Ian Seymour
Director of Golf, Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range

Ian has wanted to be a golf professional since he was little, and as the Director of Golf at the Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range, he is able to do something he loves while giving back to the community at the same time.

Ian first started with First Tee – Greater Richmond in 2018 as a part-time coach before joining the organization full time in 2019. As the Director of Golf at Elson Redmond, Ian oversees all operations at the facility, including sales, merchandise, events, lessons, and staff.

Ian is a PGA Associate working towards becoming a PGA Professional member. He also coordinates First Tee – Greater Richmond’s club fitting opportunities.

A Virginia Tech graduate, Ian loves getting out on the Pete Dye River Course whenever he gets back to Blacksburg. He is a fan of Mike Strantz courses, too, enjoying both Tobacco Road and Royal New Kent.

A native of upstate New York, Ian moved to Richmond six years ago after graduating from Virginia Tech and lives with his fiancé Kayla. When he isn’t on the course, you’ll still find him outside hiking, kayaking or playing the guitar.
