Golf Professional - Quality all round

Quality all round from our golf professionals and the Pro Shop.

Our resident Society Professional, Steven Brian, has one priority at The Royal Burgess Golfing Society: to make the ‘The Royal Burgess Experience’ on the course a truly exceptional one.

Offering expert tuition as well as other helpful services such as equipment hire and repair, Steven’s team is based at the Professional’s Shop – a fully stocked hub of activity. Laden with all the latest golfing ‘must haves’, the shop sells all the leading golf brands, as well as a great selection of Society branded merchandise, and the professionals are always on hand to provide advice and talk you through all the available options

Steven Brian, Society Professional

Steven was appointed Society Professional in 2002, after nine years as the Assistant. He has built up a reputation as a talented coach, starting at club level, then county, and finally to international coaching.


Leigh W Lawson, Trainee Assistant Professional

Leigh joined the Society in March 2018. He previously spent a number of competitive years playing as an amateur, including one year spent in West Virgina, USA, playing for the Davis and Elkins College. He recently enrolled in the PGA Diploma course at The University of the Highlands & Islands, and looks forward to getting started in September.

Adam Stott, Trainee Assistant Professional

In 2015 I moved out to Orlando, Florida to play college golf for Webber International University. I was a Top 5 team player for my two years which gave me the luxury of travelling and playing across America. I then turned Pro in November 2017 and underwent my PGA training course at Ladybank GC which I completed in 2020. In the last three years I have competed in various Tartan Tour/ PGA events in the UK and I am thoroughly looking forward to representing The Royal Burgess Golfing Society in future events.’

Adam is a fine fit for us here in the Proshop in 2021
