Dick Munn, Executive Professional of the Year Award
The Dick Munn PGA of Canada Executive Professional of the Year Award is one of the highest honours the association can bestow on a working Executive Professional whose total contributions to the game best exemplify the complete PGA of Canada professional. This award embraces a wide range of services executed by the Executive Professional.
Dick Munn was one of the most influential Golf Professionals of his generation. He was the consummate professional who mentored dozens of Assistant Professionals that went on to be Head Professionals themselves. He was a long-time Head Professional at Point Grey Golf & Country Club, which then led to an opportunity to develop and open Gallagher’s Canyon Golf & Country Club in Kelowna. Dick was instrumental in the start-up of Gallagher’s Canyon Golf & Country Club. Also, he oversaw the construction and design of The Pinnacle Course at Gallaghers Canyon. From the course design to the clubhouse, to the practice facility, it was Dick’s foresight that put this facility on the map and made it what it is today.
In 2010, Dick was honored by the PGA of BC with a lifetime achievement award. The award honors individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the PGA of BC over an extended period of time through their actions on and off the golf course. This highest level of honor is not one that is awarded every year and has only been awarded nine times in the history of the PGA of BC.
