Eiserman, a former member of the Missouri State golf team, is the director of golf at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark.
So, what does a director of golf do?
“I’m responsible for running the entire golf operation,” Eiserman said. “I oversee everything from the pro shop, to teaching golf lessons, to handling player services, to managing tournaments. I also market the club and the professional golf staff.”
One tournament Eiserman oversees is the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship for the Ladies Professional Golf Association.
“This is the fifth consecutive year Pinnacle Country Club has hosted the LPGA’s Northwest Arkansas Championship. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun.”
The 2011 charitable event donated proceeds to hunger relief in the region.
While the sport of golf is nearly second-nature to Eiserman thanks to years of playing, it was at Missouri State that he found the opportunity to turn his sports interest into a potential career.
“I was initially drawn to Missouri State when I was offered a golf scholarship. I knew I wanted to study marketing or business. So the golf opportunity I had was fantastic.”
Eiserman’s career as a golf professional has led him to jobs in St. Louis, Tulsa and his current position in Rogers.
“Golf is something I have a skill set in, and I got a degree in something I’m passionate about,” Eiserman said. “My favorite part about my job is that every day is a little different. It’s a way of life.”
When he’s not at work, Eiserman enjoys spending time with his wife Shawn, 13-year-old daughter Sabrina and 11-year-old son Spencer.
“My family, especially my two kids, really inspires me.”
Eiserman looks forward to a long career in golf.
“I really enjoy sharing and promoting the game that I love and helping people grow in it.”
