First Ever Golf Range Association of America Advisory Board Formed

Six weeks ago, the new GRAA executive team met for two days with 12 leading range owners and operators at the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The experience was so successful in generating ideas and providing guidance that we have now asked each of those present to contine as members of a GRAA Advisory Board:

David Beltre, Chelsea Piers
Mark Caster, PGA, TopGolf
Darrell Crall, PGA of America
Patrick Eggeling, PGA, Old Oaks Country Club
Bruce Fleming, Makefield Highlands Golf Club
Bruce Gerlander, PGA, Orange Country National golf Center & Lodge
Lou Guzzi, Lou Guzzi Golf Academy
Katherine Jemsek, Jemsek Golf
Tony Martinez, PGA, Keeton Park Golf Course
Greg Mason, PGA, Legend Trail Golf Club
Mike Malaska, PGA, Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club
Del Ratcliffe, PGA, Sunset Hills Golf Course
Susan Roll, PGA, Carlsbad Golf Center
Joe Vrankin, TopGolf
Mike Woods, PGA, Haggin Oaks Golf Complex

We believe that the GRAA will only get stronger as we listen to the experts in the field. So if anyone who works on a golf range has ideas how to make the GRAA better, we want to hear from them. We want to get to know them. It is what made PGA Magazine successful and it will make the GRAA successful as well.
