Born & bred in St Andrews, Gordon has seen the business he started 19 years ago evolve dramatically and it is now one of the most established golf tour operators in Scotland. At the root of the success is an extremely personalised “hands on” service reflected in the fact that 50% of annual business is either repeat custom or referrals from satisfied customers. His golf handicap is going in the wrong direction at present as a young family more often than not make a successful challenge for their Dad’s time. Also Gordon is a committed Scottish rugby fan which when considering the national team’s track record can frequently prove a traumatic experience.
Originally from Glasgow, Caroline first moved up to St Andrews in 1996 to study Geology and Geography at the university. Shamefully, for the four years she was there, she didn’t once lift a golf club or even step foot on the courses! It wasn’t until she moved back to St Andrews in 2002, after a period of managing restaurants in Glasgow that she decided to see what all of the fuss was about. Since then she has become a self-confessed golf bore and when she is not toiling away in the Drumgolf office you can almost definitely find Caroline on one of St Andrews’ many golf courses. Caroline was shortlisted by Golf Tourism Scotland for the Young Industry Person Award 2008 , & was highly commended by the board! She also managed to find the time to start a family in 2009…hopefully baby Charlotte will share her mum’s passion for the game!!
Born in Grantown on spey in the heart of the highlands of Scotland. Graeme first learnt to play his golf on the links at Nairn. He has lived in Edinburgh the past 35 years and is a member of North Berwick Golf Club. After many years playing the game he achieved his first hole in one in 2014 resulting in a very expensive bar bill ! Graeme is often the first friendly face that our clients encounter in Scotland, as he welcomes customers arriving at Edinburgh airport.

Amanda first came to St Andrews in 1996 to do an MA in Spanish. After graduating in 2000 she moved to Spain and took up residency in Madrid working in IT Recruitment. The sunshine and sultry Spanish way of life was what dreams were made of. However, in 2008, the glamour and jet set lifestyle was traded in for a pair of wellies and a life in Fife as a farmer’s wife. These days, if she is not organising bespoke golf tour packages for Drum Golf, she will be cooking full Scottish breakfasts in their farmhouse B&B or helping her husband with their self-catering eco cabin business. She has two young children who are full of vim and vigour and life is busy so, after a hard day’s work you might find her enjoying some ‘time out’ at the Old Course Spa. Rumour has it she is considering the idea of trying golf too. Watch this space!
