Thank you to everyone who completed the PGA Compensation Survey.  This survey and the information you provided helps you and fellow PGA Professionals understand and enhance their compensation.  Hopefully with your efforts, our Section will once again rank at the top of the class.

Congratulations to the Arrowhead team of Bryce Fisher and John Cassidy for their win at the PNW Pro-Assistant Championship held at Seattle Golf Club. Their two-day total of 66-66 was 12 under par and good enough for the victory!  A big thank you goes to PGA Head Professional Doug Doxsie and the rest of his outstanding staff for hosting the Section.  Doug told me he was in charge of the weather over the tournament and I have to say I have never seen a better two days of weather for this tournament.  I think we all need this!

Your Section Board held its spring board meeting also at Seattle Golf Club and everything is in place to have another fantastic year across our big section.  Our mission statement is: “Serving the Members and Growing the Game”.  I promise you that we ask that question every time in the board room before we come to a conclusion. The board as a whole is unified in conducting the business of the section on your behalf under the guidance of our mission statement.  Please visit our Section App or the pnwpga.com to find all of the new information needed for the upcoming season. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the Section Office.

Next up on the tournament scene is the PNW Senior Players’ Championship held at Wine Valley on April 16th – 17th. The deadline for entries is April 3rd, so you have a couple more days to sign up.  In May, The Muckleshoot Casino Washington Open benefiting the Folds of honor comes back to Meridian Valley GC on May 20th – 22nd. Director of Golf/General Manager Greg Manley, PGA will have the golf course in perfect condition and is excited to host everyone again this year.  Deadline for sign ups is May 1st. Remember, the goal in 2019 is to play more golf!

Coming back this year is the Pro-Am for the Northwest Open in August, be on the look out for information coming on this event soon.

Finally, I want to say that it’s a honor to serve the membership of the Pacific Northwest Section.  I look forward executing the Section’s 2019 Business Plan and following the Section’s Strategic Plan, with the help of our CEO and the Section Staff we are off to a great start to the season. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
