Our Head Golf Pro, Craig Day, has been a member of the Turf Valley family since 1970, the year he was elected to PGA membership, after leaving the military with an Honorable Discharge. He continued on at Turf Valley when the property changed ownership to the Mangione family in 1978 and became our Head Golf Pro in 1990. In 1995, Day became a member of the PGA Quarter Century Club. Of his tenure at Turf Valley, Day says, "Celebrating over 40 years at Turf Valley and seeing the changes has been awesome. First class service has been our goal, whether in the Golf Schools, teaching the many Assistant Golf Professionals, or managing the many golf outings and tournaments. Overseeing the golfers on our courses has been a challenge and a very rewarding adventure. Watching the many Junior members grow into their golf careers has also been very rewarding."
