The board of Scottish Golf has appointed Hamish Grey to be chief executive of the new organisation.
Hamish was chief executive Officer of the Scottish Golf Union (SGU) until it merged with the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association, creating a single administrative body for the game in its home country.
He takes up his position with immediate effect.
Karin Sharp, the former SLGA chief operating officer, has been appointed to the role of corporate services director within Scottish Golf, heading up the organisation’s finance, HR, IT and office management operations.
Mr Grey said: “It is a privilege to be asked to lead Scottish Golf as this exciting chapter in the game’s story begins.
“We start from a good position, but there is an important job to do to support our clubs and to grow this important sport to the benefit of every part of society.” Mr Grey has worked in sports management throughout his career.
