Vision:

Create and/or enhance existing playing, professional and social opportunities for senior members of the Western Washington Chapter of the PGA of America.

Focus:

Be aware of issues and concerns of the senior membership. Monitor existing participation opportunities for effectiveness and quality and make recommendations for changes or new programs, as needed.

2017 Goals:

  • Increase the percentage of unique individual senior members who participate in the Senior Pro-am Series. The 2016 participation rate was roughly 33%. The target for 2017 will be 40%.
  • Fill field (16 spots) for 2017 Senior Match Play event. 15 of 16 spots were filled in 2016.
  • Field a more competitive team for The Hagen Cup matches. The team for 2016 consisted of 5 players in the top 10 of the end of season points standing, 5 players in the top 20 and 2 players in the top 30. The goal for 2017 will be at least 6 players in the top 10 and all the remaining players within the top 20 of the end of season points standing.
  • Establish a new Western Washington Chapter ‘Senior Player of the Year’ award for 2017.
  • Create avenues for playing and/or social participation for older members (70 years +) who don’t actively participate in existing chapter activities.
