I would like to take this opportunity to announce my intentions to run for the NOPGA Board of Directors. Recently, I have successfully served two consecutive terms on the Board from 2007-2011 and have also assisted as the liaison and Co-Chairman for all of the Northern Ohio PGA Junior Golf programs. This is a position that I take very serious and have passionately enjoyed doing for my previous four years on the Board.
I am currently working as the PGA Director of Golf at Chippewa Golf Club in Doylestown, and have been a member of the PGA of America for the past 17 years. I was also the Director of Golf at The Aurora Golf Club for three years, and the Head Professional at Raccoon Hill Golf Club for thirteen years. My experiences and views as a Public Course Golf Professional were very helpful in bringing a Public Course perspective to our section meetings when I served my last 2 terms on the Board.
Being a PGA Professional to me means giving back and staying actively involved in our section. I am honored to be a part of our Northern Ohio Section and work side by side with the best section staff the country has to offer. I feel my personality and experience can make a very positive influence to our Board of Directors and look forward to another chance to serve you.
Some of my recent accomplishments in the PGA include;
- 2009 NOPGA Junior Golf Leader Award.
- 2010 NOPGA Junior Golf Leader Award.
- Four time recipient of the PGA of America’s President’s Council on Growing the Game.
- Published Article in our National PGA Magazine titled “Making Golf Fun!”
- Assisted the NOPGA for five years at the North Coast Golf Shows promoting the game of golf offering free lessons.
Thank you for your vote to represent you, my fellow PGA Professionals, as a NOPGA Section Board of Director.
