Michigan PGA Member Frank Guastella wins MGCOA Lyle Leeke Award

Troy, MI  — When you volunteer for an organization like the Michigan Golf Course Owners Association or the PGA or your PTO or Rotary, for that matter, you either show up or you don’t. Not referring to just physically showing up but rather to the commitment it takes to follow through on the choice you make to be a volunteer, this is what the “Lyle Leeke Distinguished Service Award” is all about for the golf industry in Michigan. The 2015 recipient of the award is Frank Guastella.

Frank Guastella (St. Clair, MI), former owner of Red Fox Run in Gwinn and PGA Master Professional has been a 20 year member of the board of directors of the Michigan Golf Course Owners Association located in Lansing. Over these many years, Frank has served the Michigan Golf Course Owners in every capacity. He has served in each executive committee position and has had two terms as president. Frank continues to serve as a trustee of the Scott Family Educational Support Foundation and because of his experience with the Michigan Section PGA helps bring a unique perspective to broaden our outreach to members and nonmember alike. He is a recipient of the Dul Family Player Development Leadership Award. Frank also is a member of the Government Affairs Committee and is active in his local community with outreach to legislators.

The “Lyle Leeke Distinguished Service Award” is named after one of the founders of the MGCOA, a gentleman who helped create a voice for Michigan golf course owners. The recipient of the award is an individual who has displayed distinguished service to the MGCOA and the golf industry.

The MGCOA congratulates Frank on this significant honor.
