By WPGA • July 7, 2017
The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association has hired Julie Puhl as the Association’s Outreach Services Manager. She started employment on July 1, and will continue to serve the Keystone's Premier Golf Association through the end of this year.
Puhl joined the KPGA in 2000 as Executive Administrator. Her duties with the WPGA will include assisting with the management of Association outreach and handicap services, and junior golf programs.
“I am very excited about KPGA’s affiliation with the WPGA,” Puhl said. “This collaboration will provide exciting opportunities for Pennsylvania golfers.”
The Keystone’s Premier Golf Association, formerly the Keystone Public Golf Association, was organized in 1991 to rate public golf courses in Pennsylvania, and was then licensed to provide handicapping services.
“I am committed to making sure this collaboration will be seamless for the KPGA members, and I see nothing but success within the Pennsylvania golf community,” Puhl said.
The KPGA currently has 132 member clubs throughout the Commonwealth with many volunteers helping with course ratings and junior golf.
“We’re very happy to have Julie join the WPGA, and we very much look forward to her contributions,” Executive Director Terry Teasdale said. “The game of golf in the state of Pennsylvania will be stronger because of this collaboration.”
The WPGA was founded in 1899 and has 132 member clubs and nearly 28,000 members. The West Penn Amateur and Open Championships were first conducted in 1899.
