Stellato nominated for B.C. PGA golf award

Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club head professional Peter Stellato has been nominated for the 2011 B.C. PGA Junior Golf Leader of the Year.

Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club head professional Peter Stellato has been nominated for the 2011 B.C. PGA Junior Golf Leader of the Year.

Stellato, who just wrapped up his second full golf season at the club, will represent the northern and Kootenay regions.

“I thought it was pretty good [to be nominated],” he said. “This junior program I’ve been doing for two years now and it’s really popular.”

Stellato is up against Vernon’s Shannon Glenesk, Victoria’s Jim Goddard and North Vancouver’s Dale Shienbein for the award.

Stellato said the WLGTC junior golf program’s success can be attributed, also, to the help of Cody Wells and Chris Hicks, who help run the practices.

“It would be great to win,” he said. “It would say a lot about all the hard work myself, Cody Wells and Chris Hicks put in. They help out every week and it would be good for the club and great exposure for our golf course.”

The WLGTC junior program ran every Monday during the season with two sessions — one for juniors nine and over and one for juniors eight and under.

“We work on lots of things,” he said. “Chipping, putting and something new we started this year, etiquette. We invite juniors to come and take part and we don’t charge anything for the juniors.”

Stellato was nominated last year; however, he said he didn’t make it to the regional nomination stage.

“I hope I win but if I don’t at least I got nominated, which is great,” he said.

“It just goes to show our hard work. I’d like to win but I would share it with the club and the volunteers. It’s definitely a team thing.”

Winners of the 2011 B.C PGA Awards will be announced Dec. 12 with official presentations to go at next year’s PGA of B.C. Spring Seminar.
