It is with deep regret that we have to advise that Ayrshire Golf Association Executive member Cliff Francis passed away this morning, Wednesday 29 October 2014.
A retired Chief Inspector with Strathclyde Police, Cliff was an AGA Executive member since 2009 and was of course well known throughout the county with his invaluable contribution to both the boys team and our area championships, and also through his years of work on behalf of his home club Troon Welbeck, as a Past Captain and Club Secretary.
Cliff approached his illness over the last year or so with courage and determination, and will be sadly missed by friends and colleagues, but will be remembered for his wit and friendship by many in the Ayrshire golf community and beyond..
Any funeral arrangements will be advised as soon as these become available.
The thoughts of everyone within the Ayrshire Golf Association are with Cliff's wife and family at this very sad time.
