Rollins, speaking with Inside Golf at the media day prior to the 2013 Alberta Open championship at RedTail Landing GC in Edmonton recently, said the transition of taking over for the present executive director and CEO Brent Ellenton, who has headed the AGA for 25 years, has taken some work.

In the “olden days” one had to go to a golf course, and into the pro shop to meet the golf professionals face to face. Nowadays however, the Alberta PGA is on the road to making that initial meet-and-greet a little easier by putting the pros’ faces out in the community to better interact with the general public.
Phil Berube, the executive director of the Alberta PGA, explained that a trial run with such an undertaking proved to be a huge success in Calgary last year and as such the association is looking forward to growing the game through more of the same this year.
