Mark Reeves is presented with a commemorative plaque by PGA Captain John Heggarty.

Carnoustie, Scotland: Mark Reeves has joined an elite group of individuals to receive Master Professional status of the PGA of Great Britain and Ireland’s – the association’s highest honour.
Reeves began his diverse PGA career in 1988 as head professional at Basingstoke Golf Centre in the English county of Hampshire before taking on his first golf club management position at nearby Dummer Golf Club.
On turning 30, he headed overseas and worked at Hong Kong’s Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course for the next 13 years.
A corporate role with the Haichang Group followed in 2008 and he is currently Director for the BRG Group in Vietnam, heading up its golf and property sectors as well as PR and marketing.
Reeves has also worked with some of the world’s leading golf course design firms, helping in the creation of 14 courses, including two in Hanoi and another in Danang.
He said: “It’s always nice to be recognised and I am humbled to join a list of industry peers that I greatly respect. The PGA brand and qualification has tremendous heritage and symbolises a person of proven integrity. It brings with it trust and respect from leaders and peers and carries an exclusive status worldwide.
“The initials PGA have been as important to me as ‘By Royal Appointment’ is to a branded commodity. It’s immediately associated with quality and in this instance strong playing, teaching and golf management skills.”
The PGA of Great Britain and Ireland is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
