Golf Australia announces resignation of CEO

Golf Australia today announced the resignation of Tony Hallam as CEO. Anne Lenagan, Chairman of Golf Australia, said Tony, as inaugural CEO, successfully led the implementation of the merger of the Australian Golf Union and Women’s Golf Australia in January 2006 into Golf Australia as the national sporting organisation for golf. He is to be commended for his commitment to defining Golf Australia s goals and building the organisation. Solid foundations have been laid and he has created a strong team that will continue the good work. We wish Tony well. Mark Peters, CEO, Australian Sports Commission, It has been a period of significant change since the inception of Golf Australia; Tony has been an excellent leader as the inaugural CEO and developing Golf Australia into the national sporting organisation for golf. He has done a terrific job and we wish him well for his future, and continued success for Golf Australia. Hallam said, I am proud to have led Golf Australia through its early teething stages into a relevant brand promoting the game s core values, building financial sustainability and laying the groundwork for several upcoming announcements in the coming months. In particular I have enjoyed my part in outcomes such as the resurrection of the Women’s Australian Open, the rejuvenation of the Australian Open, commercialisation of our business, the re-introduction of the AIS golf program and the creation of the Karrie Webb Series. I leave Golf Australia with a mature identity recognised by golfers nationally, internationally and professionally. I wish to thank my team who have been tremendous and wish the new Board well. Hallam will be leaving at the end of the month and Anne Lenagan will be acting CEO effective 1 July until a new appointment is made.
