About Justin

My name is Justin Hearley and I am 32 years old. I am married to my high school sweetheart Maria and we have a 2 year old son named Caiden and a baby girl on the way scheduled to arrive sometime in January of 2023. I am currently the PGA Head Golf Professional at Burden Lake Country Club in Averill Park, NY as well as the teaching professional at Olde Post Road Golf Club in Nassau, NY. I have been in the golf business since 2008 where I began my career while attending SUNY Delhi under the Professional Golf Management program. I worked as an Assistant Golf Professional from 2009-2021 at Normanside Country Club in Delmar, NY before taking my current job at Burden Lake. Since turning professional shortly after college in 2012 I have amassed 30 professional wins and 4 Majors in the Northeastern NY PGA Section. This past season I won 7 times and won Player of the Year for the 2022 season as well as the Vardon Low Stroke Scoring Average winner with a 70.35 scoring average. Teaching is my passion as well as junior golf. I own a Full Swing Launch monitor that i incorporate into my lesson series when needed. Let me help you become a better player and improve your golf game!
