The South African Disabled Golf Association (SADGA) has announced board member Craig Moorgas as its new executive director.
In the newly-created position Moorgas will occupy a multi-faceted role and essentially become the ‘face’ of SADGA.
To this end, he will speak to the media on behalf of SADGA during the Canon SA Disabled Golf Open and brief them on any noteworthy happenings within the association. Furthermore, he’ll also be charged with finding corporate sponsorships.
Moorgas is no stranger to representing SADGA within South African golf having been appointed to the GolfRSA board of directors last year, a role he continues to occupy.
Moorgas hopes to play his part in helping disabled golf continue to flourish in the future.
‘I have been involved with SADGA for a number of years now, so to be appointed as executive director is a great honour,’ Moorgas said.
‘I’d like to say thank you to the board of directors for entrusting me with the position and I cannot wait to work closely with my fellow SADGA colleagues to take this already world-class association to even greater heights.’
SADGA chairman Enver Hassen remarked that Moorgas’ extensive experience within disabled sport will prove incredibly valuable.
‘Besides golf, Craig has also done amazing work within South African wheelchair basketball and his knowledge of disabled sport in South Africa will certainly be a great asset to SADGA,’ Hassen added.
‘In Craig we not only have someone who cares deeply about disabled golf but who will fight tooth and nail to raise the profile of SADGA.
‘On behalf of everyone at SADGA, congratulations on your appointment, Craig, and I wish you every success during your tenure.’
