Golf NB announces the departure of Executive Director

FREDERICTON, NB: The Board of Directors of Golf New Brunswick (Golf NB) today announced that the current Executive Director, Luke Lacey will be leaving the organization on May 9th, 2023 to pursue a role in the United States.
Joe Sullivan, President of Golf NB, said, “This is a bittersweet announcement as we are very happy that Luke is taking another step in his golf career, but sad to see him go.”
Since his time at Golf NB, Luke has been instrumental in carrying out Golf NB’s operations and services.

He successfully developed and led programs that encouraged newcomers to the sport and made it inclusive to all. His many accomplishments include developing the New to Golf Series, launching Golf New Brunswick’s 2023-2025 Strategic Plan focused on Golf for Everyone, unveiling the association’s new brand and identity, and improving how we work with our member facilities and industry partners. Through his efforts and leadership, Golf NB represents almost 8,900 individual golfers and 51 member facilities. He has been instrumental to the success of our association throughout the years and his experience, knowledge, and leadership will be truly missed as he continues his career in golf.

“I am truly grateful for the opportunities that Golf NB has provided to me, “said Luke. “I would not be where I am today without the support of the organization and its past and current staff and directors. The decision to move on was extremely difficult, but I am pleased with where Golf NB is now and know that the programming and events are in great hands with our President and Board of Directors, and amazing volunteers across the province. I believe that now is the time to solidify Golf NB’s future by making room for new leadership with fresh ideas and a new direction to take Golf NB.“

“We will miss Luke, but he leaves the association in a strong position for continued growth, and we thank him for his leadership. The Golf NB Board of Directors and I are currently formulating a transition plan as we begin the search for a new Executive Director. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns I would encourage you to contact me or Jared Legacy, who will be handling day-to-day activities as Interim Executive Director & Administration Manager.” said Joe.
