The SCPGA was privileged to host the 2016 Club Car Professional-Official Championship at the historic Redlands Country Club. The beautiful golf course, established in 1896, is the second oldest course west of the Mississippi. If that isn’t enough claim-to-fame, there are reports that Dr. Alister Mckenzie stepped onto the property, as the course was being built and offered his insight on the layout. The SCPGA professionals and their officials were in for a fun and memorable day at one of the hidden gems of Southern California golf.
Even though the golf course is over 120 years old, it was a young SCPGA professional and his partner that was able to light it up. Andrew Kramer, PGA, and his partner David Kramer, both from Los Serranos Country Club, posted an impressive score of 61 (-9). Their card was full of circles and one double circle, as they were able to pencil in seven birdies and one eagle to be crowned champion by two strokes. Congratulations to the Kramer’s on their impressive play and being named the 2016 Club Car Professional-Official Champions!
Thank you to the partners that supported the Professional-Official Championship; presenting partner, Club Car, and supporting partners US Foods and CIG/GIS. Thank you also to following product partners, because of their donations each participant walked away with some fantastic gifts prior to the event: Titleist gave each official a dozen Pro V1 golf balls, Antigua outfitted each participant with a fashionable SCPGA logoed polo, US Foods handed out snacks, and Pepsi product was available at various tee boxes to quench the thirst of the players. Without each partners support, this event would not be one of the major annual events of the Southern California PGA.
A special thanks to host professional Paul Dietsche, PGA and all the staff at Redlands Country Club for their generous support and dedication to the 2016 Professional-Official Championship.
