PORTER CORNERS — Brookhaven Golf Course Head PGA Professional Anthony Therrien has received an award from the Northeastern New York PGA. The Roland Stafford Award is presented to a “PGA professional who exemplifies the qualities in honor of the true traditions of the game of golf such as integrity, honesty, and sportsmanship.”
Brookhaven Golf Course, located at 333 Alpine Meadows Rd, is a municipal golf course owned and operated by the Town of Greenfield. The award will be presented at a NENY PGA special awards banquet in November.
Therrien joined Brookhaven in 2019. The course has grown significantly in recent years and is well known for its historic connection to LPGA golfing champion and television broadcaster Dottie Pepper, who started learning the game of golf at Brookhaven as a youth. The course was voted best golf course in Saratoga Today’s “Best of Saratoga Awards” for 2023.
“We are extremely proud of all that Anthony has contributed to the golf course in the past four years,” said Town Supervisor Kevin Veitch. “Brookhaven Park & Golf Course is a treasure for golfers and nongolfers alike.”
Therrien runs PGA Junior League Learn to Golf sessions, private lessons, and a robust weekly league and summer tournament schedule. For more information about events and to book tee times, visit www.brookhavengolfcourse.com.
