We are very sad to announce that Ramsay passed away on the 29th December 2011 doing what he loved. His death was sudden and unexpected; however, he passed away in the company of his wife Caroline and kids Zander and Edie. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Ramsay’s work as a golf fitness expert shaped and influenced so many people’s lives. A true pioneer and friend of golf, Ramsay will be greatly missed. With fondness we remember a wonderful person with boundless energy, vision and passion. Ramsay was a full time golf physical therapist, fitness consultant and most importantly loving husband and father.
“I met Ramsay when I was playing State level golf at the age of eighteen.
I continued to work closely with him as a player when I moved into the VIS as a scholarship holder.
Our relationship developed both professionally and personally as I moved into my coaching roles at the VIS and for the Victorian State team.
We travelled nationally and internationally together, Ramsay not only taught me so much about golf but also about life. I have met so many people and learnt so much through Ramsay.
Ramsay was the founder of The Annual Symposium for Golf Bohemians, a collection of like minded people getting better at what they do, learning from each other and integrating new philosophies and technologies.
I was privileged to be a part of the Golf Bohemians from its inception and have helped to continue this annual event since Ramsay passed away.
In 2013 we celebrated Ramsay’s legacy with The Ramsay McMaster Charity Golf Day, the inaugural Tam McSpoon Cup. This event enables us to financially assist Caroline, Edie and Zander.
I will endeavour to honour Ramsay’s legacy by teaching his concepts and carrying forward his ideas and philosophies not only because he was exceptional at what he did but also because he was a great man and a true friend.”
