Dan's Clubhouse

I have spent a lot of time learning the game of golf, and I bring that same passion and determination to the service that I provide my clients. I believe that I can be a valuable asset to helping you achieve your financial goals. One of my favorite ways to get better acquainted with my clients is to spend time together on the great golf courses of the world.

I am a member of Baltimore Country Club, Mountain Lake, and the Outpost Club. These affiliations, combined with my golfing friends throughout the country, have allowed me to play all 100 of the top 100 ranked courses in the United States.  The quest was completed after almost 20 years, on July 31st, 2019 at Nanea.  My first ranked course played was Pinehurst #2 in March of 2000.

In addition, I am a course rater with GolfWeek magazine and vote on its top 100 lists. The panel is a group of passionate golfers consisting of course architects, historians, leading professionals, and well-traveled golf enthusiasts. I hope you enjoy reading about some of my favorite places to play. I look forward to seeing you on the golf course!
