It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our former Club Professional, Gordon Brand.
Gordon moved from Kirkcaldy, Fife to Bristol in 1964 and was a very prominent amateur golfer winning the Gloucestershire County Championship in 1965 and 1969.
He succeeded his Uncle, Tom McNaughton and became our Club Professional in 1969. It was a role he held for over 30 years until his retirement in 2001. Through his renowned coaching and the achievements of his pupils, he brought great prestige to Knowle and he was made an Honorary Member of the Club and the Professional Golfers Association.
Gordon will be fondly remembered as one of the great characters in our Club’s history and we will miss him.
We offer our sincere condolences to Wife Nanny, Sons Mike and Gordon, Daughter in Law Sheena, Grandson Alex and all the family.
Funeral details will be published here when announced.
