APRIL 26, 2022

FAIRMONT HOT SPRINGS, BC (PGA of British Columbia) -- The PGA of BC concluded its Education Series program for the winter/spring of 2022 on Monday at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort in Fairmont Hot Springs, BC.

Almost twenty PGA of Canada Professionals from the Kootenay region were on hand for the annual event, which saw its return to an in-person format following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Getting the program underway was 2021 Davie Black Professional Development Award recipient and 30-year member of the PGA of Canada, Dennis Bradley (Teaching Professional, Copper Point Golf Club). Through his long-time involvement in working with Special Olympics Canada athletes, Bradley shared his experiences on how to work with athletes and how facilities can be involved in a presentation titled "Changing Expectations: Coaching Athletes with Special Needs". 

The morning concluded with a unique and interactive presentation from father/son duo Trevor Simkins (Head Professional, Bootleg Gap Golf) and Harold Simkins (Life Professional) on how the family came to become golf course owners. In their session titled "From employees to owners - A candid conversation on how the Simkins Family purchased Bootleg Gap", the Simkins shared enlightening information and details on the drawn-out process that allowed them to purchase Bootleg Gap Golf from the City of Kimberley.

Monday's event coincided with the first Order of Merit-eligible Kootenay Pro Tour event of the season, which kicked off in the afternoon on the resort's Riverside Course. With a birdie on the first playoff hole, Trevor Simkins claimed the title over Tickle Creek Golf Resort's David Woytowich after both players shared top spot after posting rounds of one-under par 70.

The Association would like to thank host Professionals Chris Medford and Matt Gillett of Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for their hospitality in welcoming this event to the resort once again.
