Twin Brook Golf Center - Bill Britton

Name:  Bill Britton
Age: 51
Course: Twin Brooks Golf Center
Family: Wife-Isabelle, Children-Kevin, Caitlin, Ashley and Claire
Handicap: 0
Best Round and where: 63 at Killearn CC in Tallahassee Florida and twice at Wethersfield CC in Hartford, CT

How you got into golf:
My two older brothers played golf growing up and we lived near a golf course in Staten Island, NY.

Positions/jobs before your current position/course:
I played for 15 years on the PGA Tour.  I was then an Assistant Pro at Old Oaks CC and Green Brook CC.  Following that I became a Teaching Pro at Montammy GC and Chelsea Piers.  And before coming to Twin Brooks Golf Center I was the Co-Head Pro at Eagle Oaks GC for 5 years.

How you arrived at your current position/course:
A good friend of mine, Pat Jordon, asked me to join her at her Golf School

What you like most about your job:
I get to share my knowledge and love for the game with many people in a very enjoyable work environment.

What makes your course special/favorite thing about your course:
Our facility is special because you can get a lesson or practice here year round because of our covered and heated area, as well as our indoor area.  Also, our School has the ability to teach everyone; from the beginning golfer to the playing professional.  My favorite thing about the facility is the wide range of people that come to us.

Favorite Course (other than your own) locally (New Jersey/Eastern, Pa.) and anywhere else in the world:
I would have to say locally it would be Plainfield CC.  And anywhere in the world would have to be between Pebble Beach and Shinnicock Hills.

Best golf tip you can give or ever got:
Find out what your weakness is, find out what is the cause of this weakness and then go about fixing it.

Parting Shots: Play within your abilities and limitations.  Play only the shots you know you are capable of hitting.
