Services to remember Robert Reid, the owner of the Sand Point Golf Course, have been announced.
Reid, well known in the Ottawa Valley for his business abilities and charitable efforts, passed away suddenly on Saturday, December 9th at the age of 66.
Very respected in the community, Reid will be remembered fondly by a large family and many, many friends.
In the Spring of 2015 Reid became the owner of what was then the Arnprior Golf Club, saving the historic club from possible closure and extending the legacy of his long-time family involvement with golf.
Having dealt with Mr. Reid on numerous occasions, including a lengthy and thoughtful discussion on his plans for the golf course soon after acquiring it, the entire team at Flagstick Golf Magazine wishes to pass on our condolences to his friends and family on this sudden loss.
