Bay Club Head Professional named, 2014 NEPGA Golf Professional of the Year!

Greg_HeadshotCongratulations to Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans who was recently named the 2014 New England PGA Golf Professional of the Year. This award is the highest honor bestowed upon a PGA professional. This honor signifies Greg’s leadership at the Bay Club and within the entire New England golf community. Greg received his award this week in front of a large audience of fellow PGA professionals at the 2014 NEPGA Section Spring Meeting at Andover Country Club. This recognition acknowledges him for his continued professionalism both at the Bay Club and throughout the New England Section and Cape Cod Chapter.

As we know, Greg has won many events at the Chapter and Section level and has been a 5 time recipient (consecutively) of the Wessner Award given to the Cape Cod Chapter Player of the Year, however this recent award recognizes Greg for his professional achievement in ALL areas of being a golf professional. Greg has served as the Cape Cod Chapter’s Tournament Chairman as well as their President. During his tenure, the Chapter experienced increased participation and renewed enthusiasm. Greg has been a member of the Section Tournament Committee for seven years and has chaired the committee for the last three. The Tournament Committee Chairman is also a sitting member of the Section Board of Directors, and Yeomans has been a welcomed addition in the Board Room. Greg has also been on the NEPGA Junior Golf Committee for four years and two years on the NEPGA Communications Committee.

Upon hearing the news, Yeomans commented: “Clearly I was honored and humbled when I received the phone call from President Kelley.” Yeomans was actually traveling on a Member Golf Trip in Puerto Rico when he received the first missed call from President Kelley. “I was unfortunately unable to return his call until my return, and to be honest, a call from the President usually meant there was a Section tournament issue. I was bracing myself for the next tournament issue when President Kelley started the conversation by saying: ‘on behalf of the 1000 PGA members and apprentices of the New England Section, I would like to congratulate you on being named the 2014 Golf Professional of the Year!’  After a brief moment to absorb what he had just said it was without question the best news/award I had ever received in my professional career” said Yeomans.  “I will cherish this award and am honored to represent the NEPGA as its Professional of the Year.”

An NEPGA awards banquet honoring Greg, along with other section award winners will be scheduled later this fall.

Congratulations Greg!
