BRUNSTON CASTLE Golf Course in Dailly, South Ayrshire, has appointed Cheryl Steven (31) as its new general manager.
Cheryl brings to her new post a wealth of knowledge and experience in the hospitality field. She has worked with several hotel groups, including Friendly Hotels, Choice Hotels, Lochside House Hotel, and Costley & Costley.
Most recently she worked for Swallow Hotels based at the Station Hotel in Ayr, firstly as revenue manager responsible for marketing and tourism. In this post she attended the PGA Golf & Merchandise Show in Toronto in 2004 and Orlando in 2005.
Cheryl was then promoted within Swallow Hotels to Group Conference and Sales Manager for the UK responsible for the Conference, Sales & Marketing for approximately 146 hotels.
This was her last post before taking a break to give birth to her daughter Olivia.
Cheryl has now returned to work, and taken up her new appointment as general manager of Brunston Castle Golf Course.
Speaking about her new post, Cheryl said: “I am very keen and proud to have joined and be part of Brunston Castle Golf Course.
“I have a fantastic team of employees and an excellent golf professional in Stuart Smith, and together we aim to put Brunston Castle Golf Course back on the map as the best parkland golf course in South Ayrshire.
“Hardly anywhere else in the world is there such an abundance of fine courses as those found in Ayrshire – the world-renowned championship links layouts like Prestwick, Turnberry and Royal Troon all spring to mind.
“However, Ayrshire boasts some real hidden gems, one of which being our very own Brunston Castle Golf Course, designed by the legendary golf course architect Donald Steel. Split by the Water of Girvan and sheltered by the rolling South Carrick Hills, our scenic course is speckled with mature trees and roundels.
“Having only opened for play in 1991, Brunston Castle has quickly established itself as a true and fair test of golf for players of all standards, not to mention a refreshing alternative to the numerous links courses that are found in its vicinity. The course’s blossoming reputation was underlined when chosen to host the Scottish Youths Amateur Championships in 2004 and the Scottish Boys and Girls Championships in 2007.
“Brunston Castle can offer tee-time availability seven days a week, and our clubhouse facilities extend to the provision of formal dining in our restaurant, the more relaxed environment of our lounge where you can enjoy one of our excellent bar meals whilst taking in the stunning views of the golf course and the impressive scenery beyond, or simply take in a refreshment whilst viewing the current sporting events on our widescreen television following a great day’s golf.
“My aim at Brunston Castle is to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience and a day to remember.”
