    Colin Orr

    Anyone heard from Colin Orr? I had signed up for his winter golf school and paid. He then cancelled his school and has not refunded me. His phone number is now "temporarily out of service". I find this hard to believe that Colin who has been around Ottawa for years has just up and left. Anyone else have any information?

    Never heard of him but I’d start with the CPGA, Falcon Ridge and then the Ottawa Police. He could be sick or something but then again it could be fraud. From what I could google, it seems he’s been around this area and with different golf clubs for years so it doesn’t seem like a fraud thing but you never know.

    He’s on Twitter and had posted not too long ago
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    Please refrain from using the words like fraud, etc... Hopefully he will respond to people who have registered and paid for his golf school and issue a refund, or is looking for another location to conduct his golf school. As strange as this is, hopefully it is not a health thing, and will be in contact with the people who paid for the winter golf school.

    Agreed BogeyGolf! Colin is a great guy and has years of hard work and dedication to helping Ottawa golfers for years. I was hoping that someone knew of a way to get into contact with him over the winter.

    Hylands announced last week that Colin Orr is returning as a fulltime teaching instructor.

    Hopefully he gets in touch with people who paid for his cancelled winter golf school.

    Nobody had yet to hear back. I have a read receipt on a text I sent in January but no replies. I am in same boat - out $560. It is puzzling and very out of character. Most of us who got the shaft are long time clients / Facebook friends. Just weird and disappointing.

    I am a victim too. I paid more than $1000 for my wife and me for the winter clinic. He kept communication with me until early January when he suddenly ghosted me, no phone, no email, no Facebook response, ... I found his behavior very weird.

    Don't know how many people have registered and paid for his program and if anyone has received his refund. Has anybody talked him of the reason why he is not contacting the registrants and discussing the refund plan?

    I said that months ago and got scolded for using the word “fraud”. Should have been dealt with months ago.

    A Modirator asking a Forum Member to 'refrain' from using an inappropriate word like 'fraud' on this forum was dealt with months ago.
    It was dealt with appropriately given a person had suggested a reference to a crime being committed by someone whom the accuser doesn't even know.
    To be 'scolded' is to remonstrate or rebuke (someone) angrily.
    Bogey golf was certainly not doing that.

    I believe some people are going to see him at Hylands, as it is harder to ignore people when you are face to face than by not answering a telephone, hopefully it will get resolved amicably by everyone.

    You are right. Friend of mine called and recognized him on the phone, although Colin denied being who he was. Ultimately went to the club and had a conversation about how he could get his money back. It'll be interesting to see how it'll go.

    The best thing is to just speak to a police officer, they usually try to resolve things outside the court, may provide motivation to refund all those people. The thing is no one wants is a confrontation. I deaslt with him years ago and seemed like a good guy so I am sure he will want to do the right thing

    We're not in a court of justice and don't know all the details but if he does not clear his name no one will ever sign up with him for future winter school lessons.

    I assume hylands wouldn't want bad publicity. Wondering if anyone contacted them and discussed the issue about this individual.

    This isn't a police matter.....
    There are other ways to seek a refund.

    If true, wild. Denial of identity over the phone and sounds like no resolution in person. A reputation takes a lifetime to build a minutes to destroy. Sad.
