Happy New Year!  I wish each of you the best as you set to out make 2020 the most successful year of your career.

Your section board just finished up our winter planning sessions and we are very excited for the upcoming year.  The 2020 budget was approved as well as our business plan.  Every decision we made focused on serving each of you and growing the game of golf at your facilities.  As we left the meeting, the board, the section office staff and each of our committees were tasked with specific objectives.  I look forward to measuring our success throughout the year and reporting back to each of you over the next 12 months.  We have much to accomplish but I am confident we can achieve our goals.

The 2019 list of Special Award Winners was made public on December 10th.  Congratulations to each of these deserving PGA Professionals.  These are the best and brightest in our section and serve as model PGA Professionals. Read about the winners here.  Each will be honored in March at our Special Awards Ceremony.

The 2020 tournament calendar is posted on our section website.   We have some great venues lined up for 2020 ‒ highlighted by a return trip to Montana for our Section Championship at Canyon River.  I hope you all make a point to play in a section major as well as a handful of chapter events.

I hope to see many of you this spring for our PNW Pro-Assistant Championship, held March 23-24 at Tualatin CC. Join us the night of March 22nd for the Special Awards Ceremony, and March 23rd after the first round of the championship for the Spring Meeting.

As always, please reach out if there is anything I can do for you, answer any questions you may have, or simply want to chat about how to fix my chipping yips!
