Honoring our Exceptional Professionals        

On April 28th the bi-annual Hall of Fame Ceremony, a combined effort between the PNWPGA and the PNGA, was held at Fircrest Golf Club. This was the fourth joint Hall of Fame ceremony held between the two local governing bodies of golf. This evening celebrated five individuals who have distinguished themselves through their playing accomplishments and contributions to the game in the Northwest. The two PNWPGA inductees have served us all with great integrity, always putting the badge and the PGA Professional before their careers. They are Roger Wallace and Les Blakely, both who have been involved in their association for many years.

Roger and Les have inspired me throughout my career.  They are the models of who we are and what we do. I encourage all of your to read the bios of these two outstanding professionals. Be inspired and find ways that you, too, can give back to this great game and our association. I’ve said it for a very long time and I’ll say it again, no matter how much you give back you will receive even more in return.

Congratulations to Roger and Les and thank you for making the PGA better for my fellow Professionals and myself.
