Jim Sykes, Head Golf Professional at Pleasant Valley CC, created an opportunity as a contestant in the Randy Beaver Cup. Jim raised pledges for his performance to raise funds for our Junior Tour. Jim brought an awareness to this special event and has created an avenue to further grow our game through investing in our future Beaver Cup players down the line. Randy is smiling down on Jim and we look forward to what Jim has put into play.
