Three Participants Successful At Arbutus Ridge PAT

COBBLE HILL, British Columbia — Three individuals achieved target scores during the PGA of BC Playing Ability Test (PAT) held at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club.

The PAT had 18 male participants attempting to shoot at or below a predetermined score relative to course rating based upon their age, which is a requirement for non-exempt applicants to become a PGA of Canada Professional.

The target scores at Arbutus Ridge were 79 for those aged 49 and younger, and 81 for the lone participant aged 50-plus.

Congratulations to the following applicants who were successful in meeting their PAT target scores, listed alphabetically:

  • Tyson Girardet (Victoria Golf Club)
  • Blake Hamilton (Highland Pacific Golf)
  • Nicolas Miu (Zone Golf Academy)

By demonstrating their high standard of skill over 18 holes, each of the three successful applicants took an important step toward achieving membership as an Apprentice Professional within the PGA of Canada.
