The NENY PGA Section's Tournament Program season has concluded with the final Tour Championship played last week. A hearty congratulations goes out to Scott Berliner, PGA Assistant Professional at Saratoga Spa GC who walked away with the following titles:
Our NENY PGA Section has been through a lot of sorrow in a short time and most recently the very tragic passing of NENY PGA Section Member, Tom Sullivan, PGA Head Professional at Wyantenuck CC for the past 21 years.
We will continue to keep everyone apprised of any service information once known. Condolences can be sent:
Kathy Sullivan & Family
110 Pike Road W.
Sheffield, MA 01257
For those who have done so already, thank you for contributing to the fund to assist Tom's family and if you haven't as of yet, please consider making a contribution. We would greatly appreciate it if you continue to share the Go Fund Me Page created by the NENY PGA Section leadership as the more that see the more beneficial it will be and thanks to so many, the fund total continues to increase.
We're now into October and have a lengthy list of members who are still in need of paying dues. The deadline to pay membership dues before late fees apply is October 31st. Section & National dues portions must be paid.
The PGA of America and Supreme Golf, a leading tee time marketplace and golf course software company, have entered into a multiyear relationship to launch a new tee time booking marketplace: PGA Tee Times. The marketplace is slated to launch in early 2021 and will be available on PGA.com, SupremeGolf.com and their respective mobile apps. This relationship gives courses a new option for managing their tee sheets by allowing courses to set and manage pricing.
A consumer launch of PGA Tee Times is planned to debut in 2021. For continued information on this partnership, please visit teetimes.pga.com.
