Richard Gordon hails from Largs in Ayrshire and became Head Professional at Belleisle Golf Courses in 2007 after spending thirteen years at the club as an assistant professional to David Gemmell.

He played most of his junior golf at Morpeth in Northumberland where he represented both club and county before returning home to Ayrshire to study Leisure Management at SRUC College.

Richard is a respected PGA trained teaching professional and is well known for his enthusiasm towards coaching golfers of all ages, especially developing talent in young players and is currently a county coach to The Ayrshire Golf Association.

As well as being teaching professional, Richard also specialises in custom fitting and club repairs. His philosophy is that all golf clubs should be made to suit the golfer whether they are old or new which will help both performance and the enjoyment of the game. Richard is a certified custom fitter for manufactures such as Titleist and Ping but he can also help customers with existing clubs by altering lofts, lies, shafts and grips.

Richard is an experienced retailer with five friendly members of staff who are always ready to advice and direct customers around his well-stocked shop. Throughout the year the shop is stocked with the latest clothing ranges from manufactures such as Under Armour, Glenmuir, Sunice,Footjoy and Sunderland while products from club manufactures such as Titleist, Ping, TaylorMade and Wilson are always available.
