Top 100 Program

Top 100 Program

The Top 100 Program (formerly known as the Professional Development Program) is based on pre-defined measurable criteria and is designed to recognize PGA of Alberta Members who dedicate their time and demonstrate proven abilities in advancing the Association’s interests for the benefit of all Golf Professionals. The yearly award given out at the Awards Banquet during the PGA of Alberta Buying Show will be for the most points accumulated from October to October of the following year. Every Buying Show begins a new year for the Top 100 Program. Please find below some exciting new initiatives for the Top 100 Program.
