Kerry named as new General Manager at Redditch Golf Club

Kerry Alligan-Smith has been appointed as General Manager of Redditch Golf Club, one of Worcestershire’s most popular courses.

She has taken over at the Lower Grinsty Lane club from Sue McDevitt who has moved to Cornwall to be the new General Manager of Perranporth Golf Club after four years at the Redditch club.

Club chairman Peter Johnson said Kerry’s sales and business development background was just what the club was seeking when Sue decided to move to Cornwall.

She has most recently worked as portfolio commercial partnerships manager for Lend Lease, the international project management and construction company, including managing The International Quarter next to the Olympic Park in London.

She was previously involved in the management and development of Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull.

Peter Johnson said: “Kerry has just the right skillset to take the club forward and build on the good work done by Sue.

“Golf clubs are now about so much more than just the golf course, and clubs that are thriving have taken this on board. We thank Sue for all her hard work for Redditch Golf Club and are delighted to welcome such a strong successor as Kerry.”

Kerry Alligan-Smith said: “I am delighted to have joined Redditch Golf Club and look forward to meeting all the members, our corporate clients and those who use the club purely socially.

“Redditch Golf Club is renowned for its playing facilities and I now plan to build on the club’s growing reputation as a place to play and to do business.”

She lives in Astwood Bank and among her many skills she is also a champion Irish dancer.

She was British Champion in October 2017 and will be competing in the World Championships in April in Maastricht, Netherlands.

Gaudet Luce Golf Club

Gaudet Luce – Major host

This is a modern golf and leisure complex that doesn’t like to sit still and the steady growth in popularity of the club since its opening in 1995 has enabled the family ownership to put investment back into the course and facilities.

125 years – South Staffs GC

The South Staffordshire Club is always a special visit. Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Wolverhampton, a traditional members club with a much admired parkland course that never fails to impress. Messrs Vardon, Colt, Braid and more recently Donald Steel have all played their parts in creating a layout that charms, teases and yields a low score very reluctantly.
