Shaun Clark qualified as a PGA Professional with flying colours in 2012 and shortly afterwards, contacted Club Inc. for career coaching. Within 4 months of meeting with Club Inc. Shaun had successfully applied for, and become the Assistant Professional at the majestic Castiglion del Bosco (CdB) estate in Tuscany, Italy.
Club Inc. offer an un-matched career coaching service in the golf sector, and Shaun is just one example of the great work they have done, and are capable of doing. The PGAs of Europe are delighted to be partners of Club Inc. and it’s evident why. Club Inc. fully support professionals within the industry, and are actively sourcing placements for those who wish to fulfill their potential at the world’s finest golfing venues.
“I wanted to further my career, set myself new challenges and make the most of my knowledge,” says Shaun. “I knew that in order to do this I would need some help from experts such as Niall Flanagan, who has the contacts to help, so it was natural for me to turn to Club Inc. After sitting down with the Club Inc. team and discussing my strengths, goals and aspirations, I felt confident in applying to Castiglion del Bosco and now, I’m living out my dream in one of the most spectacular estates in Europe.”
Shaun is working under English head professional Alex Douglas. Together they are responsible for offering a high quality service to members and guests, as well as running a professional retail operation and giving their guidance through tuition.
Emanuela Setterberg, General Manager of Castiglion del Bosco said “We are absolutely delighted to have Shaun at CdB. His passion for golf, and in helping people to improve is the perfect fit for the work we are trying to do here. Shaun and Alex are becoming a formidable team who are paramount to the success of CdB.”
Club Inc. are also working with Castiglion del Bosco to develop their brand within golf in order to encourage more international players to visit the venue, and join the aspirational membership.
The estate is hidden within the Val d’Orcia, a renowned landscape of great beauty and universal appeal within the Tuscany region. It plays host to the stunning Tom Weiskopf designed 18-hole golf course, spa and winery, and also boasts 23 luxury hotel suites and 9 villas. Quite possibly, Italy’s best kept secret.
