Kingsbarns Golf Links has announced that Stuart McEwen, its General Manager since early 2000, will be leaving Kingsbarns to take up a new challenge.
Stuart is proud of the international acclaim Kingsbarns has achieved under his leadership.
Since its opening in July 2000 it has consistently been ranked among the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World and has hosted ten Alfred Dunhill Links Championships.
“The past decade has gone by very quickly. We have a first class management team here and I’m grateful to have been part of everything they have achieved,” McEwen is quoted as saying in the press release about his resignation..
“However,” he adds, “from a personal standpoint, I have accomplished what I set out to do. With the tenth anniversary celebration last year and our strong involvement with the Open Championship, I feel that I have reached a professional crossroad.
“While Kingsbarns is a very special place to which I shall often return, I’m looking forward to the challenge of developing the next stage of my career.”
Art Dunkley, Kingsbarns co-founder and owner, accepted Stuart’s decision with reluctance.
“Stuart’s careful leadership and congenial style made Kingsbarns everything it has come to be. I know I speak for everyone who has had the pleasure of working for and with Stuart when I say he will be profoundly missed. I personally thank Stuart for his absolute dedication to Kingsbarns and for the pleasure of working with him”.
“Stuart will be continuing in his current role for three months while the Company arranges a successor to lead Kingsbarns into the future,” he added.
