Local PGA Members Recieve 2022 Awards

pros- First and foremost, Hannah McCrabb, PGA Associate Professional at NCR Country Club is the 2022 recipient of Associate of the Year. McCrabb has been around the game her entire life and only recently started in her role at NCR in early 2021. She jumped feet first into the opportunity. She prides herself on being able to be a jack of all trades helping with events, instruction, junior camps and anywhere she is needed. She leads by example with a strong work ethic and a positive, energetic personality. Hannah’s goal is to serve that role to other girls interested in the sport and business of golf.

Second, Jeff Grant, PGA General Manager at NCR Country Club, has built his career on mentorship and helping lead others in the industry which is why he has been selected as the 2022 Bill Strausbaugh Award recipient. He’s helped numerous PGA Professionals advance their careers while leading a team of seven PGA Members at his club today. One way that he’s led others is through education. Grant earned a PGA Certification in Executive Management and is also a Certified Club Manager through the Club Management Association of America (CMAA). He doesn’t just lead by example, he invests in others through their own education. Of the seven PGA Members on this staff, one has earned the distinction of PGA Master Professional while five have earned a Certification.

Lastly, Tom West, PGA General Manager at Heatherwoode Golf Club, is the 2022 SOPGA Public Merchandiser of the Year. West attributes his success to treating the golf shop as a direct reflection of the overall facility. He has used creativity, like installing a real Red London Telephone Booth around their Coke machine and building out a custom trophy case to give guests the feeling that they are at a high end facility. He also tries to create a laid back buying environment by focusing on decor, lighting and background music, all resulting in increased sales for the facility.
