Things went so well the first time around that the Québec Golf Federation will look to their current President for another term. The conclusion of the 97th Annual General Meeting of the association came on March 25 at Le Fontainebleau in Blainville, QC and saw the re-appointment of Robert Bissonette.
Bissonette, a member of the Rivermead Golf Club in Gatineau brings more than 25 years of volunteer experience to the role. He has been on the Golf Québec Board of Directors since 2011.
“Golf Québec is a leader in the golf industry,” mentioned Robert Bissonnette as he mraked the renewal of his role with the Quebec Golf Federation. “Aside from introducing new golfers to the game, our mandate is also to increase the number of golf rounds played by existing golfers. To achieve these goals, we challenged ourselves to build new golfing opportunities in the coming years,” he added.
“We are convinced that by combining the efforts of all provincial stakeholders and supporting them with a larger number of Golf Community Coaches, we will be successful at promoting more interest in our game, enticing more sports participants to discover or rediscover golf, and contribute to generating more attendance on golf courses. Close collaboration with other associations that are promoting and developing golf in our industry will be essential”, concluded the President.
