Greg Mills, the Secretary of the Ladies’ Golf Union, has regretfully resigned from the position to return to his native Australia.
His decision to resign was brought about by his wife being offered a new appointment back in their homeland and was only reached with some difficulty after considerable ‘soul searching’ by Greg and Bronwyn.
Greg Mills, 54, took up the position of Secretary in October 2000 and in the short time he has been in office, has used his background in professional golf administration to initiate great improvements in systems both on and off the course. He has updated the LGU’s internal computer systems and raised the profile of the LGU by setting up a most informative web site. Additionally, his expertise has been particularly apparent in the setting-up of courses for tournaments. The work that he has started will enable the LGU to go forward with their future plans and developments.
One of the elements of these plans is the appointment of Susan Simpson as the Deputy Secretary (Operations) and this underlines the LGU’s commitment to reinforce the administrative skills, particularly on the golf operation side, of the secretariat.
Susan joins the LGU from the SLGA where for the last four years she has been the Secretary. She studied French at St Andrews University and prior to joining the SLGA, spent some time in administration at Kirriemuir Golf Club.
She is a keen golfer, a member of Kirriemuir and the St Rule clubs, and represented Angus County between 1994 and 1998. She was born in Carnoustie and currently lives in Kirriemuir with her husband Evan and their 10 year-old daughter Chloe.
Susan joins the LGU on 12th November which gives a period of overlap before Greg finishes later in the month.
