Mark tops the leaderboard at Stamford with clever initiative

Mark Smith stood next to the golf scoreboard he designed

MARK Smith, director of golf and PGA professional at Stamford, has invested £8,000 in an initiative to give amateur players a big-time experience.

Mark hasdesigned and commissioned a large scoreboard that is similar to that used for professional tournaments, but which is used for club competitions.

He said: “We used the scoreboard recently for the first time for Captain’s Weekend, one of our biggest events of the year.

“It made a massive impact as everybody was able to see at a glance how everybody was faring in the competition, something that was impossible beforehand.”

While Mark designed the scoreboard it was manufactured by metal fabricator Electrica Limited, a Dukinfield design and manufacturing company run whose managing director is Stamford member Eric Nield.

It is a business venture and Mark is keen to hire out the scoreboard so he can recoup his outlay.

“There has been a lot of interest from clubs as far afield as Cornwall while one in Salisbury has asked me to design one for them,” he said.
