Germany’s Tillmanns Presented With 5-Star Professional Award3 min read

Posted on: 13th Jan 2014

PGA of Germany Vice-President, Guido Tillmanns, has received one of Europe’s most prestigious PGA Professional accolades, the 5-Star Professional Award.

pgas_of_europe_-_annual_awards_-_guido_tillmans_02_smTillmanns has been recognised for his outstanding contribution to the Profession and to the game across the many and varied areas of expertise and activity that make up the PGA Profession. He was presented with the award at the Annual Gala Awards Dinner that caps off the Annual Congress at Hotel Vila Galé Lagos and supported by Rolex, Glenmuir and the Associação Turismo do Algarve.

“I’m very grateful to receive the 5-Star Professional Award from the Confederation of Professional Golf,” explained Tillmanns during his acceptance speech. “Of course as all of you know no successful professional career can be made possible without having a strong anchor on board, and I would like to thank my wife for helping me keep my bearings. The influence and guidance from experienced professionals, as well as the input from successful entrepreneurs, was also very important to my learning process.”

TIllmanns has filled his career with examples of the highest level of standards and practice in his work that has included elements of coaching, business management, leadership and exceptional service in the administration of the game. Most recently he continues to teach whilst running a shop and driving range, and now operates a golf consultancy company.

One of his recent and most successful projects as a Managing Partner was with the development of a 45-hole golf course in Cologne. For the past seven years, along with a national investor, Tillmans has pieced together the conceptualisation, planning, organisation and building of the parkland and links courses that have received “Best New Golf Course in Germany” and ecological-based awards. The club’s academy was licensed as the first premium PGA Golf School in Germany, and sold approximately 1,400 memberships within the first year of operation.pgas_of_europe_-_annual_awards_-_guido_tillmans_01_sm

Tillmanns’ career began when he joined the PGA of Germany as a trainee in 1989 and was fully qualified by 1993. He then quickly rose through the ranks and after being voted for President of his PGA section he became part of the board of the PGA of Germany in 1998 and also headed up the national Education Committee. Then, only two years later, he became Vice-President of the PGA of Germany.

He is also held in high-esteem by the Confederation of Professional Golf as a former member of the Association’s board and has represented the PGAs of Germany alongside the Confederation of Professional Golf in the PGA World Alliance.
