Tyler Erb

Head Professional 

Class “A” PGA of Canada Member


I am a former division 2 NCAA golfer for Indiana University of Pennsylvania and have over 10 years of competitive golf experience. This season will be my 7th year at Glencairn and first as Head Professional. With all my experience I have been able to learn from lots of great instructors. When it comes to teaching, I enjoy working with students to achieve their goal. I believe that if you work through the proper process results will follow that. Every player has a different way of getting better and playing their best and my job is to figure out what way will work best for my students. I believe that with proper practice and support golfers at all skill levels can achieve their goals and I look forward to helping them along the way.
