Eric has a tremendous background in golf. He is not only a proven winner in the Professional ranks, but also was mentored by some of the best instructors in the world. Eric spent 5 years working under the tutelage of Craig Harmon at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY. Eric also learned from such instructors as: Billy Harmon, Charlie Epps, Chuck Cook, John Bierkan, Tom Dyer, Craig Shankland, Danny Caverly and more. Eric was awarded the Northeastern New York's PGA Merchandiser of the Year award for 2016 and again in 2018. In 2019 Eric was awarded as Northeastern New York's Teacher of the Year.
Eric is going into his ninth season with the Country Club of Pittsfield and continues to work hard to preserve the traditions of the Club. Eric and his staff focus on service, high quality member and guest events and top notch instructional offerings.
Our goal is to create a culture around continuous improvement. If we always strive to be better and anticipate the needs of our members and their guests, the Club will shine.
We will be seeing a lot of the same faces this year. This staff will be welcoming, knowledgeable and eager to help. We want to put an emphasis on service excellence. Everyone who is hired in the golf department will undergo an orientation led by the Head Golf Professional. This program will cover topics including; club history, community history, merchandising, service training, arrival & departure procedures and more. We want everyone who comes to the Club to feel welcome and leave happier than when they came. We cannot wait for the 2023 season!
Thank you for your continued support of our staff. If there is ever anything that we can do to improve your experience at the Club, please do not hesitate to let us know.
