Oct 11, 2012
Fabian D. McIntyre graduated from Golf Academy of America - Orlando in 1997. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, Fabian was introduced to golf at the age of 16 by his sister. Though golf was a prominent part of Fabian’s life, he initially pursued a career in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
Realizing that golf was his passion, Fabian and his wife Julie relocated to Florida so that he could attend Golf Academy of America. Upon graduation, Fabian became an Assistant Golf Professional at Rolling Hills Golf Club. After spending four years at Rolling Hills, the last two years as Pro Shop Manager, Fabian accepted the position of Assistant Golf Professional at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club. A year later, Fabian was named Head Golf Professional.
As Head Golf Professional at Falcon’s Fire, Fabian has contributed to all facets of the overall golf operation but has made merchandising a top priority. Due to the competitive climate of golf in Florida, the number of rounds played per year can vacillate, yet Falcon’s Fire has increased the dollar-per-player in merchandise sales by 9.7% and reduced the cost of sales percentage from 55% to 49% on average. Fabian and his five assistant professionals worked as a team and brought Falcon’s Fire Golf Club to the attention of the golf industry, having been awarded the following:
- 2006 & 2005 Golf World Business Magazine Top 100 Golf Shops
- 2005 PGA National Merchandiser of the Year
- 2005 Top 25 Merchandisers in American Golf Shop Magazine
- 2005 AGM Award for best golf shop renovation

Fabian is developing his very own full-service golf consulting company under the name of golfshopconsulting.com. It will fall under the umbrella of his parent company FJM Services, Inc. The website will be up and running by year’s end.
Fabian became a U.S. citizen in the year 2000 and was elected as a Class A Member of the PGA of America in 2002. Fabian has taken advantage of Golf Academy of America’s association with the University of Phoenix and is pursuing his Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing.
