My name is Andy Fullen and I am the resident PGA Professional here at Largs Golf Club. I am proud to have been Professional here since April 2008.
I started my Professional career as a trainee at Auchenharvie Golf Complex in Stevenston as an 18 year old. In April 2001 I moved on to complete my PGA training at The Irvine Golf Club (Bogside). At that point I was one of the youngest PGA Qualified Professionals' in the country and this allowed me to broaden my horizons with playing opportunities and also in coaching. Highlight of my playing career so far was reaching Final Qualifying at Western Gailes Golf Club for the 2004 Open Championship at Royal Troon. I still love to compete on the Scottish PGA 'Tartan Tour' when my time allows. My time at Irvine under Head Professional James McKinnon was perfect preparation for my future as a Club Professional. I was involved in the running of and organising major events such as Final Open Qualifying, the Senior Open Championship Final Qualifying and the Amateur Championship.
After 7 great years at The Irvine Golf Club I moved onto the position I currently occupy as PGA Professional here at Largs Golf Club. This was a very proud moment for me as I stayed in the town in my early years from ages of 10 - 18. We are very fortunate at Largs to have a superbly manicured golf course with 12 months of the year golf available. In the Pro Shop at Largs we aim to offer excellent customer service and a warm welcome to members and visitors alike. We are the first point of contact at the Club for many new people visiting and we are always happy to help with any queries visitors or members may have.
We have a fully stocked Pro Shop at Largs with many major manufacturers available including Titleist, Callaway, Wilson Staff, Puma footwear and apparel, Footjoy and many others. Custom fitting can be arranged and should you be looking for any item that we don't currently have in stock - please let us know and we will endeavour to source it for you at the best available price.
I offer tuition for all levels of golfers. I am experienced in coaching players of all abilities - from scratch players / Professionals to the complete beginner. Bespoke tuition packages can be arranged for each players individual needs. On course lessons are a speciality and are excellent for game improvement.
Along with my Assistant Anton O'Donnell, in 2016 we started a new category of Junior Membership for young players aged 8 - 14. We offer coaching sessions every Sunday during the season and we are already starting to see some great young players coming through. We currently have 40 Junior Academy members, should you wish more information on our Academy please call the Pro Shop on 01475 673594 ext1.
