*I began my golf carreer as an Assistant Professional, Downriver Golf Course for 9 seasons. I became a Teaching Professional at Indian Canyon Golf Course, then for 5 years as General Manager, Head Golf Professional, Priest Lake Golf Club. After Priest Lake Golf Club, I moved back to Spokane and for 7 years, I was the Head Golf Professional at Sun Dance Golf Course. I became the PGA Head Proffesional at Prairie Falls Golf Club for 2 season, then took a position at GolfTEC Spokane, where i currently reside.
In 2010, I saw a need for a tournament raising awareness for the Wounded Warriors Project, so I created the Dan Kleckner's Golf Classic benefitting the WWP and Local Veterans in need. To date, we have raised over $120,000.00 for the Wounded Warrior Prject and local veterans organizations.
I also created VETS on the Green, a 501 (c) 3 non profit. VETS on the Green helps veterans, disabled or not, with golf lessons and access to their local golf courses.
