PGA North regrets to report the death of former Ashton-under-Lyne professional Colin Boyle at the age of 60.
He retired on health grounds in 2016 after working for 29 years at the Lancashire club.
Boyle began his career as assistant at Withington then was appointed head pro at Fairfield for seven years before settling at Ashton-under-Lyne.
His son Michael, who succeeded him, said: “He made quite a big impact on golf in the local community and although he did not play a great deal he was a big Manchester United fan.”
Boyle is also survived by his wife Karen and daughters Lisa and Laura who works behind the scenes in television's Coronation Street.
The funeral has been arranged for Tuesday, November 13, at 12pm at Dukinfield Crematorium.
