whether it`s the challenge of learning and improving, the exercise and escape, or the attraction of new technology and fashions, golf gives so much pleasure in many different guises. If you are part of golf enjoy every moment of it, if you are an outsider wondering what all the fuss is about I encourage you to give it a crack……you will love it for whatever reason! Here at Portlethen we have some of the best facilities and technologies around to ensure you get the most enjoyment out of your game!”
