Andrew Kramer Elected PGA Professional

Los Serranos Head Golf Professional Andrew Kramer recently became a PGA Professional.

Andrew is the grandson of Jack Kramer and has been playing golf at Los Serranos Country Club since he began to walk. He played varsity golf at Ayala High School and gained a scholarship to play at the University of La Verne. There he won 5 tournaments, still holds the record for best scoring average (72.4) in school history, and earned First Team All American Honors. He has won the Men’s Club Championship at Los Serranos in 2008 and the PLGA Championship at Griffith & Harding Park.

All that golf has led Andrew to where he is today, he recently completed the PGA Program and was elected into membership on September 1st.

The goals of those going through the PGA Professional program are to work daily to grow interest and participation in the game of golf.

There are several steps to become a PGA Professional. First, one must pass the Playing Ability Test, a 36 hole tournament in which you must score 154 or better. Next, is a test on the PGA: rules, history, structure, and constitution of the PGA. At this point you can be accepted into the program which encompasses 3 levels. Requirements include a week long seminar, a portfolio, and several tests. Then a person may be elected into membership.

If you see Andrew at your next visit to Los Serranos be sure to tell him ‘Congratulations!’
