Rick Thain

Rick’s involvement with the Manitoba Golf Association (M.G.A.) dates back to 1978 when he became an M.G.A. Council Representative for the City of Winnipeg Municipal Golf Courses. He remained in this capacity until 2000 serving on many and various committees and executive positions.  During that time and continuing to the present, Rick has provided volunteer service to the former Manitoba Golf Association and Golf Manitoba for the past 40 years.

The following are some of the highlights of Rick’s extensive volunteer career with the Manitoba Golf Association and Golf Manitoba:

All of these extra-curricular activities were performed while Rick was employed with the City of Winnipeg as the Superintendent of the Municipal Golf Courses where he managed the administration, financing affairs, club and maintenance operations of the Kildonan Park, Windsor Park, Crescent Drive, John Blumberg and Harbour View Golf Courses.

After 33 successful years with the City of Winnipeg, Rick retired in January of 2005. He is now enjoying life with his wife Angie and their son Sean. Rick still remains as an active volunteer with Golf Manitoba.

Golf Manitoba is very pleased to honor Mr. Rick Thain as the Distinguished Service Award Recipient for 2018.
