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.
