Assistant Golf Professional – Manito G&CC

May 2018 – Oct. 2018

I returned to Manito G&CC for a second season as an assistant golf professional. This season had many similar aspects to the first, and I will list a few ways in which it was different.

  • Responsible for the Men’s Member-Guest Invitational betting purse. Overseeing payouts, day-to-day totals, and end of tournament reconciliation.
  • Designed, and began implementing, a financial processes plan to better track revenues, and invoices.

Mar. 2017 – Oct. 2017

I worked an outside service position the previous spring, and I was asked to work in the pro shop the following season. I accepted the position, and began my career in the PGA. Before I began working at Manito I passed my P.A.T and qualifying courses to register as an apprentice. While at Manito I registered as an apprentice and purchased my Level 1 courses.

As the Third Assistant Golf Professional I was responsible for;

  • Helping to revise the job description and training manual for outside service attendants
  • Training outside service attendants on new range set-up, navigating new cart-barn design, customer service, regripping clubs, and general procedures expected of attendants
  • Supervising outside service attendants throughout season
  • Operating pro shop by answering phone calls, placing member orders, operating Foretees (tee sheet program), and executing transactions
  • Setting-up tournaments, entering scores, and producing results with Golf Genius Software
    • Couples Twilight Events
    • Men’s Matchplay
  • Assisting with junior camps, PGA Jr League practice, and member sponsored clinic
  • Maintaining grip inventory and mini-fridge food stock

I had the opportunity to participate in work-related events that included;

  • IEPGA Pro-Am at Hayden Lake G&CC
  • Golf With Staff
    • members of staff play a scramble with the 18-hole ladies
  • IEPGA 2UNDR Spring Pro-Pro
