Awards, Honorariums, Master Professionals and 
Hall of Fame Members

 

The Western New York PGA conducts a special awards program each year that gives recognition to Section golf professionals for their outstanding contributions, performance, and achievements within the golf profession and the Western New York Section.


Tournament awards are given based on playing performance in Western New York Section tournaments. Player Of The Year points are awarded for all Section competitions at which the professionals compete in individual scoring. Points are awarded on a finish basis to Members only, and the professional with the most points at the end of the tournament season is awarded Player Of The Year at the Annual Fall Meeting and Awards Ceremony.
