OBITUARY-GEOFF PARSLOW 4-3-1947-18-3-2022

Cannon’s

Geoff Parslow sadly passed away in Australia on the 18th March after a long struggle with cancer and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Geoff was a Club Professional at Yarra Yarra Golf Club and Tweed Heads Golf Club in Victoria and a Touring Pro playing on the Asian Golf Circuit, the PGA Tour of Australia, and after he turned 50,  the European Seniors Tour. He won the Victoria Open in 1977 from Greg Norman and Johnny Miller and played in the Open Championship at Royal Lythan & St. Annes in 1979 finishing T54 behind the winner Seve Ballesteros.

Geoff was a partner with his brother Ted and Jason Winter in the very successful golf course design company Parslow & Winter Golf Design, responsible for numerous courses in Malaysia and beyond, the most notable being the redesign and redevelopment of TPC Kuala Lumpur.

After his playing career ended Geoff came to live in KL and in 2012 he joined Loose Cannons with Ted and played 324 games with us and joined several of the clubs Away Tours. Geoff brought a new dimension to Loose Cannons games. Geoff had a wicked sense of humor and was always ready to offer some advice to his playing partners, but in an off-the-cuff matey manner that was greatly appreciated.

Geoff will be missed by all who had the privilege to have known him.

    Phil and I were so sad to hear of Geoff’s death, even though we knew it was expected. We were “sometime” neighbours at San Simeon and when we visited our unit over the Christmas holidays, we shared many a cold ale on our balcony with Geoff and sometimes Ted as well. We came to regard Geoff as a friend and since our move to Tugun from Canberra a year ago, were lucky enough to share a meal with Geoff and Ted at the Tugun Bowlo. We were looking forward to spending a lot more time with Geoff, but sadly it was not to be. He was a personable, funny guy and I was even willing to embarras myself by asking him to have a game of golf with me, but unfortunately he was not well enough. Vale Geoff. You will be missed.
