A Message From The Chapter Director Of Marketing

Hello again golfers. Someone please tell me where the summer went. I know it’s over when my two grandsons have to go back to school. This year, summer seemed to fly by as all of the various golf courses and ranges put on their junior golf camps and clinics for the kids. I know you must have noticed a little chill in the air recently, this must mean that the holidays are fast approaching.

The West Central Chapter remains a front runner with all of the programs that our board has been able to put in place this past year. Our Pro-Am schedule seems to get more competitive, the Chapter meetings are much more informative and our list of valued sponsors continues to grow with the addition of Adams Golf this past week. Our President, Jim Garrison of Temple Terrace CC and his board members have done an outstanding job building on a solid foundation set by the previous board.

Our incoming President, John Falcone of the Dunedin CC, will certainly have some big shoes to fill. But with new boards, comes new excitement, new interest and certainly new ideas as we pave the way for the future. Golf is one of those sports that is clearly here to stay.

The West Central Chapter is very proud to co-host Florida’s Largest Golf Show with the folks from Turner Media Group, better known as the Turner Exposition. The show will be held at the Tampa Convention Center, March 20-22, 2009. Please be sure to watch for all of the advertising.

On behalf of the West Central Chapter Board of Directors, the entire PGA membership and myself, we would like to congratulate our teaching professional of the year, Mr. Matt Mitchell on a terrific job well done. It’s a huge honor for Matt who also became the new Chapter senior champion as well as the Section Senior Champion and is on his way to Palm Springs for the Senior Club Professional Championship. We all wish you the very best of luck Matt.

In closing, I would like to take this special time to extend the chapter’s thanks to each of our valued sponsors who have supported our cause and for the new sponsors such as Adams Golf and the continued support of Cappello and Co. Together, we are making golf a better game. If you are interested in knowing more about the West Central Chapter Partners Program, please contact our office at 727-799-2397. I would like to also thank Last Minute Golfer for bringing back the Pro-Peddler event held this summer at Crescent Oaks CC. We enjoyed a great day of golf with 28 teams in the field and our golf representatives out on the course promoting their equipment.

Are you planning a trip to Ireland, Scotland or Michigan? Well, if you are thinking about taking a group of golfers from your club or league, here is the gentleman we recommend you contact: Jerry McManamon, owner of Jerry Mac Golf, Inc. You can reach Jerry at (727) 862-4653. I have known about this outstanding company for many years. I can assure you, Jerry will make your trip a memorable experience. The West Central Chapter recommends Jerry Mac Golf – a proud sponsor of the Chapter – as your golf tour specialist. Well, that’s it for this time. Enjoy this game of golf and remember, hit the ball long.
