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.
