Whispering Pines Golf Club was honored at the STPGA President's Dinner and Award Ceremony Monday night, February 17, 2014, at Miramont Country Club in Bryan, Texas. On behalf of the club, Head Golf Professional, Chris Rowe, accepted the award for Merchandiser of the Year for Private Clubs.
While Whispering Pines has a small golf shop and low round volume, neither has stopped them from growing their annual merchandise sales dramatically. Head Golf Professional Chris Rowe does all of the buying and has grown the merchandise revenue substantially without a dramatic growth in number of rounds.
According to Rowe, "My belief is bring in the best products, create a logo that is attractive and give every member and guest the best experience they have ever had on a golf course." Certainly, the Whispering Pines experience is one you don't want to miss.
Congratulations to Whispering Pines Golf Club and all the staff that made this award possible.
