NENY PGA Tournament Director & Assistant Executive Director:
Douglas Hilman Evans, 53 of Cohoes, entered into eternal life on Friday, September 18, 2020 at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady.
A friendly greeting, a smiling face and a laugh that will be always remembered.
Doug Evans was the heart and sole of the NENY PGA Section’s Professional Tournament Program & Junior Golf Association for 16 years. His devotion to our hundreds of juniors and families through his work with our NENY PGA Section Junior Golf Association (credited from it’s inception) to PGA Junior League to so many other touch points through his career was profound. To say it the simplest, his presence and representation positively impacted the lives of the junior golfers and families he interacted with.
Although we didn’t get the chance to say good bye to him, we know he would appreciate the thought of contributions to be used in his memory to help continue the efforts to effectively change lives through the game of golf.
