It is with great sadness to inform you that Philmont C.C. PGA Director of Golf Justin Riegel passed away Wednesday afternoon in a tragic accident at the club.
Justin worked as a PGA Assistant Professional at Aronimink G.C., Wilmington C.C. and Gulph Mills G.C. He earned his first PGA Head Professional position at French Creek G.C. and then moved on to Philmont C.C. as PGA Head Professional, and most recently, PGA Director of Golf. Justin was also very involved with the Philadelphia PGA Section, serving on a number of committees and as chair of the Philadelphia Assistants Organization. In 2015, he was selected as the Section PGA Assistant Golf Professional of the Year. A friend to so many of us, gone too early.
Please keep Justin’s girlfriend Kate and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during the difficult time. As more information becomes available, we will share it with the membership.
A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help support Justin and Kate’s growing family. You can access it by clicking here. The Section will continue to work on and promote all efforts to help Justin’s family during this tragic time.
