Paul Girvan of the King's Links Golf Centre
The King's Links Golf Centre plays host to another terrific and influential instructor and director, Paul Girvan. From the early age of 5, Paul has been completely submersed in the world of Golf, which eventually lead to his caddying for his father at Prestwick St. Nicholas, which led to his joining of Prestwick by age 12. A mere 5 years later, Paul was accepting international honours for the Scottish Boys’ Team.
His ambition, drive, and love for the sport pushed him forward, giving him the opportunity to represent Scotland, Ireland, and Great Britain for a number of years, when finally it all came to fruition in 1987. This was the year that Paul Girvan would win the Walker Cup at Sunningdale Golf Club, which would lead him on a path to turning pro in 1989. He has been aiding and instructing through King's Links since 1990, and has worked with some of the greatest in the game. The amount of knowledge and experience you will receive from Paul is immeasurable, and you can't help but improve your game when you work with such a distinguished player as him.
