Chapel Hill G.C. Wins 2023 Philadelphia PGA Pinehurst Pro-Am
Pinehurst, N.C. (March 16, 2023) — Chapel Hill Golf Course head professional and PGA Associate Quinn Joseph led his team of amateurs, Josh Joseph, Sam Varano, and Mike Wolf, to victory in the 2023 Philadelphia PGA Pinehurst Pro-Am at the famed Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina.
The group finished with a team score of 16-under-par, 416, in the 54-hole one gross and one net competition, good for a four-stroke victory over the team from Woodstone C.C.: Greg Meyer, PGA, Trevor Buss, Fayez Elias, and Shawn Hughes. Two teams tied for third place at 10-under-par: Bayside Resort G.C., Bryce Young, PGA, John Fowler, Sid Burkot, and Duke Hanson; and Maple Dale C.C.: Chris Brosius, PGA, Rich Karolczak, Sean Sullivan, and Art Giangrant.
The annual pro-am has become a staple on the Section’s tournament schedule each spring, and quickly sells out each season. This year, the field played Pinehurst’s Nos., 2, 4 courses, and Forest Creek Golf Club’s North Course, in addition to a practice round on Pinehurst’s No. 8 course. The highlight of the event each year is the round on No. 2; built in 1907 by renowned golf course architect Donald Ross, and restored in 2010 by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, the course has hosted several major golf competitions, including a PGA Championship, a Ryder Cup, three men’s U.S. Opens, and a U.S. Women’s Open, with several more tournaments scheduled in the future.
