David Baillie

David took up golf at the tender age of 9 when his father joined Turnberry as Head Greenkeeper. In 1968, at 17 years old, David turned Professional, completing his apprenticeship and qualifying as a PGA Pro whilst working at Turnberry.

Following a brief spell at Burhill GC in Surrey, David returned to Scotland in 1971 as Senior Assistant Pro at Royal Troon. In 1975 a move back to the south of England took David to Flackwell Heath Golf Club, working with Ryder Cup player, John Garner, followed by 6 years as Head Pro at Forest of Arden GC.

David finally settled as Head Pro at Dulwich & Sydenham Hill in 1984, seeing many changes and helping the Club to flourish over the past 30 plus years.
