Roger K. Welch, PGA Named Middle Atlantic PGA Assistant PGA Professional of the Year
Roger Welch delivers a high level of service with a great level of focus and concern. It was apparent upon his arrival at Washington Golf and Country Club he had the “IT” factor. This trait is not something that can be coached. Roger is engaged with the membership and does a great job relating with a large cross segment of members through lessons, playing, club fitting, merchandising and assisting with organizations of the club. He will be honored at the March 9, 2020 MAPGA Spring Meeting as well as the March 21, 2020 MAPGA Awards Banquet.
