Thomas was named our Director of Golf in 2018. Prior to being our Director of Golf, he was the PGA Head Golf Professional from 2015 to 2018. He has had the privilege to work with some of golf industry's best professionals and several Clubs including - Orinda Country Club (Orinda, California), Wichita Country Club (Wichita, Kansas), The Country Club at Loch Lloyd (Kansas City, Missouri). However, he finally found his home at Stonebriar with a great team and Membership.

Over the course of his career in the golf industry, Thomas was named the 2015 US Kids Top 50 Honorable Mention and was a part of the 2013 & 2014 AGM Platinum Award winning team at Wichita Country Club. Most recently being awarded, ClubCorp National Rising Star for Golf in 2016. However, the most rewarding part of his career is working with several different charitable organizations over the years including serving as the Golf Tournament Chair for the CYC (Community Youth Center) Child Advocacy Center.

Thomas' favorite part about being a part of Stonebriar is the Membership. The Membership is what makes the Club. Without their support and encouragement, our golf operation would not be as successful as it is.

In his free time, Thomas enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors. Next time you are at the Club, ask him how you improve your swing!

Email Jason Brown

Jason was raised in Sherman, Texas where he competed in a variety of sports such as basketball, football, and baseball. He lettered in baseball at Sherman High School where he graduated in 1995. He went on to play golf at Austin College in Sherman, earning Academic All-Conference honors his last two years. Jason graduated from Austin College in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

Jason grew up playing recreational golf with family but fell in love with the game in college. Outside of playing golf, Jason enjoys fishing, basketball, and softball.  Jason has been with Stonebriar since the fall of 2000, recently being promoted to Golf Shop Manager at the Fazio Course. He loves working with golfers of all types. Jason feels especially comfortable working with left-handed golfers, since he is indeed left-handed. Jason recognizes every golf swing is different and believes the golf instructor should conform to the student instead of trying to make the student conform to the instructor. 

He feels the best part of the job is getting outside and playing golf with Members. He currently lives in McKinney.
