The name Branca holds a certain acknowledged reverence at The
Country Club on Salt Lake City’s eastside. Much of that name
respect comes from the 50+ years that Tee Branca served as the
Golf Professional. Now they have another generation of Branca
achievement to add to the legacy. Ron Branca has been named The
Utah Section PGA Professional of the Year for 2011.
Chris Stover Utah Section PGA Secretary and Awards Chair noted
