Matt Williams to Leave KCGA

KCGA Offices — After three seasons with the Kansas City Golf Association, KCGA Executive Director Matt Williams announced he will be leaving the KCGA.  Matt will be taking the Executive Director position of the Georgia State Golf Association.

“Today is a day of mixed emotions for my family and I,” explained Williams.  “We are so grateful of the opportunity afforded us by the Kansas City Golf Association and so very thankful for the friendships and relationships we have forged here in Kansas City.  Honestly, when I took this position, I thought I would be here for a long time.”  Williams continued by saying, “I inherited a gem of a golf association when I came to Kansas City and I hope to leave it in just a little better shape than where I found it.  I would like to thank the board and executive committee for their leadership over the past three season as well as the volunteers and staff for their tireless efforts in improving the game of golf in Kansas City.” 

The Kansas City Golf Association is already working on finding the next leader for amateur golf in the region.  Current KCGA president, Taylor McCann, had this to say about the KCGA’s transition plan.

“From my discussions with Matt, the Georgia State Golf Association is a wonderful opportunity for him and his family. The KCGA appreciates Matt’s hard work and dedication over the past three seasons and we wish him and his family the very best. Matt will be with us through the middle of November to ensure that we will be able to fulfill all of this season’s competitive obligations.

The Executive Committee has already begun discussions regarding the future of our organization. In my opinion, our association is in a great position to attract a talented leader. The KCGA is widely known for its professionalism and remarkable support team of volunteers. The association is healthy financially and has a strong competition program in place. I am extremely confident that we will be able to attract an excellent leader for our organization and remain very excited about the KCGA’s future. Thank you all for your continued support and service to the game in our area.”
