Our PGA Professional of the Year is Gene Siller of Pinetree Country Club!

While Gene’s title was a golf pro, it was more than just a job. He absolutely loved the game of golf and instilled that love in his sons. The young Siller boys quickly became just as passionate about playing golf. In fact, every Sunday you could find Gene playing a round of 18 holes with his sons.

Wherever he was, people looked up to and respected Gene. He had the biggest heart for all people and animals and was always willing to help. He was strong, centered, and ethically grounded, never wavering from doing what he believed was the right thing to do. Gene made the people around him better just by knowing and loving him.

Following Gene’s passing, the Gene Siller Memorial Grant was created by the Siller Family in partnership with the Georgia PGA Foundation and Pinetree Country Club members to honor Gene’s life and passion through support of junior golf initiatives. The Mission of this grant is to provide financial assistance to young golfers throughout the state of Georgia by supporting those looking to learn, play and compete in junior golf initiatives.
