The PGA of Ontario is moving to Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ont., after 13 years in a commercial plaza in Pickering.
“It’s a very exciting move for our association to partner with a world-class organization like Angus Glen Golf Club,” said executive director Kevin Purcell.
“We will have a smaller footprint for our offices than we currently have, but we’ll also have access to all of the excellent facilities at Angus Glen if we want to be able to host meetings or educational seminars on and off the course for our membership,” he added.
With the association’s current lease expiring at the end of November, Purcell says the idea came up during a conversation with Cailey Stollery, president of Angus Glen Golf.
Stollery told Purcell she had the perfect spot for the association. A deal was worked out to bring the headquarters to Angus Glen at a significant cost savings to the PGA of Ontario.
“Angus Glen has been a CPGA facility since opening in 1995 and because of this, we have had the opportunity to work with dozens of PGA pros, said Stollery.
“We are strong supporters of the PGA of Ontario and look forward to working more closely with them in the future,” added Stollery, who is also a member of the board of the Golf Canada Foundation and the Canadian Olympic Association.
Before moving to Pickering, the PGA of Ontario had its offices located across from Angus Glen in an old schoolhouse on property owned by the club’s parent company.
The new address is:
10080 Kennedy Rd.
The phone number, at least for now, will remain the same at (905) 420-1233.
