About our Club Professional

Ian Gelsthorpe (Club Professional) is born and bred in Nottingham. He gained a BA Sport and Leisure Studies degree at Staffordshire University, where he also was part of their golf team. Responding to an advert for an assistant professional at Ruddington, he joined the staff in April 2002. With a handicap of 2.6, he opted to become a professional after coming third in the Notts Alliance 'Order of Merit'. Since gaining his PGA Foundation Degree in December 2006, his main focus has been on coaching rather than playing.
