Eric is originally from Michigan and moved to Atlanta about three years ago from New York with his wife, Fernanda and fur-child Zoe. While in New York he was the Assistant Golf Professional at Somers Golf Course. In his time with ClubCorp he was the Assistant Golf Professional and then the Director of Operations at Sun City Peachtree in Griffin, GA. He has been in the golf industry for over 13 years and has valued every minute of it. Golf holds an extra meaning to Eric as his grandfather introduced him to the sport at the young age of five years old. Dreaming to play professionally lead him to his role at the Club as he was effortlessly drawn to building relationship with people and teaching the wonderful sport of golf. He also enjoys the outdoors and anything that allows him to become one with nature. His hobbies include snowboarding, boating, fishing, and hiking. Eric invites our Members to feel free to stop by his office to talk golf, life celebrations, or about the University of Michigan. Go Blue!
