Davidson to be featured on Golf Channel special
Tom Davidson of the Circling Raven Golf Club will be featured during a one-hour special on Monday during The PGA of America's 2010 Year in Review at 6 p.m. on the Golf Channel.
Davidson was named PGA National Merchandiser of the Year for resort courses, his third year in a row to win for the Pacific Northwest section. He was among 10 finalists for the award in 2009.
The show will air again next Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
"I'm proud and happy of all of us here at Circling Raven," Davidson said. "The exposure will, without a doubt, have great value for the resort, for Circling Raven and for the entire region. Our staff has done a great job over time, the kind of work that certainly helps create awards like this and, therefore, the attention."
The full awards feature can be accessed in the December issue at www.pgamagazine-digital.com.
