The Jamaican golfing community is mourning the death of golf instructor/teacher Herman Marsh.
According to the Jamaica Golf Association (JGA), Marsh was integral to the ‘In The City Junior Golf Programme’ that was run by the JGA several years ago.
Described as being patient, kind, and deeply respected by both the students and teachers at the inner-city schools where he taught the sport, Marsh was also a member of the coaching team at the University of Technology.
He also taught many persons to play the sport outside of those organised programmes.
“The Jamaica Golf Association (JGA) executive, the Caymanas Golf Club family, and members of the JGA are saddened by the passing of golf professional, Herman Marsh,” the JGA said in a statement Monday (January 17).
“During the past three years, he was involved in the Insport Summer Camp, which was conducted at the Caymanas Golf Course and aimed at youngsters in the adjoining communities.
“Up to late 2021, Marsh was the chief instructor for the Insport Golf Programme in Kingston and Montego Bay. Marsh was responsible for the sessions that were conducted at Caymanas Golf Course for the inner city youths twice per week.
“He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We at the JGA extend condolences to his family, friends, and associates, and pray that his soul will rest in peace.”
