Vision:

Provide a professional presentation of the Chapter tournaments to promote the PGA Professional, provide direct member benefits and develop an array of opportunities that benefit multiple facets of the membership.

Focus:

Manage, operate and promote the Pro-Member Series, Senior Pro-Member Series, Chapter Major Championships, and other events in a first class and professional manner that helps maintain and grow their status among the very best in the Northwest and Western Washington golf.

In addition, provide ample opportunities for professionals to compete in individual and team events throughout the golfing season.

Tournaments must (i) reflect positively on the PGA, the Section, and the Chapter as well as our members; (ii) promote the leadership position of the Chapter; (iii) deliver a superior experience to our players, amateurs, and partners and; (iv) provide revenue to support both themselves as well as other Chapter programs. New event opportunities should be considered if they are aligned with the Strategic Plan of the Chapter.

The development, promotion, and retention of sponsors/business partners is essential to the tournament program’s success.

2021 Goals:

  • Field at least 30 teams for the Patriot Day Scramble.
  • Fill the 2021 Match Play with 32 players (16 Gross & 16 Net)
  • Assist in recruiting at least 65 WWC professionals for Washington Open Field.
