Dear Mr. Eshleman,
I wanted to write you a quick note to say how much I am enjoying working at The Country Club of Birmingham. I am one of your outside service staff and after only a few short months of working with you and your team, it has inspired me to make a change and look into golf as a career. I have started the PGA Associates program with hopes of continuing my work in golf on a full-time basis. With my current situation, I am in no rush to find a full-time position and will continue my current schedule and duties at CCB. However, as you know, the associate program takes time and eventually will require me to hold a specific type of position to gain the experience necessary to become a PGA member. If CCB or anyone you may know has a job that would fit that criteria, I would love the opportunity.

Country Club of Birmingham

The Country Club of Birmingham just celebrated their 125th anniversary and I am honored to be the 5th golf professional in the Club’s history. It’s a vibrant club with two Donald Ross golf courses and 1,650 members. I was originally hired as the Director of Instruction in 2001, then I became the Director of golf in 2006. We have one of the largest junior golf programs in the country and golf across all ages is thriving.


Our busy operation requires a large staff. We have 6 PGA Members and 4 Associates working towards membership. Our motto is “work hard and have fun!”
