Stewart Fenton has formally announced his resignation as Golf Management Australia (GMA) President and will be replaced by Andrew Gay of Royal Adelaide Golf Club in the interim.

After almost 20 years in the golf industry and nine years at the club, Fenton has proclaimed his departure from Huntingdale Golf Club and subsequently the golf industry after accepting the role of CEO at Royal South Yarra Lawn Tennis Club (RSYLTC).

“Whilst I am extremely sad to be leaving the golf industry, RSYLTC presents an amazing opportunity for me, which I am really excited about with some big plans for the future,” he said.

“Andrew (Gay) is the current SA President and has been on the GMA Board for many years and will do an outstanding job as President.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Board of GMA for their support over my past two years as President. We are indeed fortunate to have such a wonderful group of people that are so committed to serving the membership of GMA for the benefit of golf,” Fenton added.

With extensive industry knowledge, commencing as general manager at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club in 2007, Andrew Gay said he is excited to take on the role as President for the GMA.

“I look forward to working with the GMA Directors to ensure deliver the board’s strategic initiatives for the betterment of golf club management and the industry in general,”

“The GMA Board are appreciative of the work and commitment shown by Stewart during his time on the board and wish him every success in his new role.”

The president is appointed by the directors at the AGM which will be held during the GMA National Conference in Adelaide October 8-12.
