Doug Roxburgh

Doug Roxburgh has set a standard in the region's amateur golf world that will most likely not be matched. He won the BC Junior Amateur in 1969 and 1970, and the Canadian Junior Amateur in 1970. He won the BC Amateur in 1969, which was the first of his record 13 victories in this championship. He attended the University of Oregon on a golf scholarship but transferred to complete his degree at Simon Fraser University (in Burnaby, BC). He lost a playoff for the Canadian Amateur Championship in 1971, and then won the first of his four Canadian Amateur titles in 1972, repeating in 1974, 1982 and 1988. He is a seven-time member of the Canadian World Amateur Team, and a 19-time member of the British Columbia Willingdon Cup Team. A longtime booster of junior golf, he now serves as the Director of High Performance for Golf Canada (the Royal Canadian Golf Association), as an advisor on elite player development. He was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame in 1990, the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Golf Hall of Fame of BC in 2003.
