Stephen Machin (President 2023).
We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of our President Stephen Machin.
Stephen joined the GGU Executive in late 2008 as the representative of Cowglen G C. He became the A Team Manager in 2009 and continued in this role till he was asked to be Vice President by Jim Wilson in 2020. Stephen followed Jim as President in October 2022 where he enjoyed his role with enthusiasm and kindness.
Stephen played his golf at Cowglen G C , Glasgow G C and Royal Troon , where he won the Club Championship in 2022. He secured the GGU Matchplay on two occasions 2011 and 2012 and the Strokeplay back in 1987. After he turned 55 he continued his success as a Senior and won the GGU Seniors Championships in 2021.
He was a stalwart of Glasgow A Team, playing for many years in the West of Scotland Leagues and representing Glasgow at the Area Team Championships while also being the team manager and Seniors Area Team Championships recently.
Most importantly our thoughts are with his wife and family at this time. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
