Nathan Troutman

Head Golf Professional & Operations Manager

Nathan’s teaching philosophy is simple: teach not what a golf swing is supposed to look like but instead how it should feel! Because each golfer has a unique body type, skill level, and athletic background, Nathan finds it most rewarding to tailor personal epiphanies to each of his students!

Nathan graduated Valedictorian from the Professional Golfer’s Career College and was Assistant Professional at Redhawk Golf Club in Temecula, CA. He entered the PGA Apprentice Program that same year and passed his Playing Ability Test on his first attempt.  Under the mentorship of  Steve Adamiak (former PGA Inland Empire Teacher of the Year), Nathan taught golf to players of all ages and abilities for 4 years before moving to Brea with his wife to start a family. Nathan returned to the golf industry in 2019 becoming the Operations Manager and Head Professional at Brea Creek. In addition to his duties at Brea Creek, Nathan also coaches the Frosh Boys Golf team at Mater Dei High School.
