PDP Leaders




PGA of BC members continue to prove themselves as industry leaders at the local, provincial and national levels in a variety of ways, reflected in the PGA of BC Professional Development Program presented by Sunice & Bobby Jones. First introduced in 2013, the PGA of BC ‘PDP’ is an annual Order of Merit designed to recognize members of the Association who show a tremendous contribution across many pillars key to being a top professional – the Association, by way of education, tournaments and other events, the industry in general, and, most importantly, themselves. Each year, the standings are used to determine the Top 100 Professionals, recognized annually at the Annual General Meeting and Spring Education Seminar.

The top ten point-earners by November 30, 2023 will be rewarded cash bursaries from a purse of $4,000. Newly created in 2023, the top 10 Assistants’, not otherwise recognized in the top 10 of the general standings, will also be rewarded cash bursaries from a purse of $2500. Those eligible for the Assistants’ standings are professionals not otherwise eligible for the PGA of BC’s Club Professional Championship. For more information on eligibility, please contact Membership & Events Manager, Doug Titterington at Additionally, this season includes the introduction of the ‘Rookie of the Year’ race, with the top point earner recognized at the Annual General Meeting and a cash bursary of $250. A ‘rookie’ is defined as any professional who has joined the PGA of Canada from January 1 of the previous year through the present day.
