Chief Executive leaving England Golf

It has been announced that David Joy, the Chief Executive of England Golf, is to leave the organisation at the end of this year to become the Chief Executive of British Canoeing.

Joy, who joined England Golf in April 2013, following the merger of the former English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association, will continue in his position until 1 January 2016.

England Golf Chairman Graham Yates said: “I must thank David Joy for his enthusiasm and support for England Golf and its aspirations. Significant progress has been achieved during his 2½ years in office, particularly with the launch of the Strategic Plan for England Golf, Raising Our Game.

“David will remain in office until 31 December and the company will continue ‘business as normal’ until a new appointment is made. Arrangements are being put in hand in this respect with immediate effect.”
