Garrett Mack of West Bend Country Club is the 11th winner of the TaylorMade–adidas-Ashworth Golf Assistant Golf Professional of the Year Award. TaylorMade – adidas-Ashworth Golf is sponsoring this award to recognize and reward upcoming future leaders of the game.
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Mack will reach his second anniversary of becoming a PGA member in late March of this year. His past employment experiences have helped him along the way to this prestigious award, as he has spent time at Milwaukee CC, Silver Spring CC and Grand Geneva Resort.
In his second season as the first assistant professional at West Bend CC, Mack truly exceled and was a difference maker at the club. He played a key role in almost every facet of the golf operations, including the hiring and scheduling the golf operations staff, overseeing the outside services staff, doubling his lessons given and several other important daily tasks.
Besides the important role he has played at the club, the Milwaukee resident has also taken initiative to help out several causes. This past season he was able to participate and sit on the board of directors of a member run charity event that raised over $100,000 for the Mario Lemieux Foundation. He also was able to coordinate a golf equipment and clothing drive amongst the West Bend members that benefited the First Tee of Milwaukee County and Goodwill.
Mack also stepped up to the plate in 2012 for the Wisconsin Assistant Golf Professionals’ Association and the Section. He currently holds the WAGPA communications chair post, organized a spring teaching seminar for his fellow assistant professionals and also spent time as a volunteer golf instructor at the Devin Harris Basketball Camp.
