The vision of Newbury Golf Center started in 1999, the year our founder, Erik Sorensen, graduated from college. He envisioned opening a state of the art practice facility on the North Shore of Boston. Growing up on the North Shore and having worked at a golf course since he was a child, he saw the opportunity in this area. As other opportunities in the golf world opened, he put this dream on the back burner for almost 20 years. During those years Erik built a career as a club professional working at four top 100 courses, including Myopia Hunt Club, Augusta National Golf Club, Mountain Lake, Isleworth, and Dorset Field Club. During his career Erik was a head professional for the last 7 years, owning and operating his own pro shop. During these years Erik has been recognized at a national level as a Top 50 kids Teacher by US Kids as well as Best in State Teacher by Golf Digest. He was also recognized on a local level by the PGA of America, as a five-time Vermont Chapter award winner. He has been a Class A PGA Professional since 2001.
His passion has always been teaching and providing instruction for all levels of players. Newbury Golf Center will focus on an extensive teaching program for all levels and ages of players. The focus and goal will be to become one of the top teaching facilities in New England.
