Introducing Golf PEI’s new Executive Director, Sam MacPhail

Golf PEI and its board of directors are pleased to announce that Sam MacPhail has been selected as the organization’s next Executive Director, effective May 16, 2022. 

Sam was previously employed as the Policy and Communications Manager with the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce. He has also held roles in business consulting and formerly worked in the Office of the Premier of PEI. Before that, Sam spent his youth and adolescence working in the golf industry.

He graduated from the University of Prince Edward Island’s Faculty of Business and was elected valedictorian for the class of 2020. He considers himself highly resourceful and entrepreneurial-minded, having been selected as one of Atlantic Canada’s 30 Under 30 by Atlantic Business Magazine. An avid golfer, Sam is a 5 handicap and tries to play as often as possible.

“I look forward to working with Golf PEI’s members and board of directors to continue growing the industry in PEI,” said Sam MacPhail, incoming executive director. “Golf, as a tourism product, has contributed greatly to the province’s economy, and all indicators show that it will be a busy summer for our Island golf courses.”
