The Professional Golfers’ Association of British Columbia has announced the recipients of the 2012 PGA of BC Golf Awards, with the Comox Valley featured in several categories.

Over 60 PGA of BC members were nominated for the nine awards, with regional winners announced in early October.

Coach of the Year is Robert Ratcliffe of Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community. Teacher of the Year is Phillip Jones of Hazelmere Golf & Tennis Club. Bill Kelly of Glacier Greens Golf Club was a finalist. Golf Facility of the Year was The Vancouver Golf Club. Crown Isle was a finalist.

The award winners listed above (with the exception of Golf Facility of the Year) will be the PGA of BC’s nominees for the PGA of Canada National Awards.
