David Joy, the Chief Executive of England Golf, is to leave the organisation at the end of this year to become the Chief Executive of British Canoeing.
He announced his resignation to the Board and to staff today and will take up his new appointment on 1 January 2016.
England Golf Chairman Graham Yates said: “I must thank David Joy for his enthusiasm and support for England Golf and its aspirations. Significant progress has been achieved during his 2½ years in office, particularly with the launch of the Strategic Plan for England Golf, Raising Our Game.
“David will remain in office until 31 December and the company will continue ‘business as normal’ until a new appointment is made. Arrangements are being put in hand in this respect with immediate effect.”
David Joy joined England Golf in April 2013, following the merger of the former English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association. He brought with him over 25 years of management experience within national and local sports organisations, more than 12 of which have been as a Chief Executive.
During his tenure he has overseen the launch of the England Golf Strategic Plan, Raising Our Game, which calls on all who are involved in the sport to work together to create a brighter future for the game. It aims to create: more players; more club members; stronger clubs; winning golfers; outstanding championships; an improved image of the game; and excellent governance.
