Gerry was pre-eminent in golf in Nova Scotia for over thirty-four years. In 1968, he won the N.S. Juvenile Championship (16 and under) and was runner-up at the Canadian Juvenile Championship in 1970. At the Junior level (18 and under), he was a member of the N.S. Team in 1971 and 1972, N.S. Champion in 1972 and placed third in the Canadian Junior Championship that same year. In 1976, Gerry won the first of his seven N.S. Amateur Championships winning again in 1977, 1983, 1992, 1995, 1997 and 1998, as well as being runner-up six times.
Gerry was named to the N.S. Provincial Golf Team nineteen times between 1972 and 2001. With partners John Randles and Ed Dumeah, he captured the N.S. Four Ball Championship in 1977, 1980, 1995, 1998 and 1999, more times than anyone else. Gerry won the N.S. Mid Amateur (age 40 and over) in 1995, 1998, 2000 and 2001 (when he overcame a five stroke deficit on his final round). As a member of the N.S. Mid Amateur Team for eight years between 1993 and 2000, Gerry led his team to the Canadian Championship in 1999 while placing third himself.
Gerry MacMillan became Superintendent of the Paragon Golf and Country Club in Kingston, N.S. in 1983 and continued in that capacity for over 18 years. Gerry’s name will always be connected to amateur golf in Nova Scotia, a sport which he truly loved and at which he certainly excelled.
