The Board of the Leongatha Golf Club has been deeply saddened by the passing yesterday of a popular member, Kevin Castwood. Kevin was aged 72.
In the little over a decade Kev has been a member of the club (he joined in May 2009) he has made a great contribution to it. He was a former Men’s Vice Captain and Captain, former Green’s Committee member, a current member of the Men’s Golf committee and was also a Board Member for the last six years. Kevin’s working career was in the human resources field and this experience, combined with his golfing experiences, made him a valuable member of the Board. He was of great help to me personally, and to the club in this role.
Kev was also a regular attendee at club working bees and social functions. He took an obvious pride in seeing the course in great condition and the successes of the club.
Kev was a competent golfer in his own right and features on the honour boards in the clubhouse. He was deceptively long off the tee, and possessed one of the best short games in the club.
We extend our condolences to Rosie and family at this time of loss.
