Michael Moniz, head professional at Maple Downs Golf Club in Vaughan, Ont., has been named the new president of the PGA of Ontario.
Moniz will continue as tournament captain, a role he’s held for four years. This will be his fifth year serving on the board of directors.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed being on the board and have learned a great deal about our association. It is great to be on a board so passionate about not just their profession, but also improving the experience of our PGA professionals. I am fortunate to work with a dedicated and committed office staff led by our executive director, Melanie van der Hoop,” said Moniz.
“I want to thank (former president) Simon Bevan for his tireless efforts over the past two years. I have witnessed first-hand how much he cares about our association. I look forward to working with him over the next year to assist me with this transition as he is somebody I trust and respect a great deal,” he added.
