 Ross McConnachie returns to Peterculter 

Golf Club for his first head pro post

Banff-born Ross McConnachie, a former assistant pro under Dean Vannet at Peterculter Golf Club, is returning to the club as head professional, the first such appointment in his career.
McConnachie spent his formative golf years playing on the links courses of Moray Golf Club at Lossiemouth.
He gained a sports management degree at Aberdeen University and after three years working abroad, he started his PGA career as an asssitant pro at Peterculter Golf Club in July 2011 and completed his PGA training in 2015. 
"After four successful years I moved on to Drumoig Golf Centre in May 2015," said McConnachie.
"It was a very busy but  enjoyable eight months at Drumoig working for PGA in Scotland captain Suart Syme and re-establishing Drumoig Golf Centre.  
"I have learnt a lot in my time there and I am sad to leave but the opportunity at Peterculter Golf Club is a huge career step for me and I look forward to a long and and successful reign at the club.
"It will be hard to follow in the footsteps of my old boss, Dean Vannet who has done a tremendous job of getting the club to where it is at today during his impressive 23 years at the club but I am very much looking forward to the challenge."
McConnachie fills the post vacated by Dean Vannet's recent move to Banchory Golf Club as head pro.
