Walter Lowell Public Golf Course Distinguished Service Award

Annually, the Connecticut Section PGA Officers and Board of Directors nominate all public golf courses in the section that employ a PGA Professional for the Walter Lowell Public Golf Course Distinguished Service Award. For the sixteenth consecutive year, the section will honor a public golf course for its dedication to the promotion of the game of golf.

 

 

It was announced at the Spring Membership Meeting at the Golf Club of Avon that this year's recipient will be Rockledge Golf Club in West Hartford, Conn. Rocklegde was selected for this honor based on an unwavering effort to make golf fun and accessible to all, the advancement of the understanding and application of the Rules of Golf, the enforcement of proper etiquette among its patrons, the promotion of the traditions and values of the game, and the promotion of Junior Golf programs. The award will be presented to PGA Professional Rich Crowe and representatives of the Town of West Hartford at the Walter Lowell PGA Tournament on Tuesday, May 31, at Mill River Country Club.

 

If you have any questions about the award or its process, please feel free to contact the Special Awards Committee Chairman Peter Pulaski or Sue Bell.
