Brian Fedish First Assistant Golf Professional The Polo Club
Aug 23, 2012
Brian left the military with no real knowledge of what he was going to do with his future. He says, "Attending the GAA was without a doubt the best decision I have made…"
"After serving four years in the military, including a tour to Afghanistan, I had no real knowledge of what I was going to do with my future. All I really had was my free time and golf clubs. After meeting many of the instructors and the director at the Myrtle Beach campus, I knew I wanted to make a career in the golf business.
The school was a great experience for me as it provided me with all the necessary skills and knowledge I needed to know to become successful in today's expanding golf business. While attending the academy I also work at TPC of Myrtle Beach and The Legends Resort on the golf maintenance crew. Following that, I was offered a position as First Assistant at Burning Ridge Golf && Country Club (the 2007 South Carolina Course of the Year). Here I was able to apply my school knowledge and learn more about the business while I continued to attend school.
After graduation, I moved to South Florida to work at The Polo Club of Boca Raton, a high-end private country club with two 18-hole championship golf courses. The timing couldn't have been better and thanks to the knowledge and experience provided by the Academy, I have been successfully working as a First Assistant Golf Professional here ever since. I work full time, year round and am nearing completion of my PGA/PGM bookwork. I plan to attend "The Final Experience" soon.
To this day I still keep in touch with the academy and those who have left since my tenure. Attending the GAA was without a doubt the best decision I have made and I am thankful for the all the opportunities provided to me."
