Dean Manz and his team at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club received a special honour by the PGA of Alberta this week.
The club was named the retailer of the year for private courses at the awards banquet in Calgary Wednesday night.
Manz, in his second year as the head professional at RDGCC, won the retailer of the year when he was the head pro at Wascana Country Club in Saskatchewan and was also PGA of Canada’s Retailer of the Year in 2015.
RDGCC was nominated for the award by other members of the PGA of Alberta. After that, they filled out an application, explaining gross sales, margins and the number of rounds played and overall growth in your operation.
“We were up against Edmonton Golf and Country Club and we were lucky enough to win it. Huge feather in our cap,” Manz said.
“It’s awesome, the member support was truly amazing. we increased our sales by about 50 per cent and it’s huge and it’s nice to be recognized by your peers and industry leaders for all the hard work your doing… it’s not about me, it’s about my team and putting people in a place where they are strong and provide a good experience for our members.”
