It is with deep sadness and shock that we have to announce that John Young passed away quite suddenly on Boxing Day.
John was a stalwart of Kent Golf having served the county as a team manager, as County Secretary and as a Director. John was a larger than life character known widely across the county through golf – as a player, administrator, volunteer on the course or through the GCMA. He was integral to the development of Kent Golf over the past 10 or so years, having been involved in the incorporation of the county body and the unification of the former Kent Golf Union with Kent County Ladies’ Golf Association. John also acted, for many years, as Kent Golf’s Welfare and Safeguarding Officer. Having stood down as a director of Kent Golf in September, John was accorded the title of Vice President in recognition of his services to the county.
He will be sorely missed as a colleague, a mentor and a friend by many. Our thoughts are with his wife, Erica, and his children and their families at this very sad time.
