Jonathan Golabek - Outside Services at Medinah Country Club, Medinah, Illinois
Mar 12, 2015
Jonathan Golabek is a 2013 Graduate of Golf Academy of America
What do you do as Outside Services Professional?
I make sure carts are clean and staged properly for members, guests and golfers participating in outings, club repair, bag room duties, setting up and taking down the range. I'm also counselor for a week-long Junior Golf camp. Oh yeah, and playing course No. 3.
How did Golf Academy of America prepare you for your current position?
I studied hard, and played as much golf as I could when I was at Golf Academy of America in Orlando. Career development teacher Alan Flasher was my go-to teacher there. Brendan Elliott also played an important role in growing my knowledge of Junior Golf.
Tell us about your career accomplishments since graduation.
I shot a course record of 68 at Pinewood Country Club in Harshaw, Wisconsin. I hope to play in about ten tournaments this summer, competing in the Golf Week Amateur Tour. I'm about to go hit some balls and its only 40 degrees here in Chicago. Dedication and hard work pays off!
