A message from your Area Director, Tom Mason, PGA:

Hopefully everyone had a great start to 2019.  It looks like the weather is going to be fantastic for the first few weeks of February, so hopefully we will see plenty of players at our facilities.  I want to make sure everyone is planning to attend Carolinas PGA Annual Meeting and Super Show.  The festivities begin with the Awards and Honors Dinner on Sunday Night, February 17th.  Congrats to our own, Bobby Howard for being elected to the Hall of Fame.  Also, congratulations to Clem King, recipient of the Bill Strausbaugh Award, and Todd Miller who is the recipient of the Merchandiser of the Year for Public Facilities.  Great Job gentlemen !!!

On Monday, February 11th, we will be hosting a Palmetto (II) Area & SCPGA Chapter Pro-Pro Championship, Meeting and Rules Seminar at Columbia Country Club.  The format for the Pro-Pro will be 9 holes captain’s choice and 9 holes Texas scramble.  We will start the meeting and education at 9:00 AM, lunch at 11:00 AM and have a 12:00 PM shotgun start for golf.  The meeting, education and lunch is complimentary, and the Pro-Pro fee will be $60.00 per person.  The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, February 6th at 12:00 PM.  Please call me at 803-600-8671 of email me at tamason7272@gmail.com to sign-up.  

Also, please mark you calendars for Wednesday, March 28th.  This will be the date of our Palmetto (II) Area Meeting.  Steven Hartwig will be our new Palmetto (II) Area Director and will be hosting the meeting at The Country Club of Lexington. 

It has been a pleasure serving as the Palmetto (II) Area Director for the last 5 years.  Thank you for you support and input and please keep your communication lines open with Steven as he takes over.  If you have a question or concern, Steven will make sure your voice is hear at the Board Meetings.
