Following the announcement that current CEO, Keith Lloyd, will leave his role next February, the Weston-Super-Mare based body, sitting at the heart of the UK golf industry, has turned to Colt Mackenzie McNair’s executive recruitment expertise to find his successor.

The highly-respected GCMA, through its network of 17 regional secretaries across GB & Ireland, provides members with a comprehensive library of services that includes training courses, networking meetings, a member-only trade publication, national conference and valuable liaison with other golf bodies.
