“My dad got me started and I became the #1 player on my high school golf team for four years.” “with a Golf scholarship I went to Georgia State University and after that worked in the golf business starting in 1994. I came up the ranks of cart boy, Assistant Professional, Head Professional, and General manager of many golf clubs.”
After working as an assistant at various golf clubs, he was the Head Golf Professional at three different country clubs during his career. ”My passion is teaching golf, and that is why I became a golf professional,” expressed Parker. With over 20 years of golf teaching experience, he believes the most important thing any golf professional can do is to promote the game.
Helping kids learn and improve the game is huge for parker. He started a bi-anual golf tournament in Atlanta to support an orphanage called Christian City in an effort to give back.

His goal is to make the center the place for all your golfing needs by adding a full retail line and continuing his instructions and practice with area golfers of all ages.
