New golf club man­ager

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

For­mer na­tional Sin­ga­pore golf coach Paul Ri­ley is Hor­sham Golf Club’s new gen­eral man­ager and di­rec­tor of golf.

The club’s board has con­firmed his ap­point­ment in the dual role af­ter an ex­ten­sive re­cruit­ment and in­ter­view process.

Mr Ri­ley, in charge of Hong Kong Jockey Club’s golf­ing op­er­a­tions, will shift to Aus­tralia with his fam­ily this month and take up his new role on June 18.

Mr Ri­ley has an ad­vanced sta­tus in golf man­age­ment with Aus­tralian Pro­fes­sional Golfers As­so­ci­a­tion and is a mem­ber of Club Man­agers As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia, Europe and Hong Kong.

He is also on Hong Kong Pro­fes­sional Golfers As­so­ci­a­tion’s board and the brother of for­mer Aus­tralia Open win­ner and tele­vi­sion com­men­ta­tor Wayne Ri­ley.

On ac­cept­ing the ap­point­ment Paul Ri­ley said he was ex­cited to be join­ing the Hor­sham club.

“It is an ex­tremely well re­garded golf course and with its modern fa­cil­i­ties there is an enor­mous op­por­tu­nity to re-es­tab­lish it as one of Aus­tralia’s go-to cour­ses in the broader golf­ing com­mu­nity,” he said.
