Brian Barker, the new Head Golf Professional at the Lake Forest Yacht and Country Club in Daphne, is a native of San Antonio. He graduated from the Golf Academy of America with a degree in Complex Management. Barker also served in the United States Navy as a Petty Officer.
He’s only been in his new position since January; but, if he looks familiar, it’s because he was also the PGA Professional at Dicks Sporting Goods in Daphne for five years until Dicks made a corporate wide decision to cut all their PGA Pros on staff. In one day 530 were down-sized.
Brian and his wife Julie have two children: a son, Caden, age 4, and a daughter, Jenna who’s twelve. When he’s not busy at work, the Pro enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf.

His answers to my bucket list question were pretty far apart: A trip to Augusta National for the Masters, along with a more daring jump from a plane to try his hand at skydiving.
