Founder & Managing Director
The Gecko Pro Tour
The Gecko Elite Golf Academy is an important new initiative that is committed to providing each individual elite player with the professional support and competitive experience that will enable him/her to proceed with confidence & authority towards the highest levels in the sport.
"My role is to over-see the Academy operations to ensure we deliver on this commitment and that the level of support the players receive is of the highest order. Nothing but the best will suffice".
Director - The Gecko Elite Golf Academy
In his youth, Ken played golf to a high standard and represented his county. However there came a point when he realised he was not equipped to progress to the professional ranks and elected instead to concentrate on a business career.
During the many years spent in management roles in the UK, Ken maintained a strong relationship in the sporting world. In addition to playing golf, Ken was an active cricketer who eventually took on a role as Chairman of a club where he built a renowned youth development programme.
Before joining The Gecko Elite Golf Academy, Ken was Director of a successful UK-based golf academy.
