Trevor Lloyd

Graduate of Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach

Head Golf Professional

Current Employer: Links on the Bayou in Alexandria, Louisiana

As Head Golf Professional at Links on the Bayou, PGA Member Trevor Lloyd runs a facility Golf Digest has ranked the best municipal golf course in Louisiana. He names people skills and work ethic as keys to his success. "There are a lot of things that can be taught or learned, but for me, knowing how to communicate to so many different populations has been one of my biggest attributes," says Lloyd. "GAA helped me in preparing for these circumstances. It taught me the responsibility of getting tasks and projects completed by given deadlines, and also, helped me mature into a sociable person, which is demanded of the golf industry."

In his daily work, Lloyd manages all aspects of golf course operations, including instruction, customer service and tournament operations. He encourages Golf Academy of America students to, "take advantage of every opportunity. Take your classes and your work seriously. If you don't, your habits will be reflected in your professional career, and that can affect your future. Enjoy your time, but always do your best."

What's in His Bag? Titleist

Golf Ball of Choice: Titleist

Best part of his job: "I enjoy coming up with creative ideas on how to grow the game. The clientele is always changing, so that presents me with the ongoing challenge of adapting alongside them. I also really enjoy merchandising because I own the pro shop at my facility. That gives me a greater investment in not only the company I work for, but the people I work with."
