Professional's Shop

Ricky Duckett

In 2011 the Council of Fortwilliam Golf Club was delighted to appoint Ricky Duckett as full time professional of the club.


Having been a junior member of Fortwilliam, Ricky turned Professional in 1995 and started his pro career at Belvoir Park Golf Club. It wasn’t long before he returned to our club working with Peter Hanna and over the next 16 years he became a proud ambassador of the club and a firm favourite among the members. When Peter Hanna left Fortwilliam to return to his homeland of Lurgan Golf Club, Ricky became the right and obvious successor to fill Peter’s shoes in driving the Pro Shop forward. Since that appointment, Ricky’s knowledge, professionalism and passion for the club has proven that we have a man of the highest calibre in this position.


Ricky’s assistant, Chris Crangle, likewise was a junior member of the club before rapidly climbing the ranks to represent Fortwilliam at the highest levels in senior golf. Chris turned professional in 2012 and together with Ricky, they make a great team offering a warm and friendly welcome to members and visitors alike.


Specialising in tuition, top end equipment and clothing for all seasons the Pro Shop provides a very comprehensive service at extremely competitive prices. Should you have any questions in this regard Ricky and Chris are there to help and may be contacted on 028 90 770980.
