The Board of Scottish Golf today (Thursday 20 October) announces that Andy Salmon, Deputy CEO and Development Director, is leaving the organisation. This position has been agreed between both parties.

Andy Salmon commented: “To be tasked with developing the sport I love at the home of golf was both a huge privilege and an enormous responsibility. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Scottish Golf and look back on my time with great pride. I have been very fortunate to work with many dedicated people, volunteer and executive, throughout this time and have made many friends.

“However, nothing lasts forever and as the new organisation strives to take the sport to the next stage, it is timely for me to seek a new challenge. I wish the Board, CEO and staff every success in the future.”

Eleanor Cannon, Chair of Scottish golf, said: “Andy leaves Scottish Golf with our thanks for a significant contribution to the game in Scotland over a number of years and with our best wishes for the future.”

Scottish Golf confirmed there would be no immediate plans to replace the Deputy CEO role, and the CEO Blane Dodds is putting in place appropriate management arrangements.
