Ernie Poole Passes Away

Posted by: on 15 April 2020

Late last week Russley Life Member and long time friend of Canterbury Golf Ernie Poole passed away at the age of 87 due to natural causes.

Ernie was widely regarded as an "encylopedia of golf knowledge" with an excellent understanding of the rules of golf, course rating, handicapping and the like.

In terms of Canterbury Golf he made major contributions to the CGRA, Course Rating, and in recent times statistical analysis of golf club membership trends and issues.

A memorial service for Ernie will be held in the chapel at St Andrew’s College, when the lock-down is lifted.
