Joyce has been the Club Manager at Muckhart Golf Club since May 2017 and has been enrolled on the CMAE’s Management Development Programme having completed MDP parts 1 and 2 plus MDP Golf Management and gained the Club Management Diploma.

Nestling on the shore of the great river Clyde, Helensburgh Golf Club is only 23 miles north west of Glasgow. Helensburgh Golf Club was founded in August 1893 and originally formed a 9 hole layout, but by 1905, the course had been extended to 18 holes. From the beginning, Helensburgh has been a family club, with a predominantly town membership and the members are drawn from all walks of life.
Commenting on her appointment Joyce said “I am looking forward to taking up the role of General Manager at Helensburgh Golf Club. It is reassuring for the future of golf, that Clubs are investing in Professional Golf Managers and as a member of CMAE, I am grateful for the knowledge gained through participation of the educational pathway which is then enhanced through the continual support from the growing Tribe which has undoubtedly given me the confidence to pursue my career goals within the industry. I thrive on new challenges and am committed to manage, support and develop any changes which are inevitable within our Clubs.”
