It is with deep sadness we announce that former Golf NSW Council Member Robert Scarr passed away at 3.30am this morning after a brief stay in palliative care. Bob was the 'voice' for the Hunter River District and supported the community for over ten years. He became a Life Member of the District in late 2016, served as its President from 2006 to 2012, and continued his involvement with the Association taking an active interest in developing juniors and local clubs.
Bob was elected to the NSW Golf Association Council in 2007 and continued his involvement as a Golf NSW Council Member post amalgamation from 2010 until he retired in 2013. He was instrumental in managing the volunteers at the NSW Open when held at The Vintage Golf Club from 2008-2010.
He will be sorely missed by his family and larger golf family.
Funeral details will be posted on the HRDGA District website when available.
