Top 100 Golf Academy of America Alumni

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 his ability to maintain composure while managing as keys to his success. “Golf Academy of America taught me a lot about what to expect from the real world,” says Lloyd. “Being able to hit curve-balls on a daily basis is invaluable. The GAA prepared me to react to different situations, without having time to prepare for them.”

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 stay focused and take initiative. “There are thousands of people out there that can answer a phone and make tee times, but there are not many that provide the customer service standards appropriate to a golf course and its members,” says Lloyd. “Stay focused on advancement and know that initiative will get you there.”

What's in His Bag? Callaway

Golf Ball of Choice: Bridgestone

Best part of his job: “One of the things I enjoy most is meeting new people every day from all the different populations. On a daily basis, I never know who's going to come through our clubhouse doors. Professionally, I love to teach. Spending time one-on-one with people and learning their stories is a cool experience.”
