Butch HoltzclawDirector of Golf
I started my golf career at the age of 13 working as a bag boy at Rehoboth Beach Country Club. After graduating from the University of Delaware, while employed at Kings Creek Country Club I turned professional in 1993. I became a PGA class A member in 1996 while working at Rehoboth Beach Country Club. In 1997, I was hired as the Head Golf Professional at the Salt Pond Golf Club. Finally in 2000, I moved to the Rookery Golf Club where I still work today and I am the Director of Golf. Last year I became a Quarter Century Member of the PGA. In my 40 years of working in the golf industry I have had the joy of working with golfers of all levels. I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with the Special Olympics, Delaware Autism and the First Tee of Delaware. Other highlights include in 2007 becoming a PGA Certified Professional in Instruction, General Management, Ownership/Leasing, Golf Operations, Retail and Executive Management. In 2015, I was elected to the Eastern Shore Golf Hall of Fame.
