The Passing Of Bain Arnold

Bain Arnold, who worked for a long time at Angus Glen and in other areas of the golf industry, died suddenly on Friday. I hadn’t seen Bain in several years, but when I first started writing about golf, I’d run into him regularly at Angus Glen.

He was a young man, with a new baby in his home, and I must admit to being really stunned about this when an email showed up in my inbox about his death.

For those on Facebook, here’s a link to all the details of his visitation.

The Nixon Garland Funeral home at 166 Markham rd. (Hwy 48) at 2-4 and at 7-9 Wednesday.

  • bain was one of the few people that you meet in life that a bad thought NEVER crosses your mind. i had email contact with him recently, and he said that he wanted to buy a family farm, and farm. he would love it if his son would be a farmer too. a great guy, a warm soul and the world is not as good without him around.

  • This is quite a late reply. I have been at a loss for words since I recieved the news. Bain was a mentor to all his students that didn’t fear change. His views of life were inspiring as was the way he had lived his life. Bain had inspired me to continue to strive for goals and set goals that appear to be unattainable. I will continue to educate myself through ever outlet available. Especially through lessons in life. Bain had taught all us students at Durham College PGM program to learn from our surroundings be attentive to them and grow from the lessons to which they provide. I will forever learn from the leassons he had taught.
