                                  The PGA of BC Board of Directors wishes to remind all
                                  members of the importance of being accurate and
                                  honest in all communications with the office.
                                 An incident came to light recently involving an
                                 apprentice professional and a head professional who
                                 had signed and submitted Employment Verification
                                 Forms that did not accurately reflect the apprentice's
                                 employment situation.

                                 Disciplinary action was taken against both the
                                 apprentice and the HP in this case.

                                 Employment Verification Forms and other documents
                                 submitted to the office are key elements to the
                                 successful administration of the Association's business.
                                 Please ensure that all information provided is accurate
                                 and true.

                                 The Board of Directors thanks all members for your
                                 consideration in these matters.

                                 To protect your carts from extensive damage (see photo
                                 below), SmartKii has a product to deter potential
                                 vandals from destroying golf carts.

                                 The SmartKii System allows authorized access only -
                                 from one golf car, to an entire fleet, allowing you to
                                 walk away and know that your car or fleet is completely
                                 secure from theft and misuse.

                                 With their versatile systems, you can enable one or

                                 only when you want it to, avoiding off-hour vandalism

The Canadian PGA has launched the 2009 edition of
the Consumer Lesson Program, a unique partnership
with Callaway Golf Canada that will help golfers of all
skill levels become more involved in the game of golf
and the Canadian PGA professionals who help
administer it. Through this program, both organizations
will help grow and promote the game to golfers and
ensure that their golf experiences will be positive.

Last year the program was a great success with over
600 Canadian PGA professionals enrolling in the
program and over 2,500 consumer redemptions across
the country.

The CPGA Lesson Program offers a free 30- minute
golf lesson with a registered and accredited CPGA
professional for golfers who purchase a set of irons or
driver from the 2009 Callaway Golf lineup.

The CPGA/Callaway Golf Lesson Program website
for CPGA members to enroll is now up and running
at www.cpgalessons.ca

Simply click on "Create New Account" and the wizard
will walk you through to build your profile.
