Michael Kelly appointed secretary of the Durham County Golf Union

Michael Kelly has been appointed as the new Durham County Golf Union secretary following Jonathan Ward’s departure.

“I realise it is an immense honour and a privilege to be appointed as secretary,” said Michael. “I will endeavour to serve the executive committee, the clubs and all golfers in County Durham as diligently and professionally as I possibly can.

“Jonathan has been an exceptional county secretary over the last seven years and I aim to continue, and build upon, all the hard work he has done for the union. I’m sure I speak for all those involved in golf in the county when I wish Jonathan all the very best in his new role with England Golf.”
