EAST LANSING – The 2020 pandemic efforts of the Michigan Golf Alliance have been recognized with the Champion Award by the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA).

“Each year the NGCOA recognizes those that have helped preserve the tradition of the game while embracing the challenges and opportunities of the golf business, and it’s wonderful that they see the same thing we see – that the teamwork of the Alliance on behalf of the Michigan golf industry truly exemplified those things,” said Jada Paisley, executive director of the Michigan Golf Course Association (MGCA) in announcing the honor today.

The NGCOA’s Champion Award is bestowed upon individuals or entities that have succeeded in working on behalf of a group of owners and have garnered significant victory for its members.

The Michigan Golf Alliance, a cooperative body of five state golf associations formed in 2008, worked and lobbied on behalf of the golf industry in 2020 communicating with government officials through the pandemic to clarify industry needs, safety protocols and executive order compliance.

“The Alliance stepped up and led the way when the pandemic response was changing dramatically day-by-day,” Paisley said. “It was a tremendous example of teamwork for all the golf courses and the golfers in our state, as well as a great industry that benefits Michigan in so many important ways beyond its $4.2 billion in economic impact.”

Alliance members include the Michigan Golf Course Association, the Golf Association of Michigan, the Michigan Section PGA, the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association, and the Greater Michigan Club Management Association. Although the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation (MTF) could not be part of the government advocacy due to its non-profit status, Paisley said the Alliance would like to recognize the MTF for information the group collects and continues to provide regarding turf research.

Congratulations to the Michigan PGA's own John Lindert, PGA who was elected PGA of America Vice President today! John will serve a two-year term. We are so proud! ...

The Officers and staff are here at the Country Club of Lansing watching what is sure to be a great PGA of America virtual meeting! Where are you watching the meeting?! ...

The Michigan PGA is proud to announce that Stephanie Jennings, PGA, is the first female officer elected to the Michigan PGA Board of Directors!

Jennings will serve as the Section’s Secretary and is currently the Head Women’s Golf Coach at Eastern Michigan University. In her spare time, she works with a good friend and assists a PGA Junior League team out of Bay Pointe Golf Club in West Bloomfield, MI.

We caught up with Stephanie and asked her, "As the first female officer, what influence do you feel you may have on other females to run for the Board of Directors going forward?

Jennings replied, "I am friends with a few of the female members in our Section. However, my goal is to build rapport with more of our female members and associates and to encourage them to get involved in some capacity. Whether it's volunteering at an event, serving on a committee, or running for a Board position, I feel that you receive a more complete experience with your Section when you give a little of your time."

"I feel that my diverse background and work experience brings a different perspective to our Board. From working for a national women's golf association to building and executing player development programs for three public facilities, I've been fortunate to gain very valuable experience that I feel will aid in the decision-making process with my fellow Board members."
