Locals among PGABC top 100 professionals of 2021
The Association’s Professional Development Program (PDP) Order of Merit acknowledges PGA of BC Professionals who make outstanding contributions to the association, their communities, the province’s golf industry and, most importantly, themselves.
“Sunice and Bobby Jones would like to congratulate all PGA of BC members named to the Association’s Top 100 Golf Professionals of 2021,” said Sunice CEO Derek Faith. “The individuals comprising this year’s Top 100 list are a remarkable group of men and women demonstrating tremendous dedication to their craft and personal growth.
“We are proud to support an initiative like the Professional Development Program that recognizes the hard work of PGA of BC members to the benefit of all in British Columbia’s golf community and industry.”
Additionally, the PGA of BC is pleased to acknowledge Brian McDonald, Executive Professional at Fairview Mountain Golf Club, as the first-place finisher on the 2021 PDP Order of Merit, with 107 points.
McDonald barely edged Copper Point Golf Club’s Dennis Bradley for the PDP title, as Bradley amassed 106 points to finish just one off the winning total.
As a three-time regional award recipient and the PGA of BC’s provincial recipient of the Davie Black Professional Development Award, Bradley was one of only two members who secured the maximum number of available Awards category points in 2021, and was once again active in tournament play, education and volunteerism to earn his first finish inside the PDP top 10.
Copper Point Golf Club has four professionals named among the top 100 in B.C., the most in the region.
Along with Bradley, also named are Copper Point’s Scott McClain, Dale Moore and Brian Schaal, who finished 10th in the PDP standings.
St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino’s Cindy Soukoroff finished ninth in the PDP standings.
Two pros from The Springs at Radium made the top 100: Lance Barber and .Jeff Wiggins.
And Matt Gillett from Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and Kevin Bennett from Spur Valley Greens also made the top 100.
