Vale: Jeff Pollock

Wednesday 12, Aug 2020

It is with great sadness that we advise that former Schweppes golf rep., Jeff Pollock, passed away this week.

Jeff was one of Schweppes' key golf reps. from the early 1990s, and along with Qld State Manager, Jamie Kennedy, was instrumental in the establishment of the strong relationship enjoyed between Schweppes and Golf Management Australia until today, and no doubt, beyond.

Hearing the news of Jeff's passing, GMAQ President, Aaron Muirhead wrote, "Jeff was integral in the negotiations to become the Major GMA National Sponsor in the association’s formative years, a position Schweppes has continued to hold until this day. In reality, Jeff can be regarded as being responsible for Schweppes becoming the major benefactor and conference partner for Golf Management Australia, both nationally and across the country."

Muirhead noted that Jeff always was the “old fashioned face to face” rep. - and that he knew most golf club managers from Coolangatta Tweed to Cairns.

"Jeff was always aligned to GMAQ and for many years, was an active participant in our events, whilst holding membership at Pacific Golf Club until his health deteriorated," said Muirhead.

Current Schweppes Queensland Manager, Brad Jones, is continuing the legacy Jeff established with GMAQ many years ago.

Jeff leaves behind his loving wife Roberta.

Funeral arrangements are yet to be advised.
