Golf Shop Staff with Bios

Jonathan R. Decker, PGA
Head Golf Professional

Prior to Transit Valley, I was the First Assistant Golf Professional at the Country Club of Buffalo as well as spending several winters at Calusa Pines Golf Club in Naples, Florida.  My first introduction to golf came while caddying at Red Run Golf Club in Royal Oak, MI just outside Detroit.  I quickly fell in love with the game and soon found myself immersed with everything that went on at the club.   After several successful seasons caddying, I was awarded a Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship to Michigan State University where I graduated with a B.A. in Finance. 

Upon graduation, my mother encouraged me to follow my passion and pursue a career as a golf professional.  I will forever be thankful for advice as I have truly enjoyed every day that I have been able to go to the club and help people play a game that means so much to me.  During my first summer in Buffalo, I was fortunate to meet my wife Katie Jordan at Music on Main in Williamsville.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling, fitness, spending time with my wife, golf course architecture, sustainability, and cheering on the Buffalo and Detroit sports teams.
