We are lucky to have our Head Golf Pro, Eric M. Smith manage our golf program here at Montclair Country Club.  Eric has previously been a golf pro at Raspberry Golf Academy in Loudoun County, Virginia and at Augustine Golf Club in Stafford, Virginia.

Eric loves helping our Juniors grow and understand the rules of the game, and is a coach for the PGA Jr. League.  He also is a coach and mentor for several High School Golf Programs.   He is apart of the Taylor made Demo team and is always looking to help our members hit the ball straighter and farther, allowing them to lower their scores.

From Eric, “Golf and helping people are my passions and my current position as head golf professional at Montclair Country Club allows me to fulfill both. I am privileged to serve in this beautiful, prestigious, golf facility as an instructor and club fitter to help each student learn and grow to be their personal best in the lifetime pursuit of conquering this great game. My daily goal is to make sure every golfer has a rewarding golf experience whether it concerns a round of golf, a club fitting, lesson, or an outing.- Eric

 

Philosophy

To communicate and teach a simple and more repeatable golf swing by analyzing each individual’s natural swing, athletic ability and personal goals.  I believe in incorporating personalized teaching instruction and development of a positive mental game for each student becoming more of a confident and consistent golfer.  Everyone has a unique swing that can be developed and maximized by using the state of the art equipment available at Montclair Country Club Golf Academy.  My students are important and helping them attain their goals is the paramount reason I teach.  I believe that helping students attain their goals and enjoy their golf game more will also help to “grow the game”.
