Curry’s coastal switch

Northumberland golf legend David Curry has been appointed general manager at Seahouses Golf Club.

Former European Tour and Walker Cup player David moves from Blyth Golf Club to take the post. He said: “I’m looking forward to seeing what the move to Seahouses Golf Club brings.

“I want to continue to build on the club’s recent success, particularly its growing membership and green fees, along with the popularity of the bistro. It will also be really important to continue the local community’s involvement with the club.

“Seahouses is a very friendly club in a beautiful area. The stunning views and laidback atmosphere allows everyone to feel welcome.

“I enjoyed my time at Blyth a great deal, but this was an opportunity I simply couldn’t refuse.”

David is one of Northumberland’s greatest golfers. Winner of the Amateur Championship in 1986, he competed in The Masters and The Open the following year before competing in the Walker Cup and going on to play on the European Tour. Following his time on tour, David has worked at clubs across the North East including Linden Hall and most recently Blyth Golf Club.
