Hamish Grey, the chief executive of Scottish Golf, has left the organisation after it was agreed between the parties.
Grey, who was previously in the same role at the Scottish Golf Union (SGU), assumed the role upon the amalgamation of the SGU and Scottish Ladies' Golfing Association, getting the nod ahead of the chief operating officer of the SLGA Karin Sharp.
"Scottish Golf is in good health and has an excellent base" - Hamish Grey
"I have enjoyed my time in Scottish Golf immensely and look back on my time with great pride," said Grey. "I have been very fortunate to work with many dedicated people, volunteer and executive, throughout this time and their commitment to Scottish Golf has been an inspiration.
“Amalgamation is now achieved and the new body established. Scottish Golf is in good health and has an excellent base from which the new Board can consider the future strategy for golf in Scotland. It is therefore timely for me to seek a new challenge."
Eleanor Cannon, chair of Scottish Golf, said: “Hamish leaves Scottish Golf with our thanks for a significant contribution to the game in Scotland over a number of years and with our best wishes for the future.
"The new Board of Scottish Golf will engage our clubs and our members and put in place the leadership we believe is required to help bring about the change we want to see in the game in Scotland.
“Our priority is to recruit a new chief executive and we have started that process. In the meantime, Andy Salmon, deputy chief executive, will report to me. The excellent work undertaken by the wider team at Scottish Golf goes on and we look forward to working with them.”
