PGA Leadership

Paige Cribb Elected First Female President of Carolinas PGA Section

Paige Cribb, director of student support for Coastal Carolina University’s PGA Golf Management Program, has become the first female president of the Carolinas PGA.

Cribb's path to presidency of the largest of the PGA's 41 Sections began in 2014, when she was elected to serve as Section secretary. Her two-year term was followed by two years as vice president before moving into her current leadership position. Cribb will finish her eight years in office with a two-year term as past president.

Cribb is the fourth woman to serve as a president of a PGA Section, following Leslie Core-Drevecky in Colorado, Sue Fiscoe in Northern California and Kathy Swanson in Minnesota.

Having played multiple sports growing up, Cribb competed in her first junior tournament at the age of nine. She played collegiately at N.C. State before the school dropped women’s golf, then at UNC Wilmington. Near the end of her collegiate career, Cribb decided she'd rather be involved in the business of the game and entered the PGA program about a year after graduation.

Cribb was hired at Carolina Coastal University in 2008 and serves as a golf instructor, Level I class teacher, academic advisor, and club repair instructor.
