Additionally, the PGA of British Columbia is pleased to offer the following scholarship/bursary programs to deserving candidates of our Zone:
JIM GIBSON SCHOLARSHIP ($1,000)
In honour of the late Jim Gibson, the PGA of BC is proud to affer an Award in tribute to the commitment and dedication of the longtime Association ambassador. The award will be given annually to an individual within the PGA of BC community that best exemplifies volunteerism and demonstrates dedication to furthering their education to benefit others in a community.
Alec Hubert, Kamloops Golf & Country Club
Having been appointed Executive Professional and General Manager of Kamloops G&CC in 2019, Alec had dedicated himself this year to earning the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM) status with the Club Management Association of Canada (CMAC).
