An Award for the Record Books
It’s time to add another plaque to the Golf Shop walls! Earlier this month, Ocean Reef’s First Assistant Golf Professional Evan Jones was presented 2019’s South Florida PGA Southern Chapter Assistant Golf Professional of the Year award.
This award recognizes a PGA member for their overall performance as an assistant professional, leadership ability, willingness to attend and participate in chapter and section meetings, elections and tournaments, promotion of the game of golf through teaching, and positive representation of the PGA of America.
Evan, who has been nominated four times for the award, takes an active role not only at Ocean Reef, but also with the PGA Southern Chapter and South Florida Sector. Along with Director of Golf Scott Kirkwood and Head Professional Mike Leone, he attends all meetings, plays in many tournaments, and participates in SFPGA elections – all of which happen several times a year.
The South Florida Sector is the largest in the country, so Evan was up against plenty of competition to be named the Southern Chapter award winner.
“We’re very proud of Evan,” said Scott. “With hundreds of assistant professionals in our chapter, this truly is an amazing award for him to have won. He’s an important and very-deserving member of our Golf Team.”
