PGA Professional / Director of Golf

DEAN VANNET (CMdip)

Dean was appointed Professional to the Club at the start of 2016.
Hailing from Carnoustie, he qualified as a Professional at Banchory Golf Club in 1988 under the guidance of the then Head professional Douglas Smart.

Dean spent 5 years as an assistant at Banchory working alongside former Open Champion Paul Lawrie before taking on the position as the first ever Head Professional at neighbouring club Peterculter in Aberdeen.

Dean spent 23 years at Peterculter Golf Club and combined the role of the Clubs General Manager for 15 years during which time he gained a diploma in modern club management as delivered by the SGU and the CMAE.

Although the playing has reduced greatly Dean managed to win several Pro Am events on the Tartan Tour with a particular highlight coming in 1996 where he scored a 10 under par 62 in winning the Portlethen Pro-Am and established a new course record which still stands to date. Also in the same year he scored an 8 under par 64 over the Nairn Dunbar course playing in the Nabors Drilling Pro-Am, and while the score itself was enjoyable, the most memorable part of the round was scoring 9 consecutive birdies from the 5th to the 13th.
