Meet our Golf Operations Manager, Matt Lavington


1) What is your role at Golf At Goodwood

I am the Operations Manager. To summarise I’d say that ultimately my job is to ensure everyone associated to Golf At Goodwood has the best possible experience, from both members & guests and also the staff. I’m fortunate to have a brilliant team who deliver a great experience each day, from all front of house staff to the membership team.

2) What do you most enjoy about your role?

I love the challenge of making Golf At Goodwood one of the best golfing experiences there are. We’re lucky in that Goodwood is such a progressive club which brings great opportunities, such as those outlined in the recent vision document, but also the opportunities available for every staff member and their career progression.

3) Best golfing experience?

Watching Gary Beves four putt from two feet around Hindhead will never be beaten, however aside from that playing some of the Country’s best courses, such as Sunningdale… however, when this newsletter goes live I will be teeing it up on The Old Course at St Andrews, so do think of me as I cross the famous bridge.

4) Your dream fourball?

Tiger Woods, Liam Gallagher and probably Gareth Southgate so I can try and convince him to finally drop Harry Maguire!

5) What do you like most about Goodwood?

The Estate’s Christmas party is quite something, less so working the day after it… Otherwise, being surrounded by such a great team of people day in day out, in such a fast paced and forward thinking environment.
