Still active in competitive golf, Doug Roxburgh has been at the pinnacle of amateur golf in Canada for more than two decades. Canadian junior Champion in 1970, runner-up in the Canadian Amateur in 1971 and Amateur Champion in 1972, Roxburgh embarked on an amateur career that many in BC would compare to local hero Ken Black. He has won the Canadian Amateur four times and the BC Amateur 13 times, while representing his country on six World Amateur Teams.
