Glenwood Country Club, in Old Bridge, NJ, has named Sal Silvestrone as Head Golf Professional. A former Glenwood Country Club assistant pro in the mid-1980s, Silvestrone comes to Glenwood from Battleground Country Club where he served as head golf pro since 2001.
Silvestrone’s extensive experience also includes having served as the head teaching professional and assistant golf shop manager at Bethpage State Park, home of the famous Black Course, which hosted the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships.
He was also the Director of Golf at Eisenhower Park on Long Island, site of the 1927 PGA Championship. During his tenure at Eisenhower Park, he created a state-of-the-art teaching facility with seven PGA pros and assistants working under him. Silvestrone also won the Met Section PGA Merchandiser of the Year Award and brought many sectional tournaments to the course.
“We are very pleased to have Sal back at Glenwood as our head pro,” said Glenwood CC General Manager Anthony Spirito. His experience, personality and passion for the game will be great assets for the club and for our members. I know our members will enjoy getting to know Sal and vice versa.”
