2015 Mentor List
The Massachusetts PGA Chapter has comprised an unofficial mentor list. The list is comprised of multi-generational PGA Professionals who are willing to offer advice, knowledge, and perspective on merchandising, teaching, contract negotiations, interviewing tips, tournament operations, job opportunity questions or any aspect of being a successful Golf Professional. The PGA Professionals who have offered to be a “mentor” want to help and they are Past Presidents of the NEPGA, current Board Members, Head Professionals, Directors of Golf and course owners. This group collectively possesses a vast and wide range of knowledge and experience and we encourage everyone to utilize their perspective and outlook.
