The achievement of Tim Stevens in reviving the fortunes of what was once a struggling pro shop at The Leicestershire Golf Club has been recognised by TGI Golf Partnership.
Stevens has won the Partnership’s Most Improved Business Award for 2016 after missing out in 2015.
Commenting on his achievement, a TGI spokesman said: “This is the second consecutive year Tim has been nominated for this award.
“It’s an indication of just how far he’s brought the business since taking over a struggling shop in 2015.
“He has invested heavily in his business over the last 12 months, conducting a complete shop refit, working closely with his TGI retail consultant to ensure the layout and merchandising was perfect.
“These changes, plus the addition of a swing room, better business planning and clever buying has enabled Tim to grow his turnover significantly, a tremendous achievement in these tough times.”
Stevens said: ‘I couldn’t have imagined this happening two years ago. I would like to thank Eddie (Reid) and the TGI staff, especially Chris Taylor and all my staff at the club. Without them none of this would have been possible.”
