Last month, Paul Noble worked his last day at Eagle, bringing to an end a remarkable tenure of 30 years of dedicated service to the Golf Club industry.
Over the years, Paul built up a sterling reputation amongst Golf Club secretaries, professionals and co-workers, largely due to his memorable, larger-than-life character. Bursting with mannerisms, Paul was dedicated to helping Golf Clubs with their scorecards, course guides, diaries and everything in between. He was also a tireless worker internally, always on the lookout for an opportunity to tell one of his infamous anecdotes.
With the news, Paul commented, “I have loved working for Eagle and playing my part in the industry. I have some great memories and have made some great friends over the years. There’s always a time when you know it’s right to hang up the boots and I know I have reached that stage. I wish everyone at Eagle and who I have worked with the very best in the future.”
Co-worker Phil McInley, who has worked with Paul for all 30 of those years, commented, “Paul’s dedication to the cause will be very difficult to replace. There is no doubt that Eagle would not be where it is today without his efforts. Whilst the office will miss him, so will many of the Club Managers who boosted their income with the help of Paul’s horse racing tips.”
For both Paul and for Eagle, the exit means pastures new.
Pastures, quite literally, for Paul, who will be spending more time at his cherished allotment (pictured) in between trips to The Caterham Club for a spot of pool and England Test Cricket highlights.
For Eagle, the vacuum creates an opportunity for new blood to come in and flourish, hopefully building on the foundations Paul created and taking the company and its clients to new heights. With the recent announcement of Eagle partnership with Tacit, there is no doubt that whilst one legend has now moved on, it is exciting times ahead for all.
