Ex-professional is new manager at golf club
Bath Golf Club has appointed a new club manager after a nationwide search using professional headhunters.
Tony Roberts has taken on the role following a recruitment process led by golfing management specialists Colt Mackenzie McNair.
He joins Bath from Chiltern Forest Golf Club where he was general manager from 2009. Tony originally qualified as a PGA professional at Royal Liverpool Golf Club Hoylake, where he worked as club professional until 1990.
The chairman of Bath Golf Club, Stan Frith, said that while the existing staff had done sterling work over the past six months in the absence of a manager, the appointment was crucial in taking the club forward in line with its development plans. After the extensive recruitment process, the club's management board was unanimous in its final selection.

"Not only does Tony have extensive golf club management," said Mr Frith, "but also as an ex-professional, he understands everything there is to know about golf and golfers.
"He and Russell Covey, the resident club professional, know each other from a previous life and are looking forward to working alongside each other.
"We believe we have found the best person with the right mix of skills, experience and personality to manage the club in today's environment."
Club captain Cliff Saull added: "I feel that this is a good marriage and that achievement of the goals we have been working towards at the club will be accelerated by Tony's experience, leadership and knowledge."
