PGA Professional / Owner of Rollandia Golf Center and Magic Castle
“I have been in the golf business my entire adult life and became a member of the PGA in 1989. I started in the business of golf in 1978 at the tender age of 18 as an assistant golf professional, and the rest is just a blur. After the typical route of playing the role of ‘apprentice’, I became a head golf professional in 1985. We (my wife Angela and I) have been fortunate enough over the years to gain experience and knowledge that enabled us to pursue our dream of owning our own golf facility. Rollandia is that dream come true. Angela and I are thrilled to be here and we hope you enjoy Rollandia as much as we do.”
