Head Golf Professional
Current Employer: Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas
After working almost 20 years and earning the status of Journeyman Electrician, Rhett Alvord was ready for a change. He worked in sales for a short time before deciding to pursue a career in golf at Golf Academy of America in Dallas.
Today, the PGA Apprentice sites management and people skills as the valuable assets that earned him the title of Head Golf Professional at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas. "Golf Academy of America helped me with the teaching skills I needed to have credibility with my students, and also with learning tournament operations," says Alvord.
He reminds students that, "How you perform in school is typical of how you will perform on the job. Apply yourself. Get the most out of school."
