Sandy Jones to speak at All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf annual charity dinner

Former Chief Executive of The PGA, Sandy Jones, is to be the guest of honour at the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf’s annual charity dinner.

Jones, who was succeeded by Robert Maxfield earlier this year, became Chief Executive of The PGA in 1991 after first joining the organisation as Scottish region secretary in 1991. Under his leadership, The PGA played a significant role in the development of golf, not only in Great Britain and Ireland, but around the world.

Despite standing down as Chief Executive, Jones is retained by The PGA as Executive President, and is also President of the Golf Foundation, and Chairman of the PGAs of Europe and The Ryder Cup Trust.

Taking place on Monday 4 December, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Golf’s annual dinner is hosted by Baroness Nye of Lambeth in the House of Lords and brings together Members of Parliament, Peers and golf supporters from across the UK to celebrate the sport and raise money for charity.

The announcement was made by Group Co-Chair and Member of Parliament for North Warwickshire, Craig Tracey MP. He said “I am delighted that Sandy Jones will be the guest speaker at the Group’s annual charity dinner. Sandy has a great deal of experience in the sport, and I am sure that Members are looking forward to hearing him speak about his career, and give his thoughts on 2017 in golf.”

A limited number of places to the dinner remain available here.
