The Carolinas PGA Section is proud to announce the arrival of Christopher Gaines, who assumes a role as Tournament Official at the CPGA headquarters in Greensboro. In addition to providing tournament assistance, Gaines also oversees the Section’s junior golf events and initiatives. 

Prior to this position, Gaines worked in various avenues of the golf industry. This includes the Southwest Section PGA and PGA of America headquarters, where he interned in the Marketing and Public Relations departments, as well as in the Philadelphia PGA Section, where he assisted with the Philadelphia Junior Tour.
