Kent McComb’s collection of seven career Utah Section PGA awards is well rounded, although one theme emerges regularly. For the third time in his tenure as Bountiful Ridge Golf Course’s Head Professional, McComb is the Merchandiser of the Year for public facilities.
McComb is tied with retired pro Lynn Landgren of Salt Lake City’s golf program for the most public Merchandiser of the Year awards in Section history (Robert McArthur and Eric Nielsen each has three private awards). The further distinction is that Bountiful Ridge claims five awards, with Scott Whittaker having earned the first two in 1987 and ‘88.
Merchandising “has always been both a great tradition and a team effort at Bountiful Ridge,” McComb said. “We try to keep our entire staff involved as much as possible. We believe that when our staff is having fun with it and feels invested, we are able to provide a higher level of customer service.”
