PGA of BC Professional Development Program (PDP)


Standings as of March 16, 2020

Members of the PGA of British Columbia continue to prove themselves as golf industry leaders at the local, provincial, national, and international levels in a variety of innovative fields.

Introduced in 2013, the PGA of British Columbia Professional Development Program (PDP) is an annual Order of Merit designed to recognize members of the Association whom showed a tremendous contribution to the Association, the industry, and mostly importantly themselves. Through involvement in Education, Tournaments, Trade Show, Awards, and various forms of Volunteerism, the PDP provides equal opportunity to showcase the strength of our members.

As an added incentive beyond recognition, the top ten point-earners by November 30th will be rewarded with cash bursaries totaling roughly $5,000.

Through this initiative, the PGA of BC also acknowledges the Association's Top 100 Golf Professionals each year, awarding the designation to those finishing among the first 100 positions on the PDP Order of Merit presented by Sunice & Bobby Jones.

As the year progresses, the Order of Merit will be updated by PGA of BC administration staff. Although Association-related schedules will be administered by the office, members are encouraged to submit qualifying extra-curricular activities within seven days of completion. An online form has been created below for easy requisition to the office. It is the member's responsibility to submit supporting documentation to in order to qualify for the points requested.

Please note that PDP Points are only eligible for members while they are in good standing.
