From the Pro ~ March 2020
Dear Ligonier Country Club Members,
First and foremost, let me tell you know how excited and extremely fortunate to be selected as your Head Golf Professional. I would like to thank the Board of Directors and The Search Committee for this wonderful opportunity. I was born and raised in Latrobe, so it feels great to be back in the area. I started my professional career at Latrobe Elks Golf Club, moved on to Sewickley Heights Golf Club, eight years at The Pittsburgh Field Club and most recently at Edgewood Country Club as the First Assistant Golf Professional.
Along with myself there will be many new faces in the Golf Operation. Jesse Cantley will be my Assistant Professional and will be here starting March 10. Jesse comes from Edgewood Country Club as well as TopGolf in Bridgeville.
Golf Shop- Most of the merchandise will be delivered during the month of March so bear with me during the process of transitioning the golf shop. Golf merchandising has always been one of my favorite aspects of the job.
- Members will receive 20% off retail on all apparel and accessory items
- Demo product & a FlightScope launch monitor will all be available for all fittings
- Online only sales featuring one of a kind unique product
- A weekly newsletter will be emailed featuring upcoming events, sign up procedures, corporate specials and much more
Member Events & Clinics- A wide range of men’s, ladies, couples, and parent/junior events, men’s and ladies Golf Shop match play events and Fitting Days will be on hand. I will also conduct diverse golf clinics, women only clinics and an extensive junior golf program. We will also be hosting a wedge fitting day for the new Titleist SM8. Fliers and information for these will be sent out very shortly.

Handicaps- The World Handicap System went into effect on January 1 and you should have received your new handicap index. Documents will be placed throughout the Golf Shop and bulletin boards with the changes. These changes will be in my first newsletter coming in March.
We look forward to meeting everyone, warm temperatures, lower scores and an outstanding 2020 FUN year at Ligonier Country Club
