Graduate of Golf Academy of America in San Diego
Current Employer: Golf Academy of America in Phoenix
Tim Eberlein didn’t start his career working in the golf industry. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Perhaps it was that attention to detail that drew him toward an education in Golf Operations and Management at what is now known as Golf Academy of American in San Diego. He says his schooling, "gave me the foundation to start my teaching career and an entrance into the golf industry as a First Assistant after graduation."
Eberlein has since earned the title of PGA Master Professional and Director of Golf Academy of America in Phoenix, as well as an MBA degree. He is a board member of the Southwest PGA. Eberlein advises his students to, "take advantage of every opportunity GAA gives you--education, volunteering, playing and networking."
