About Elmer

I am starting my 20th season as a golf professional! I served as the Head Golf Professional at Meadow Lane Golf Course in Indiana, PA for 17 seasons and I am currently an Assistant Golf Professional at Edgewood Country Club. I was the Head Girls’ Golf Coach for Indiana High School for 10 years from 2012-2021. I played collegiate golf for both Slippery Rock University and Millersville University. I have created successful programs for Junior golfers and transitioned that into a successful coaching career at the High School level. I created numerous Ladies clinic/programs that has brought new players into the game and those programs continue today. I have recently received my coaching certification for PGA Hope which is a program for teaching Veterans with disabilities. If you are a new golfer (male, female, young or older) that wants to learn the game of golf so you can play with your friends, if you are a weekend golfer and you want to improve your scores, if you are a high school player that wants to play in college, I want to help you meet your golfing goals. I bring a life-long passion for the game of golf, desire to play and teach the game to all level of players. Give me a call and I will help you!
