Two Mill Creek Golf Professionals Win PGA Awards

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Two employees of Mill Creek Golf Course were honored at the Northern Ohio PGA’s annual awards ceremony last week.

Mill Creek MetroParks PGA director of golf Brian Tolnar won the region’s Merchandiser of the Year award for the third time. He previously won it at Mill Creek in 2016 and for the Western New York PGA in 2013 when he was at Blue Heron Hills Golf Club.

The award is presented based on promotional skills, getting products to market on a timely basis and the use of specialized merchandising techniques including displays and advertising.

Meanwhile, Mill Creek Golf Course head professional Andy Santor won the Teacher of the Year award, given to professionals based on overall performance, innovative teaching programs, published articles and golfers the teacher has instructed.

The two were honored at the Northern Ohio PGA awards ceremony Oct. 22 at Westfield Country Club’s Cary Blair Center in Westfield Center.
