SGU & SLGA News Release

Amalgamated Governing Body Seeking New Board Directors

The new unified governing body for golf in Scotland has begun the process of appointing its first Chairperson and Non-Executive Board who will be tasked with leading the organisation into a new era. 
Following unanimous votes earlier this year by the members of the Scottish Golf Union (SGU) and Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association (SLGA) to amalgamate into a unified governing body, Scottish Golf Limited will officially begin life on 1 October.  Suitable applicants are now being sought for the nine positions on the inaugural board.
An Appointments Panel, led by existing chairs Tom Craig (SGU) and Beth Paterson (SLGA), are working alongside an independent HR consultancy to oversee the interviewing and selection of candidates, with the aim of recruiting people who share a genuine passion for the game combined with the qualifications, skills and determination to lead the strategic direction and successful long term growth of golf in Scotland.
Each Board position will be Non-Executive and non-remunerated while appointments will be effective from 1 October with a 3-year term and a maximum of two terms. The first appointment will be that of the new Chairperson, who, once recruited, will be involved in selecting suitable candidates for the remaining eight vacancies. 
In addition to the Chairperson, candidates are being sought for directorships in the following areas: Championships; Club Development; Commercial; Communications; Finance; Handicapping & Course Rating; Participation; and Performance. Individuals must demonstrate expertise and a track record from their professional careers and/or within the game in relation to the respective role being applied for, with a sound knowledge of golf and the industry and a desire to make a positive and meaningful contribution to the game and its continued development.
There will be a minimum of three directors of each gender. This will ensure that a substantial minority group is appropriately represented within the organisation. Successful candidates will attend quarterly Board meetings, as well as supporting the work of the new organisation’s committees across its key areas.
Beth Paterson, Chair of the SLGA, said: “These roles represent exciting opportunities for individuals with a desire to give something back to the game and a willingness to make a real difference to the future of golf in Scotland. 
“The positive vote on amalgamation has given us real momentum to drive the game forward. The new Board will be key to realising the vision of the new organisation.”
SGU Chairman Tom Craig added: “We want to ensure we have the best available people on the new Board of Scottish Golf Limited and therefore we have a robust recruitment process in place. It is vital that we attract individuals who are suitably qualified, share our vision and have the desire and commitment required. 
The sport continues to face challenges, but with the right people on board, working with an excellent executive team, we believe they can guide our clubs and golfers into an exciting new era for Scottish golf.”
The Non-Executive Director roles will be advertised on both the SGU and SLGA websites, with full details and role descriptions available at the following microsite:
 Applications should be submitted no later than Sunday 14 June with CV’s submitted through the above web link or sent in writing to Hilary Roberts, HR Consultancy (Scotland) Ltd, 58 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 2QZ.
