PGA of BC Enters Partnership With Nike Golf

RICHMOND, British Columbia — The PGA of BC is pleased to announce a new Preferred Partnership with Nike Golf for the 2021 season.

In addition to its support of PGA of BC Professionals as a Gold-level Preferred Partner throughout the season ahead, the agreement will see Nike Golf serve as title sponsor of this year’s Club Professional Championship.

“We are thrilled to partner with Nike Golf and grateful for its patronage of our member Professionals,” said PGA of BC Executive Director Donald Miyazaki. “It is a natural fit for our organization to align with a brand that has been synonymous with excellence on and off the golf course for decades.

“We look forward to making this a beneficial relationship for both Nike Golf and the nearly 700 men and women serving as PGA of BC Professionals across the province.”

Nike Golf’s offerings include a wide array of high-performance apparel options for men, women, and juniors, as well as innovative, convention-breaking footwear and accessories that help players look, feel and play their best on course. That’s why top players like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau, Michelle Wie West, and many more, proudly represent Nike Golf on tour.

The Club Professional Championship is open to all PGA of BC Head, Executive and Head Teaching Professionals. The 36-hole, individual stroke-play tournament will take place Sept. 20-21 at Victoria’s Royal Colwood Golf Club. Brad Clapp (Ledgeview Golf Club) is the event’s defending champion, having won the 2020 title in a playoff at Nicklaus North Golf Course, earning him the honour of having his name etched on the Dick Munn Memorial Trophy for the first time.

“We are excited to be partnering with the PGA of BC and helping to deliver one of its marquee events of the summer,” said Adam Cox, President of Mint Green/Nike Golf Canada. “The West Coast has always shown a strong affinity for Nike Golf and we are proud to be the title sponsor of the 2021 Club Professional Championship.

“Partnering with the PGA members is invaluable, as they help us usher in a new wave of enthusiasm and excitement  around the game of golf. This sponsorship fits extremely well with the core values of both organizations,” Cox added.
