Gryphon Gallery: Craig Doell
Stuart Brambley, School Archivist
Craig Doell attended Glenlyon Norfolk School from 1985 to 1989.
Craig was an honour roll student and an important member of the sports program, most notably playing basketball, soccer, tennis and badminton. In his first few weeks of starting at GNS, he was a member of the CAIS U-13 Soccer Tournament team that was runner-up in Halifax. However, he truly excelled as a golfer.
He’s now an investment adviser, and will tell you that the $100 junior membership at Victoria Golf Club was the best investment his family could make! He says, “It was a steal—I played there all the time.”
His tournament record speaks for itself:
1997 Canadian Club Champions champion
