Horton Smith Award Recipient for the Carolinas PGA

We were thrilled to find out Jim Hackenberg, the Orange Whip's founder, was nominated, and then chosen to be named this year's Carolinas PGA Section Horton Smith Award Recipient "for his outstanding contributions to developing and improving educational opportunities for the PGA Golf Professional at his facility and beyond".

Jim has been a member of the Carolinas PGA Section since 2008, which is the largest section in the USA, two things that make it an especially great honor for Jim.
