All St Ives GC members appreciate what a good job Gordon is doing as our General Manager. Well, his talents have now been recognized nationally.
At the Golf Club Managers’ Association (GCMA) annual conference earlier this week, Gordon was awarded the accolade “Newcomer of the Year”. The GCMA has more than 1,800 members throughout the UK and this award is not delivered lightly. Our nomination of Gordon for Newcomer of the Year was among 15 received; those shortlisted received a half day visit to their club by the judging panel to assess their achievements and a “Dragons Den” type interview by the GCMA Board of Directors at their October meeting at The Oxfordshire GC.
Gordon is to be congratulated on this award, which is well deserved. All of his work for our club has been excellent so far and we hope he will continue for the foreseeable future.
Chair, Management Board
