Welcome Scott Adland, Our New Director of Instruction
Dear Kalamazoo Country Club Members,
It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of Scott Adland as our Director of Instruction. Scott, who will be joining our KCC team on March 15th, was most recently the Director of Instruction at the esteemed Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, VI.
A native of Sydney, Australia, Scott began playing the game of golf at the age of seven (7), honing his skills at a young age before becoming Junior and Club Champion at his home course by the age of fifteen (15). After much success early in his career, Scott pursued a professional path that led to him turning professional at the age of eighteen (18).
After turning professional, Scott sought out an education at the PGA Academy of Australia, ultimately graduating in 2001 with distinction honors in both playing and coaching. Following graduation, Scott competed professionally on the PGA Tour of Australasian and PGA Nationwide Tour (currently the Korn Ferry Tour) for nine (9) years, competing in multiple Australian Opens and PGA Championships.
Following his playing career, Scott’s interest and dedication to teaching lead him into the field of instruction. Scott has more than ten (10) years of experience as Golf Coach and Director of Instruction at esteemed facilities across the United States. Although Scott has taught more than a dozen tour professionals on all major tours around the world, his career goal is being an integral part in lowering the national golf handicap and increasing the enjoyment that others have in the game of golf. Scott’s passion is to aid every golfer in achieving their individual goals.
In addition to his vast knowledge, and love for the game, Scott also has an extensive fitting background and is currently a member of Callaway’s National Fitters Board.
In 2014, Scott met his wife Nicole whom he married a few years later in Phoenix, Arizona. Scott and Nicole are the proud parents of their son, Cooper Scott, who recently turned 2 years old. When not at the Club, Scott enjoys spending time at home with his family, and 3-year-old Lab Retriever, Beckham. Scott is also a recreational soccer player and loves watching his beloved Manchester United whenever possible!
Please join us in welcoming Scott to our team as he begins his journey at Kalamazoo Country Club for the betterment of our Club and membership.
