Director of Golf Jonathan Mattox named ‘Merchandiser of the Year’ and PGA Head Pro Cody Carter named ‘Teacher of the Year’ by the Georgia PGA.
The premier private residential community in Chatham County located just 12 miles west of ‘the Hostess City of the South,’ in Pooler, Georgia, The Club at Savannah Quarters garnered two prestigious awards at the 13th Annual Georgia PGA Special Awards Banquet held at Truist Park in Atlanta.
The Merchandiser of the Year Award was established in 1978 by the PGA of America and Sports Illustrated to recognize outstanding PGA Professionals in three categories-public, private and resort-who have excelled as businesspeople/merchandisers in the promotion of golf.
“It is such an honor to be recognized by the Georgia PGA, but I could not have done it without the incredible team at the Club,” said Jonathan, who was elected to the PGA membership in 2007. Mattox has been Director of Golf at Savannah Quarters since 2017.
The Teacher of the Year Award was started in 1986 to honor teachers of golf among the ranks of the PGA of America membership. The award is based on the Professional’s overall performance in teaching, innovative and specialized learning programs the member has played a key role in implementing and written articles published.
Carter, a former United States Marine and current member of the PGA of America, has been the PGA Head Professional at The Club at Savannah Quarters since 2018. Cody has earned many certifications and accolades throughout his career.
“I’ve taught TOUR players and beginners,” said Carter. “My goal is to help players become better and enjoy the game of golf for a lifetime, so I am thrilled to be recognized as ‘Teacher of the Year’ for doing something I love.”
