Andrew Gay hands over reins in SA

Wednesday 26, Feb 2020

Long serving GMASA chair, Andrew Gay, has handed over the reins of the organisation to a new generation following the SA Annual General Meeting held at The Grange Golf Club on Friday, 21st February 2020.

After nearly a decade in the local role, which included representation on the national GMA board, and culminating in a 2-year stint as national chair, the Royal Adelaide General Manager thanked has fellow board members and colleagues, and wished the organisation well for the future as he chaired his final AGM.

Gay’s contribution to the golf management industry, both at a state and national level, has been extensive and there is no doubt the industry is signficantly better off thanks, in part, to his professionalism and long term vision for the association.

Elected to the GMASA board for 2020/21 was Mark Tan (Mount Osmond GC), Brett Lewis (Kooyonga GC), Robert Vincekovic (Glenelg GC), Joel Cross (Flagstaff Hill GC) and Daniel Loveridge (Blackwood GC). A new chair will be appointed at the first executive meeting in coming months.

Following the AGM, Glenelg Golf Club’s Robert Vincekovic gave a short presentation to members following his recent CMAA conference attendance as part of the MiClub/Northstar CMAA World Conference Scholarship Program.

GMA CEO, Paul Vardy, also addressed the group providing an update on current happenings within the industry including the upcoming BMI program modules.

The NSW Salver, GMASA’s main individual trophy event for the year, was played in the afternoon around The Grange’s West Course, with Mount Osmond’s Mark Tan taking out the 2020 title.
