I first joined Golf Town as a student working part time as a sales associate during the school year. From day one, I realized the investment the company had made to its employees and was fully committed to offering the highest level of customer service. This amazing culture has remained consistent throughout the years and has motivated me to become a general manager and continue to be part of a team dynamic that thrives on growing the game of golf. I can honestly say that it has been a fun ride and I am proud to be a part of this exceptional organization.
