Alan Walker comes to golf course design from a PGA Golf Professional background. Turning professional in 1974, becoming a Club Professional soon after and then a golf club owner, his passion for golf saw him at the forefront of the PGA becoming their Millennium Captain in 2000 and voted PGA's of Europe's coveted '5 Star Professional' award in 2016. His interest in golf course design goes back to the early 1990's when he designed Benton Hall GC in Essex and quickly followed on with Rivenhall Oaks GC, with 27 holes at Garon Park GC and similar at Heydon Grange GC in Cambridgeshire.
In recent years he designed the 27 hole Ingrebourne Links Country Club, one of the largest inert fill sites in the UK, taking over a decade to complete. He is currently assisting a number of clubs, with general design changes, safety issues, re-bunkering and other advice through his company Alan Walker Consultancy Limited. He offers a unique service with course design integrating with operational and financial advice learnt from his years owning and operating a busy golf club.
