Jerry Budyk of the Elmhurst G&CC is the inaugural recipient of the Golf Manitoba Distinguished Service Award.  Jerry has been involved as a volunteer with amateur golf since 1982.  He was an active volunteer with the former Manitoba Golf Association (MGA) and continued his dedicated service to Golf Manitoba.  He has served in the capacities of club representative, as a starter and scorer at provincial championships and as the Associations coordinator of volunteers for bingos at Club Regent and McPhillips Street Station.

“Jerry has always displayed a high level of professionalism, been a very strong advocate for Golf Manitoba and the former Manitoba Golf Association and shown commitment well above and beyond what has been expected of him,” said Trish Jordan, Golf Manitoba’s President. “Golf Manitoba is truly lucky to have a volunteer with the dedication of Jerry Budyk.”
