A businessman killed by a tree branch falling on his head on a golf course has been described as ‘a true gentleman’.
Craig Bury died in a freak accident at Mollymook Golf Club on the south coast of New South Wales, 90 minutes south of Wollongong, on Thursday.
Mr Bury is said to have played golf at the course every Thursday, and suffered the fatal injuries while playing a round with three others.

‘Craig would do anything for you. He was a really good guy,’ an unnamed work colleague told The Daily Telegraph.
On social media, one woman said Mr Bury was a ‘true gentleman’ and another described him as a ‘lovely, lovely man’.
She said Mr Bury founded an equipment supply company in the 1990s and said he ‘was a really good friend and he will be well missed in the industry’.
NSW Ambulance said Mr Bury was unable to be resuscitated on the scene.
‘Unfortunately the man suffered a significant head injury and went into traumatic cardiac arrest and died at the scene,’ said NSW Ambulance Inspector Faye Stockman.
‘Accidents like this are absolutely tragic for everyone involved.’
Mollymook Golf Club gave its condolences in a statement.
‘We wish to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the man’s family and loved ones, as well as to the players and club employees who were with him,’ the Golf Club wrote.
