Andrew Turnbull, who has been in the role of managing secretary for just over three years, is standing down to pursue other interests back in Higher Education. 

Jane Tough, former assistant secretary, takes on the mantle of managing secretary, with effect from April 1. In addition to her experience in the Club office, Jane is also a highly accomplished player and passionate member, with nine Edzell Ladies club championship titles to her name.

Jane said: “I am delighted to take on the role of managing secretary at Edzell Golf Club. We have lots of exciting plans for the year ahead and I look forward to serving the membership in my new job.”

Carol Webster, wife of club professional Alastair, will support Jane in her new role.

In further changes, David Speed takes on the club captaincy from the incumbent of the past two years, Ron Caithness, following the club’s AGM at the end of March.  Former club secretary, Ian Farquhar, is returning to take on the vice-captain’s badge of office.  David Johnston and Nick Yates are newly elected to the committee and Trevor Spry replaces David Speed in the match & handicap secretary’s position.
