The Fortress is excited to welcome our new first assistant to the company. Nick Sears, formally of Flint Golf Club, comes aboard with plenty of playing and teaching experience. As a graduate of Flint Powers, Nick traveled to play on scholarship at Madonna University and was named Captain for both his junior and senior years, leading the team to play in two national championships. Following his senior year, he took on a coaching role for the Madonna Girls Golf Team, helping them earn top 25 rankings in the NAIA all four years. Flint Golf Club welcomed Nick to their staff in 2015 as a first assistant professional until February of this year. Nick brings plenty of experience both on the teaching and playing side, as well as the day to day operations of the course. Stop by and introduce yourself to him, you may just save some shots on the course!
