Ken started invitational Golf Tournaments in the early 1990’s at Skelmorlie GC, inviting various celebrity friends of his from the world of sport. He has enjoyed doing this as a thank you to the club for his longstanding ‘country membership’.
Ken still continues to support the club with various sponsorship offerings and his always popular Presidents Day that Ken and many of his friends still attend whenever they can.
The major junior competition at SGC – the Ken MacLeod Masters – is also a very well attended annual event, with Ken providing many wonderful golfing prizes for the clubs enthusiastic youngsters.
Over the years Ken has been and continues to be a generous benefactor to the club.
Ken has personally raised the clubs profile through the many celebrities that he has introduced to Skelmorlie Golf Club over the years . His good friend, musician and songwriter Graham Lyle has written a song about Ken’s life and family in the Caribbean, you can see his video on You Tube or via the link above – indeed Ken is always keen to take the microphone and share a song or two himself, especially when enjoying the company of his many friends during his social occasions at the golf club.
Ken now spends most of his time in the Caribbean with his wife Sandra and their son Auston who is the owner operator of a five star dive operation on St Kitts. Ken trained in and has extensive experience of all departments of the hotel industry, and has managed hotels since the age of 21, indeed most of them four and five star hotels in a wide range of international locations, including hotels in the UK, Jamaica, St Kitts, Nevis, North Caicos, and Providenciales.
Ken left the UK for the Caribbean in 1975, and today is still managing a hotel, the Sibonne Beach Hotel, Providenciales,Turks and Caicos.
Skelmorlie Golf Club is proud to have Ken MacLeod as its Honorary President and very grateful for the kindness and generosity he has shared with Skelmorlie Golf Club over a long number of years and the club looks forward to continuing our association with Ken for many years to come.
We also of course wish Ken and his family all the best for the future.
