Charlie Brown, PGA
Member Head Professional
Charlie Brown Member Head Professional at Geneva National. I have been in the golf business all my life, starting with the summer of my junior year in high school when I served on the grounds crew at Johnson Park, a public facility. I then competed on the golf team at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where I majored in business management. Upon graduation, I was encouraged by my boss to turn professional in 1991. I served my apprenticeship and attained my “Class A” PGA Membership in 1998, resulting in a joyful and eventful 20+ year professional career in the golf business. During this time, I have been fortunate to win numerous tournaments. I earned Wisconsin PGA Player of the Year in 2003, 2004, and 2006, which led to my being named Wisconsin PGA Player of the Decade 2000-2009. I continue to compete and enjoy playing with and teaching golfers of all abilities and am particularly enthusiastic about helping Members bring their game to the next level.
