On behalf of the American Cancer Society and all those touched by cancer, we are honored to celebrate the memory of David Hunter. David was a PGA Professional and Director of Golf at The Club at Morningside country club. He was born in Scotland April 22, 1958 to parents Donald and Jean (Ritchie) Hunter. David grew up in Newcastle, England where at the age of 9 he began playing golf at Gosforth Golf Club, his father's club, where David would practice while waiting for his father to drink a pint with buddies in the clubhouse. The practice paid off as David became a Class A member of the British PGA in 1979 and played on the European and South African Tour from 1980-1984. He came to the United States in 1984 to "test" his game and played the mini tours in Florida before becoming First Assistant Golf Professional in 1988 at Columbus Country Club in Columbus, Ohio. He became a Class A member of the American PGA and the Director of Golf at New Albany Country Club in New Albany, Ohio in 1991 where he worked for 15 years and discovered his true calling as an accomplished and beloved teacher of the game. He was Southern Ohio PGA Teacher of the year in 2002-2004 and recognized by Golf Magazine as one of "America's Most Outstanding Teachers" in 2003, recognized by Golf Digest as one of the "Best Teachers in Ohio" 2003-2004 and nominated for National Teacher of the Year in 2005. He was teacher and Coach to several PGA and LPGA Tour players along with nationally ranked collegiate and junior players and a Master Staff member of Callaway Golf Company. In 2006 David journeyed west to the desert of Borrego Springs, California where he became Director of Golf and General Manager at Montesoro Golf and Social Club (aka Rams Hill) thru 2010 and assisted in design and construction of a new Tom Fazio Course. David moved on to teach at Scratch Junior Golf in Poway, CA and at Indian Wells Country Club in Indian Wells, CA before landing what he thought was the perfect job once again as Director of Golf at The Club at Morningside in Rancho Mirage, CA in 2012. Golf was truly David's world. Other than sharing hilarious stories with family and friends, Deep Sea fishing in Cabo, roasted potatoes, vodka on the rocks, his own style of dancing (after the vodka) or a glass of red "to settle me stomach" …there was nothing that brought him more joy than helping others improve their game. David would be so honored to have you join in the fight against cancer. Thank you for your support.
