We are pleased to announce that Michael Kanev is our new Club Professional. Michael is currently the Club Professional at Lochgelly in Fife and will take up the position at Kingsknowe on Saturday the 8th of February. Michael was born in Bulgaria and moved to Edinburgh in 1997. As an amateur player, he won the Bulgarian Amateur Open in 2006 and then represented Bulgaria in the Eisenhower Trophy – the biggest team competition in the amateur game – in South Africa in 2006.
Having moved to London to begin his PGA career in 2012 as a PGA Assistant, Michael was offered the opportunity to work at Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society in Edinburgh in 2015. In April 2018, Michael was then appointed to his first Head Professional role by Lochgelly Golf Club. Michael still enjoys playing golf competitively and participates in the PGA Regional Events across Scotland. He lives in Edinburgh with his wife Kamala and their daughter, Maxine. We all look forward to welcoming Michael to Kingsknowe next month.
