Former Swiss PGA President Bruno Griss Passes Away1 min read

Posted on: 23rd Feb 2023

It is with great sadness that we have to unexpectedly say goodbye to our long-time member and former President Bruno Griss. Bruno had been a member of the PGA since 1978 and, together with the board of directors at that time, was decisively responsible for the further development of the Swiss PGA. Together with those responsible at the BASPO, he developed the Y+S program to make the education as a golf instructor even possible. With the launch of the 3-year apprentice program, the Swiss PGA was officially accepted into the PGAs of Europe [now CPG] in 1998.

For 10 years he was junior coach for the regional team and for another 2 years the coach of the Swiss women’s national team. From 2011 to April 2017, he served as President of the Swiss PGA, continued as an expert and leader of Y+S courses in Magglingen and spent more than 30 years as a golf teacher at GC Zumikon.

We all appreciated Bruno as a reliable, helpful and experienced golf instructor, but also as a good friend. His professional competence as well as his kind, generous and calm manner were highly appreciated throughout the Swiss golf scene. We have lost a respected personality with him – Bruno Griss was an important pillar of our golf community.

Our heartfelt condolences and sympathy go to the entire bereaved family, to whom our thoughts go in these difficult hours and days.
