Brian Lewis

Graduate of Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach

Head Golf Professional

Current Employer: Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC

Before deciding to pursue a career in golf, Brian Lewis was a combat medic and ICU nurse in the United States Army. These days, he’s Head Golf Professional at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club.

He says that the skills contributing to his success thus far have been an ability to relate to and communicate with people, and the ability to manage all facets of the golf operation. “The fact that I attended GAA and had a desire to learn the business opened a lot of doors for me,” Lewis says.

He advises current students to learn as much as they can while at Golf Academy of America. “Utilize the PGA professionals to get your game in order, pass the PGA’s PAT and find a club to start your apprenticeship,” says Lewis.
