Past Sani Scholar Quernemoen featured by PGA of America
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — The PGA of America has announced a multiyear partnership with China’s Mission Hills Group and PacificPine Sports Group that will see the launch of three PGA Golf Academies in China.
The partnership between the PGA of America — one of the world’s largest sporting organizations, with a membership of nearly 29,000 golf professionals; and Mission Hills, the world’s largest golf facility, with 22 golf courses across two locations — will see two PGA of America Academies established at the Mission Hills Shenzhen resort in southern China and a third academy at the Mission Hills Haikou resort on Hainan Island.
PacificPine Sports Group has been appointed to manage the three academies at Mission Hills in China, with PGA of America Member Patrick Quernemoen overseeing operations. Previously, both the PGA of America and PacificPine’s parent, i3 Sports, partnered to create a digital media strategy that localizes the PGA’s vast library of content and distributes it via wide-reaching platforms, including a dedicated microsite on Sina Sports’ leading website.
Quernemoen was a 1994 Herman Sani Scholarship recipient.
