Each year members of the Oregon Chapter PGA are selected by their peers to receive the following awards based on their outstanding achievements. These honorees will then be nominated by the Chapter for PNW Section awards.  The nomination process is critical in recognizing the excellent contributions our PGA Professionals are making across our industry and in our community.
