af3The Glasgow Golf Union is very proud to announce the appointment of Alistair Forsyth as the new Glasgow Golf Union Coach.
The former European Tour professional has agreed to coach the Glasgow Golf Union boys starting immediately. Alistair represented Scotland at all levels of amateur golf and is no stranger to the Glasgow Golf Union where he represented the union at all levels.
Alistair brings his vast competitive experience to the Glasgow Coaching setup and hopefully that winning mentality can rub off on some of our boys and inspire them to emulate his successes at all levels.
Alistair has a fantastic playing history commencing in the early nineties as a junior being runner-up in the Scottish Boys in 1992 and 1994 and in the top eight in the two intervening years. During those early years Alistair represented Scotland in the boy’s home internationals, European boys and the boy’s quadrangular tournament in 1993 and 1994. Alistair also represented GB & Ireland versus Europe in 1994.
Alistair continued his success as a youth player winning the Glasgow Youths Open Championship twice and finished 3rd in the Scottish youths in 1995 and 1996. He again represented Scotland at youth level winning the European youths Championship in 1996. At senior level Alistair won the Scottish stroke play in 1996 finishing the year 2nd in the order of merit. He continued his Glasgow successes by winning both the Glasgow Strokeplay Championship and the Glasgow Open Championship in 1997. Alistair again represented Scotland in the home internationals in 1996 and the European championships in 1997.

Alistair turned pro in 98 and was named rookie of the year in Scotland winning the Scottish under25's. He finished top of tartan tour money list and 2nd in Scottish order of merit in 1999, winning the Scottish assistants championship, the Northern Open Championship and the MasterCard (Europro) order of merit in the same year. Alsiatair then topped it all off by moving onto the European tour by winning the tour school in that very successful 1999.

During his 15 years on the tour he won twice, the Malaysian open in 2002 and the Madeira Islands open in 2008. He played in 4 Open Championships, 3 USPGA's and 1 US Open Championship and represented Scotland 5 times in the World Cup of Golf.
