After fifteen years with Crown Golf, Chief Operating Officer John Weir left the company at the end of July 2009 to pursue a private equity-backed opportunity in the UK golf sector.

Over the years John, an original founder of Crown Golf, has played an important role in the development of the Binfield, Berks-based company, which is the UK’s largest owner / operator with more than 50 golf courses.

Crown Golf Chief Executive Officer Stephen Lewis commented, “John’s role in building this company should be recognised and we are sorry to see him go."

“I have really enjoyed my time with Crown Golf,” said John Weir. “It is a great company, with some first class people, and I believe that they will continue to play their part in the development of the game in this country.”
