Tom, a graduate of Miami University, actively competes in the Southern Ohio PGA’s tournament schedule. Tom has been a member of the PGA of America’s President’s Council for promoting the game of golf since 2005.

Brian Fennen, Assistant Professional Brian Fennen, a PGA member, grew up and played locally at Lebanon High School. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in PGA Golf Management and Marketing. While in the program, Brian gained valuable teaching and business experiences through various high profile internships throughout the country. He most recently came from Kenwood Country Club where he was an Assistant Professional.
Brian believes without the mind, the body will never be able to hit a truly pure golf shot, no matter the club technology. Along with instilling a positive mindset, he believes it is his job as a golf professional to work as an artist to create and sculpt his students' swings into their own individual style. He believes fundamentals are important building blocks, but there is neither a cookie cutter swing nor teaching method for every golfer. Brian works in a low pressure, yet organized fashion designed to help a student achieve his or her goals.
