Golf NSW appoints Participation and Programs Manager

Golf NSW is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Robb to the new role of Participation and Programs Manager.

Mr Robb brings to Golf NSW a strong background in Workplace Health and Safety, Information Technology and Human Resources Information Systems after a 20-year career at Western Sydney University.

"Golf NSW is thrilled to have Andrew join our Golf Operations team. He is a highly respected golf administrator and a valued mentor to golfers of all abilities. Andrew's appointment will help Golf NSW fulfil key strategic initiatives including building participation in the game and increasing membership levels for all affiliated clubs across New South Wales.”

Mr Robb has held several administrative positions at club, district and state level in his 25-year involvement in the game. He is the current Golf NSW Men's State Team Manager and a member of the Golf NSW Match and Rules Committee. He is a former Club Delegate for Metropolitan Zone C and a former Golf NSW Councillor.

"I'm looking forward to working with clubs and districts to help them implement positive changes that will deliver increased participation in golf across all demographics,” Mr Robb said.

Mr Robb is the current Club Captain at Glenmore Heritage Valley Golf Club, and when he finds the time to play, he manages to maintain a healthy plus 3 handicap.
