My name is Daniel Rettig. Prior to working toward PGA Class A certification I graduated St. Bonaventure University with a Batchelors in Physical Education. I then gained a Masters Degree from Canisius College in Sports Administration. After working as a substitute teacher in Hamburg, while at the same time working with the Buffalo Bills, I decided to change careers and focus on my passion, golf. I played High School golf for Hamburg High School and was a 4 time medalist in my Senior Season, but took a few years away from the game. In 2009 I rededicated myself to the game.
I worked for 1 year in the Golf Department at Dicks Sporting Goods in Blasdell NY. I then spent 3 seasons at Fox Valley Country Club in Lancaster NY as an Assistant Golf Professional. Following my time at Fox Valley, I took the Head Golf Professional Job at Tri County Country Club in 2013. Over the past 2 years I have taught hundreds of lessons. I also run a Junior Golf clinic with over 50 children each year, oversee all operations at the facility, and own/operate the golf shop at the facility. In 2015 I was named General Manager of the golf course in addition to staying on as the head professional.
