Golf Pro Of The Year

October 23, 2020

WHISTLER, BC – Today Fairmont Chateau Whistler announced its golf club’s Assistant Director of Golf, Padraic O’Rourke, was recently named 2020 Golf Professional of the Year by the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) of British Columbia.

Ireland-native O’Rourke joined Fairmont Chateau Whistler in 2013 as Head Golf Pro and in 2019 was appointed to his current role as Assistant Golf Director.

 

“Since joining our team, Padraic’s positive attitude and commitment to our guests is only surpassed by his passion for the game. This accolade simply enforces what we already know – Padraic is a leader in the industry. I could not be prouder of him.”

To qualify for the Dick Munn Golf Professional of the Year, the individual must demonstrate outstanding qualities of leadership and strong moral character while maintaining a substantial record of service to the PGA and the game of golf. He or she should be well-regarded as a role model to other PGA of BC Golf Professionals. The award is considered one of the highest honours a working club professional can receive.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club closed for the season on October 12, 2020 after an extraordinary summer, and is scheduled to reopen in May 2021. Further details on the golf course can be found online here.
