PGA of Ontario Remembers Anthony Griffi
August 8, 2020
Tony Griffi in Memoriam (1967-2020)
We are saddened to announce the recent passing of PGA of Alberta Member Anthony (Tony) Griffi. Tony joined the PGA of Canada in 1988 and in 2019 reached his 25-Year milestone as a Class A Member. He was most recently the Head Golf Professional at Gilwood GC in Slave Lake, Alberta and before that was the Head Professional at Trestle Creek Golf Resort. He passed away at the age of 53.
Tony’s lifelong affair with golf began when he was 10 years old, in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario. As soon as he could, he went into an apprenticeship to be a Golf Professional, at the Stratford Country Club. He also attended University, studying electrical engineering, but didn’t like it and decided to drop it in favour of the Golf Pro option. He made the move out west to Alberta with his wife in 2014.
