Garry Bowman, Managing Secretary

Garry became Managing Secretary at Stirling Golf Club in April 2014 taking over from the outgoing Secretary Alan Rankin. Garry has been an active playing member at various clubs throughout Scotland including Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, Deer Park, Harburn, Bathgate and 10 years in the North East of England at Backworth GC. During this time Garry enjoyed playing team golf and managed to get as low as 2 handicap but is now on the way up as age catches him up.

With an IT and Sales Manager background Garry took on the role at SGC where he attained his level 1 MDP Scottish Golf qualification in Oct 2014. Having previously served on committee roles Garry relishes the daily challenge of working at a busy golf club and serving a membership of over 1000. This requires a strong team all pulling in the same direction to deliver a consistent service to members, visitors and committee.

SGC celebrates its 150th year in 2019 and Garry looks forward to this very special anniversary with everyone connected to the club.

I am a highly motivated and driven golf professional with a passion for coaching. After winning the Scottish Ladies Amateur Championship and representing Scotland on the international stage, I turned professional in 2015. From there I gained qualifying rights onto the Ladies European Tour where I played in various events across the world.

Now my attention is focused on coaching golfers of all abilities, helping players lower their scores on the golf course and improve their overall game.

I am also involved with the junior programme at Stirling Golf Club and have a keen interest in developing junior golfers as well as inspiring more females to take up this great game.
