Longtime Bangor Municipal Golf Course professional Rob Jarvis has been named 2020 New England PGA Golf Professional of the Year. It’s the top award in the region by the NEPGA.
Jarvis has been a golf pro for 26 years and became the first Mainer to hold the title of NEPGA President from 2015-2017.
Throughout his 26-year career, Jarvis has made a significant impact at both Bangor Municipal and the NEPGA. The NEPGA President from 2015-17, Jarvis was the Section’s first President from Maine and the youngest in the Section’s history. He currently serves as the President of the NEPGA Foundation, an arm of the Section he helped create during his term as President. Prior to his presidency, Jarvis served as the Maine Chapter Awards Committee Chair, and soon after was elected to the Maine Chapter Board of Directors. After serving in that capacity for several years, he was elected as the Maine Chapter District Director in 2013, a position he held until being elected as NEPGA President in 2015. At Bangor Municipal GC, Jarvis has helped grow membership by nearly 50 percent since 2016, growing from 275 members to over 400.
“Winning NEPGA Golf Professional of the Year is an incredible personal recognition, but as any prior winner will tell you, this award is really a team achievement,” Jarvis said. “I am so grateful for those around me that have played a pivotal role in any successes I may have had along the way.” – NEPGA Release
