Fahleson Returns to Idaho as IGA Executive Director

“We conducted a nationwide search and are pleased to be able to bring someone of Genger’s caliber to
Idaho,” said IGA President, Jeff Dunn. “She brings a great combination of skills and background to the IGA, and we couldn’t be happier with our selection.”

Ms. Fahleson comes to Boise from Far Hills, NJ where she has worked in the Department of Rules & Competitions for the United States Golf Association (USGA) since 1997. As the Director of Rules Education at the USGA, Fahleson oversaw more than 20 PGA/USGA Rules of Golf Workshops per year that were held around the country. She served as the Director of the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship (2002-2005) and Director of the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship (2005-2007). As well as serving on the USGA Women’s Committee (1994-1996) and USGA Women’s Amateur Public Links Committee (1993). She also served as a consultant to USGA Grants Department and LPGA/USGA Girls Golf Club and was a Rules Official at numerous U.S. Opens, USGA Amateur and Qualifying Events, LPGA Q-Schools, NCAA Championships and state, regional, and junior events.

Prior to her work at the USGA, Fahleson was a faculty member at Boise State University, College of Education; Department of Health, Physical Education & Recreation; and was the head coach of the women’s golf team at Boise State from 1994-1995.

“Ever since moving to New Jersey 14 years ago, I’ve told everyone who would listen that I wanted to retire in Boise and have always wanted to return,” said Ms. Fahleson. “When I was offered the position by the IGA Board, I couldn’t refuse. I get to return to Boise where there will be new challenges with the IGA, I still have quite a large circle of friends in the area and the move from NJ to Idaho will be a huge upgrade in the quality of life department. I’m really, really, really looking forward to getting back to the Northwest!”
