Assistants’ Summit

In partnership with local PGA Professionals, the Alabama–NW Florida Golf Foundation and golf facilities across our Section, the Assistants’ Summit is a one-of-a-kind event that aims to give back to the next generation of PGA Professionals.  Established in 2019, the Assistants’ Summit is designed to give PGA Professionals and Associates in Assistant-level positions the opportunity to network, learn, collaborate and exchange ideas.  It is a convening on one place at one time to help individuals become empowered, drive change and be sources of light at their facilities and in their communities.

As the Foundation continues to expand, we have made it a top priority to invest back into the careers of future golf industry leaders.  We believe these assistant-level positions are crucial to golf operations across our Section in programs ranging from teaching and coaching, golf operations, executive management and much more.

Boasting a total attendance of 85 over the last two years, the Foundation is poised to continue making an impact on the careers and development of PGA Professionals in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

We are excited to continue this tradition for years to come.


The Third Annual Assistants’ Summit will take place on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Birmingham.  Join us for an insightful and exciting night as we kick off the 2021 golf season.  We have a great group of panelists including General Manager at the Country Club of Birmingham, Jeff Orkus, PGA General Manager at Capital City Club in Atlanta, Steven Archer and PGA Director of Golf at the Country Club of Birmingham, Eric Eshleman.
