The Board of the Scottish Golf Union Ltd regrets to announce that due to health reasons Douglas Connon will not be putting his name forward for a second term in the position of Chairman of the Board at the AGM on 22 January 2012.
Douglas took over from Alistair Low as Chairman in January 2009 and will continue in his role until the AGM, but has decided not to be considered for another three-year term.
Douglas’ priorities have changed as a result of the serious illness he has endured this past year and the need to focus on getting back to full health and business life.
Hamish Grey, CEO of the Scottish Golf Union, said:
“On behalf of all associated with the Scottish Golf Union, it is with great sadness we received this news.
Douglas has helped raise the profile, reputation and finances of the Scottish Golf Union".
“I would personally like to thank Douglas for the support he has given to the Board over these past three years. We wish him a speedy recovery.”
The Board will review the Scottish Golf Union’s position post the January AGM in due course.
Further comment will made be made from the Scottish Golf Union regarding this issue at the AGM.
