Overall Area

Northeastern North Carolina, the Outer Banks and Cypress Landing in Chocowinity escaped the wrath of the two hurricanes thank took aim at the Carolinas. Washington Yacht and Country Club and all club south were hit with high winds and some flooding. I was informed by the former General Manager that The Country Club of the Crystal Coast was hit hard and may not reopen. Any Golf Professional or facility seeking PGA of America Golf Relief and Assistance Funds should contact the Section Office.


Overall the Atlantic Area is consistent with PGA staffing over the past 12 months.
