2017 Private Merchandiser of the Year - Vince Pulizzano, PGA

 

 

The 28th recipient of the Wisconsin Section, PGA Private Merchandiser of the Year award is Vince Pulizzano of Westmoor CC.  The Chicago native recently finished up his third year as the head professional at the club.  Prior to arriving at Westmoor he held the same position at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, New Jersey.  At Hamilton Farm he played a key role in the club being recognized as the New Jersey Section, PGA Club of the Year in 2012.  He has been a PGA member since 2005 and has also spent time as an assistant professional at Conway Farms Golf Club just north of Chicago.
 
This past year produced a great result for his 1000 square foot golf shop, as he continued to adapt to the needs of his members and provide them the highest level of service possible.  His merchandising philosophy puts an emphasis on a clean presentation of goods, flipping the golf shop multiple times a year and limiting the number of brands they carry in order to increase their knowledge of the product.  With these philosophies the shop was able to meet each and every one of their monthly sales goals.
 
“This award means everything to me because it is truly a team award,” the 2004 Ferris State University graduate said.  “Our staff at Westmoor deserves this honor much more than me because of their hard work and dedication to our members.”
 
It is the second time that Westmoor CC has had their head golf professional earn the honor, with Tom Kabler taking home the 2nd ever award in 1991.
