Spotlight on Murrayshall's, Moray

June 28, 2021 by cs-ilck

About my role….. I am the Golf Shop Manager at Murrayshall Country House Hotel & Golf Courses in Scone, just outside Perth. I have worked at Murrayshall for 9 years and in my current role for 6. My responsibilities include;

  • Managing shop staff
  • Staffing shop
  • Fleet of 18 golf buggies
  • Driving range
  • Shop orders
  • Membership
  • Members competitions & handicaps
  • First point of contact for all golfers

What I enjoy about my job…..Every day can be different, depending on golf course traffic, weather and various other factors. I enjoy dealing with the public and especially the relationship I have with the members. I have worked in golf all my life and have fantastic passion for the sport.

What’s new at Murrayshall House Hotel?…..Murrayshall has undergone vast investment over the last few years under new ownership and the latest improvements include our new Spike Bar whilst continued investment on the golf course sees it getting better each year, one of the best presented courses in the area. The shop has returned to stocking golf clubs and we have the latest from Cobra, Titleist & Honma and we can do custom fittings with our new Skytrak fitting system.

What exciting things are coming up for you…..We are introducing a new layout of the golf course so the members & visitors can get used to it before it is used in competition play and this will enable players to pass the Spike bar & shop more often during their round. We finish the season with one of my favourite competitions for the members – Darrin’s Revenge! This is where Darrin, course manager, picks some outrageous pin positions on the greens, on extreme slopes or the very edge of the putting surface, for example, and we then have the members play to these for closing day. Great fun!

Did you know…..The Murrayshall course is relatively young, opened in 1981 but Murrayshall House was built in 1666. Murrayshall hosted the Trilby Tour in 2010 which was covered by Sky Sports.

Why should I hold a business event at Murrayshall…..Murrayshall is a fantastic setting for any meeting or any function for that matter, the scenery, wildlife, serenity, the refurbished function rooms and bed rooms, our staff are trained to a high standard to deliver the very best customer experience and we can tailor your meeting or event to whatever you need!
