2017 Public Merchandiser of the Year - Andrew Barrett, PGA


They say records are made to broken, which is precisely what Andrew Barrett of Brown Deer GC did this past year.  The record setting performance for the Brown Deer GC merchandising operation delivered Barrett his second consecutive Public Merchandiser of the Year honor.  It is the first time that a Wisconsin PGA member has earned the honor in back to back years.
He is now two for two at Brown Deer GC, as he recently wrapped up his second season as the head professional.  Prior to arriving at the course he was the head professional at Oakwood Park GC for five years and also had stints as an assistant professional at Tripoli CC, Chenequa CC and The Legend at Bristlecone. 
The Madison native exceeded all expectations as he eclipsed his 2015 numbers by an extraordinary margin in the areas of sales, profit and dollars per round.  The results even produced an impressive end of the year inventory which was less than $10,000.   
“Winning last year was great, but this year means so much more,” Barrett said.  “With so many deserving members that could win this award, many of which were not even nominated, I am humbled by this honor”
His performance even caught the eye of PGA Magazine as he was featured in the July edition for his best practice of increasing shoe and golf bag sales. 
In addition to his Merchandiser of the Year honors, Barrett was also recognized as Assistant Professional of the Year in 2010.
