Nine local pros among top 100 in B.C.
The PGA of BC is proud to recognize its Top 100 Golf Professionals of 2022, as determined by the Association’s Professional Development Program (PDP) Order of Merit. Nine East Kootenay golf club professionals are among the top 100.
The 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. The PDP provides an avenue to showcase and reward the diverse strengths of PGA of BC Professionals by crediting their participation in continuing education, the Association’s annual Buying Show and Awards Program, tournament competition and various forms of volunteerism.
The PGA of BC is pleased to acknowledge Brian McDonald, Executive Professional at Fairview Mountain Golf Club, has topped the 2022 PDP Order of Merit for a second consecutive year, becoming the first two-time winner of the program. McDonald amassed 109 points over the course of the year, topping this year’s standings by 11-points.
“When I looked at the list last year of past winners, I noticed that no one had ever gone back-to-back since the PDP’s inception so I actually used that as a big part of my motivation for the season and my planned participation in events,” said McDonald. “I have always prided myself on being an active PGA of BC member because it keeps you connected to what is going on within the industry and allows you to meet so many likeminded PGA members along the way.”
