Amidst a gathering at the prestigious Lauswolt estate, the PGA of Holland proudly unveiled their Centenary Book, a commemoration of its 100-year history.

Compiled by esteemed Member and 2024 CPG 5 Star Professional Award Winner, Iain Forrester, the book serves as a testament to the rich legacy and enduring spirit of PGA Holland.

Through meticulous research and dedication, Forrester discovered that in the span of 100 years, PGA Holland has been guided by only nine chairmen, with seven still among the living.

To honour their contributions, all seven former chairmen were invited to the festive presentation at Lauswolt. Regrettably, Eric Kruijning was unable to attend, yet the presence of the remaining six chairmen [pictured], alongside their partners and the current board of PGA Holland, made for a memorable evening filled with camaraderie and celebration.

The Century Book, a labor of love meticulously crafted by Forrester, is now available free of charge to all PGA Holland members. Its pages hold a wealth of history, offering insight into the evolution of PGA Holland over the past century.

In a symbolic gesture, the first copy of the Century Book was presented by Forrester to Alex Loesberg, one of the esteemed former chairmen.

Following this poignant moment, the board of PGA Holland had a special announcement to make. In recognition of their outstanding contributions and dedication to the organisation, Alex Loesberg, André Jeurissen, and Iain Forrester were bestowed with the title of honorary members of PGA Holland. This prestigious honour serves as a testament to their unwavering commitment to the ideals and principles of PGA Holland, and their enduring legacy within the organisation.

The appointment of these three esteemed individuals as honorary members marks a proud moment in the history of PGA Holland, highlighting the continued dedication and passion of its members towards the advancement of the sport of golf.
