Jason Giesbrecht of Royal Colwood is a regional recipient of the Golf Professional of the Year award for the 2015 Professional Golfers Association of B.C. awards.

The private club’s head pro is also one of four nominees for the provincial award and is one of a few Greater Victoria pros up for 2015 honours, to be presented Oct. 14 at the PGA of B.C.’s annual gala at the River Rock Casino and Hotel in Richmond.

Also named as Vancouver Island regional winners, as well as provincial nominees, are teaching pro Jeff Palmer of Olympic View for Junior Golf Leader of the Year, and Cordova Bay’s Doug Mahovlic, for Class A Professional of the Year.

Bear Mountain Golf Resort is nominated for Facility of the Year.

Voting among PGA of B.C. members is due to close today (Oct. 1) and the results will be announced at the gala.
