UXBRIDGE— It is the end of an era at Golf Ontario as after 13 years, Director of Rules and Competitions, Dave Colling, has announced his retirement effective September 30.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my 13 years with Golf Ontario, but I am now looking forward to spending more time, especially in the summer, with my wife, children and grandchildren,” said Colling.
Colling and his staff were responsible for running Golf Ontario’s provincial championships, which were always top class and regarded as some of the best in the industry. Colling was instrumental in building the stature of Golf Ontario’s championships. He modernized the way Golf Ontario tournaments are now run, including the implementation of online registration and live scoring.
The announcement caps a career spanning more than 40-years in the golf industry. Colling also spent time as Executive Director of the Canadian PGA (PGA of Canada) and founded Ontario Golf News.
“We can’t thank Dave enough for his commitment to Golf Ontario and the sport in general over many, many years and wish him the very best,” added Mike Kelly, Golf Ontario Executive Director.
Colling was a dedicated member of the Golf Ontario team and always went above and beyond. While Golf Ontario is sad to see Colling go, we thank him for all of his contributions and wish him a happy retirement.
