A top hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club, has appointed two expert hospitality professionals to its senior management team.

Described by the hotel management as a “real coup”, the resort has recruited Craig Waddell as director of golf and leisure. Waddell, an AA PGA Golf Professional, has moved from Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, and previously Trump International Golf Club, Dubai to take up residence at Dalmahoy’s renowned golf and leisure resort. He replaces Sam Oliver who has recently joined The Wisley Golf Club in Surrey.
