An update from your Area Director, Jim Lohbauer, PGA:

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far and your clubs are fully recovered from the aftermath of last winter.  The Section is midway through the major tournament season and I hope that many of you are working on your games and supporting these fine events.  Our success as an area and Section depend on your support as a PGA Professional so be sure to get involved where you can, play in Section events and support our Foundation. 

Help me in congratulating one of our area Professionals, Billy Cleveland from Carolina GCC, who just earned the PGA’s highest honor in earning his Master Professional status in the area of General Management.  Way to go Billy and well deserved!  As a fellow Master Professional, I know how much hard work was involved and years of commitment.  One of my goals in the near future is to develop some area committees including education and mentoring, assistants and tournaments to name a few.  I am sure I can count on Billy and others to step up and get involved so please email me if you have any interest in learning more or getting involved.  I will plan to arrange a meeting this fall to begin discussions and develop a game plan for the future. 

Charlotte CC hosted a PGA Golf Clinic for women last month that featured past LPGA Tour player Jane Blalock along with our own Paige Cribb and Mary Thomas.  The clinic hosted many Carolinas female executives and proved to be a great success.  Charlotte CC also looks to host the Harvick 4 Heroes/PGA Reach Pro-Am on October 1 which will contribute largely to our PGA Reach Foundation.  The event is near full and we are actively recruiting key donations for the event’s auction to raise as much funds as possible for the Foundation.  If anyone is able to donate some rounds of golf, lodging or autographed memorabilia, please contact myself or the Section office.

Many of you are gearing up for a busy Fall season with events and activity at your respected clubs and I wanted to remind everyone of a few key events in the upcoming weeks including the following:

Mimosa Hills Pro-Am: 8/15
High Meadows Pro-Am: 8/17
CPGA Professional Championship: 8/27-8/29
CPGA Assistants Championship: 9/10-9/11
Harvick For Heroes/PGA Reach Pro Am: 10/1

Thank you to all area Professionals for your continued support and participation.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me anytime.
