Trine's assistant pro at Zollner
earns PGA professional status
Zollner Golf Course now has
two PGA professionals
ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University’s Zollner Golf Course now boasts two professionals with PGA certification.
Noah Warren, Zollner assistant golf professional, recently gained Class A membership with the Professional Golfers’ Association of America after four years of work. A former PGA apprentice, Warren has been at Zollner for 5½ years and completed an internship at Battle Creek Country Club in Battle Creek, Mich. He is a native of Athens, Mich.
“It feels really good,” Warren said of the certification. “Advancing my knowledge base will serve me well at Zollner.” Warren earned a bachelor’s degree from Tri-State University (now Trine) in golf management in 2007. He began playing golf before he was 5 years old, and played on the university’s varsity golf team for four years.
“This is the first time in Trine’s history that we have had two PGA golf professionals,” said Jenny Lymangood, director of golf at Zollner, who has been a PGA member since 2005.
“I’m really proud of Noah, he’s worked hard and will be a great asset to the PGA,” she said. “He’s still eager to learn even after achieving professional status.”
To receive PGA certification, individuals must meet requirements for work experience, curriculum completion and player ability, and complete an internship. There are 476 PGA professionals in Indiana.
As assistant professional at Zollner, Warren is responsible for the food and beverage operation and assists with daily operations, lessons and junior golf clinics.
He and his wife, the former Kayla Cheesman, make their home in Angola.
Founded in 1916, The PGA of America, based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., is the largest working sports organization in the world. It is comprised of more than 27,000 men and women promoting the game of golf.
