The Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association has announced the appointment of Euan Dougal as its director of golf and Scott Cowx as head teaching professional.
“Euan and Scott are among the best at what they do in the golf business,” said Rob Roxborough, general manager of Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association, in a statement.
“Euan’s leadership background in Scotland, Ontario, and Arizona makes him an ideal fit for what we’re trying to do at our facility, and Scott, recognized throughout the world as one of golf’s leading instructors, will help continue to strengthen our golf offering,” he said.
Dougal, a native of Scotland, has worked at many of the top clubs in Canada, including Beacon Hall, Bigwin Island, Eagles Nest, and Coppinwood, before heading to the U.S. to lead the Silverleaf Club and Scottsdale National. Dougal will help engage both existing members and new members to the club.
“I’ve long been an admirer of the courses that make up Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association,” said Dougal.
“To be able to return to Canada and help lead and reinvigorate such a great golf environment is really an exciting opportunity. I’m thrilled to be a part of it,” he said.
Cowx, noted for helping guide the career of PGA Tour winner Mackenzie Hughes, previously worked as director of instruction at Hamilton Golf and Country Club while building Scott Cowx Certified, a program to develop golf teachers throughout the world.
The winner of the PGA of Canada’s 2019 George Knudson Teacher of the Year award, Cowx has worked the likes of Edoardo Molinari, Mike Weir, and Grant Waite.
“Devil’s Pulpit has two of the best courses in Canada, and one of the most impressive practice facilities to go along with it,” said Cowx. “It is an inspirational place to help golfers improve their abilities and a great place to help connect with the club’s members.”
Having acquired Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association earlier this year, the leadership team has added a new executive chef, Michael Cutajar, formerly of the National Golf Club of Canada, as well as food and beverage managers Scott Tye and Nasir Sayyar.
“The goal is to cement DPGA as an industry leader that creates great membership experiences,” says Roxborough. “That starts with golf, but extends throughout the operation.”
