Charlie Robson To Be Recognized by Met Golf Writers

Metropolitan PGA Section Executive Director Charles Robson will be honored at the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association’s 62nd National Awards Dinner on June 18, at the Westchester Marriott, Tarrytown, NY. Robson, who joined the Metropolitan PGA Section in 1972 and is currently the longest-tenured Executive Director among the PGA of America’s 41 sections, will receive the MGWA’s Distinguished Service Award.

As Executive Director of the Metropolitan PGA Section, Charlie Robson has overseen a dynamic growth in the scope and membership of the organization, which administers programs for over 700 PGA professionals and a 1,300-member Met PGA Junior Golf Association.

Raised on Long Island, Charlie graduated from Washington & Lee University in 1972. After a brief stint as a golf professional at Plandome Country Club, Robson began his career with the Metropolitan PGA, where he has been the driving force in establishing the Met Section as one of the most prestigious and respected PGA sections in the country.

Perhaps his greatest contributions, however, have come in the area of junior golf.  He established the Met PGA Junior Golf Association and Junior Tour, and in 1988 began the ‘Golf In Schools’ program, which served as a model for many other inner-city programs across the nation. Robson was also an integral part of the group that founded The First Tee of Metropolitan New York, headquartered at Mosholu Golf Course in the Bronx, and continues to serve as Treasurer on their Board of Directors.

The Metropolitan Golf Association presented Robson with its Distinguished Service Award in 2003 and he received the John Reid Lifetime Achievement Award from the Met Golf Course Superintendents Association in 1998.

The MGWA’s National Awards Dinner is the longest running and often the largest golf dinner held annually in the U.S. All of golf’s governing bodies actively support the dinner — USGA, PGA of America, LPGA and PGA TOUR — and up to 700 industry leaders, local golfers and golf groups attend. Proceeds benefit the caddie scholarship programs of Long Island, New Jersey and Westchester/Fairfield, and the MGA Foundation. More than $1.3 million has been raised over the years for these charitable endeavors.
