20 November 2020 Announcement

PAT MURPHY (1948-2020)

The Association is saddened to report the passing of former BIGGA Chairman, Pat Murphy, who has died at the age of 72 after a long illness. Pat, who was course manager at Shipley Golf Club, was chairman of BIGGA in 1997, a period which saw the development of BIGGA House, in fact it was Pat who literally put the first spade in the ground at the beginning of the building process. 

The Association sends sincere condolences to Pat’s family and friends. 


Pat Murphy’s funeral will be held on Friday, 4 December, 10.50am at Nab Wood Crematorium, Shipley BD18 4BG.

Due to the limited numbers able to attend the funeral, some friends and colleagues will be positioned on the crematorium driveway from 10.20am to pay their respects.
