Eric Thomas has been a golf professional at Ironwood Golf Course since 2010. Coming from an athletic family, Eric found his love for golf at the early age of three. Eric believes his influence of golf comes from his father, who’s the golf instructor at Buchholz High School. In the next five years, Eric aspires to be playing in the PGA tour, “I love the game, but the ultimate goal is to play professionally.”
Eric believes that golf is a sport in which the player must display the willingness to learn and be coachable. For those who are interested in taking up golf, Eric offers individual and group lessons. Eric also coaches private clinics and lessons for junior golf camps.
