Being an amateur to everything golf I am excited to embark on an adventure where I learn from the best about the sport. For ten weeks I will be sitting down with head professionals at golf courses surrounding the Ocean City area.
This week I had the opportunity of speaking with Bob Croll at Eagles Landing Golf Course. It was a great relief to have sat with a man who was so optimistic about sharing information about a course he’s so familiar with.
Like many college graduates Croll went to school for geography and found a career that had no relationship with his degree. “I moved to the beach after college and ran into a buddy of mine who was running this golf course [Eagles Landing] who got me a job parking carts.” After four years of parking carts Croll went to golf school to become a certified pro. He has now been the head pro at the facility for the past 10½ years.
