Greg Fritz tapped for New Golden Eagle Golf Coach

CLARION, Pa. – Director of Athletics Dr. Wendy Snodgrass announced today that Gregg Fritz, a PGA Golf Professional with over 30 years of experience, will serve as Clarion’s new head women’s golf coach.  He replaces Dylan Reinsel, who had previously held that position since January 2016.

“We are excited to announce the addition of Gregg to our Golden Eagle family,” Snodgrass said.  “He has tremendous knowledge of the game and years of experience to back it up.  I’m confident that he will continue the growth of our program.”

Fritz has spent the last 28 years as the head golf professional at Pinecrest Country Club in Brookville, where he developed a junior golf program that produced a local state champion as well as other collegiate golf athletes.  In addition to his duties managing membership and on-course activities, he developed a lesson program for members and instructed the Brookville High School girls’ golf team.

“I am very excited for this opportunity to help build the Clarion women’s golf program,” Fritz said.

Before landing at Pinecrest, Fritz spent roughly four years at various other clubs across the country.  He spent three years as the assistant pro at Greensburg Country Club (1985-88) and two at Bridgeport Country Club (1983-85) in Bridgeport, W.Va.

Fritz is a Class A Member of the PGA as well as a member of the Tri-State Professional Golfers’ Association since 1983.  He has received the PGA of America Presidents Council for Growing the Game recognition.

He received his B.S.B.A. in Management from Slippery Rock in 1983, and currently resides in Brookville.
