It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Ces Morrell, a longstanding member and great supporter of the NZGCSA, the former superintendent of the Otumoetai Golf Club, a club that he gave his heart and soul to.


Ces was a wonderful greenkeeper with a passion for his job and what he produced , a wonderful teacher of trainees Ces was always keen to share his knowledge and always eager to learn more himself. Never one to say too much about his achievements he was a very proud man who went about his work with a pride and great passion.


A Life Member of  The Central North Island Turf Managers Association, regional delegate to the NZGCSA, Ces has given so much to the  industry, a stalwart at conferences and seminars throughout the country Ces was recognized by the NZGCSA with the Distinguished Service Award of which there have only been 7 recipients, a fine honor for a fine man and an accolade that he was very proud of .


Ces's last battle he fought with the same dignity and courage that he lived his life by ,  he will be sadly missed by us all, our thoughts go out to his wonderful wife Denise and all of his family RIP "smelle"
