Earlier this year, the Associate Mentoring Committee set out to create a chapter directory of its PGA members and associates with the intent of providing a resource for our associates as they continue working towards obtaining their PGA memberships. A short on-line survey was emailed to build individual bios of the respondents. Here’s what we learned from the initial survey:
- Our PGA members are willing to share their expertise and mentor others in areas such as Club Fitting, Merchandising, Player Development, Tournament Operations and more.
- Many of our members grew up in Montana, but we also have members with hometowns in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Missouri, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
- Some of our favorite golf courses played have hosted major championships and tour events; some are right here in Montana.
- We’ve met a number of famous people. One of our members has played golf with 4 U.S. Presidents; another member played basketball with the rap group, Run-D.M.C.
We are pleased to present the first edition of the Western Montana Chapter Directory!
