Nomination Committee

A key component of Boardroom magazine’s Distinguished Golf Destination award program is the Nomination Committee. This group, comprised of well-respected PGA professionals, General Managers, and Industry Experts, is responsible for nominating clubs for award consideration at the beginning of the award process. No club can be considered for Distinguished Golf Destination status without nomination. While the Nomination Committee is not directly involved or responsible in any way for the actual assessments, scoring and awarding process itself, the committee members do provide critical ongoing support for the program. The nomination Committee helps maintain the value and integrity of our award program and Boardroom magazine’s strong commitment to help strengthen the golf industry by recognizing fine golf course facilities through the all important lens of the Golf Experience.
