Friedrich, who recently transitioned into the director of golf course renovations and development role, has been a PGA member for nearly 40 years. He started his career as a golf professional at Boyne Mountain Resort in 1976 and currently oversees Boyne’s 13 resort courses and semi-private clubs in Michigan, Maine and Montana.

“I’m honored and humbled to have my name on this award and be associated with the likes of previous winners,” says Friedrich. “I’m excited for our staff, PGA Professionals, and superintendents. Collectively, they are the winners of this award along with Boyne Resorts, for their dedication to golf and helping us continue to improve our product.”

Friedrich continues to serve in various capacities for the Michigan PGA, including the Michigan PGA Employment Committee. He is a founding member and board member of The First Tee of Northern Michigan and is a co-founder of Harbor Cup Fund, a Michigan-based charitable fund that has raised more than $700,000 since its inception in 1997.

This past year, Team Boyne, led by Friedrich, raised a record-breaking $90,000 for Manna Food Center, a Northern Michigan food bank, and The First Tee of Northern Michigan.
