Nadene McBride Obituary, Death – We are in a state of tremendous sadness as a direct result of the demise of Bill Mitchell BEM, one of our volunteers who had been associated with us for the longest amount of time and was the most dedicated. Over the course of more than 40 years, Bill educated, developed, and mentored hundreds of people in the fields of handicapping, course rating, greenkeeping, and environmental stewardship, both in Scotland and all over the world. These fields include golf course rating, greenkeeping, and environmental stewardship.
His influence was clearly noticeable in each and every one of these different realms. Both Chairman of the Scottish Golf Union and Director of Golf Services have been positions that Bill has held in the past. In the past, he had been responsible for these responsibilities. In addition to that, he has served on the Committee for National Golf Course Ratings (CONGU), the Committee for European Golf Association Handicapping and Course Ratings, and the Committee for United States Golf Association (USGA) Course Ratings. In point of fact, he was the very first individual from the UK to get a personal invitation to become a member of the latter committee.
In addition to this, Bill has the distinction of being the first person from the United Kingdom to get a personal invitation to join the United States Golf Association. This honor was bestowed upon Bill by his peers in the association. In addition to this, Bill has the honor of being the very first individual from the United Kingdom to receive a personal invitation to become a member of the latter as a result of his affiliation with the former.
Everyone who knew him at Scottish Golf and in the wider golfing community throughout the world will grieve his passing terribly. His passing will be greatly mourned by golfers all over the world. His death will be mourned with profound sadness all across the world. His life will be remembered with great affection. Bill will be laid to rest on the 16th of June, on Friday, at eleven o’clock in the morning. The service will take place in the morning. Funeral services will be held at the Johnstone High Parish Church on the day in question. Following that, we continued our trek by arriving at the Kilbarchan graveyard at twelve o’clock in the afternoon.
