I would like to introduce Brien Agler as our new Superintendent of Staley Farms Golf Club.
BRIEN AGLER BIOBrien was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas where his parents still live to this day. His father is a PGA golf professional which is where his love for the game came from. As a kid Brien would go to work with his dad in the summer and spend the entire day hitting balls and swimming in the pool…. He says he had it made. As Brien got into junior high and high school, his summers were spent with his Mom, traveling throughout the region playing in golf tournaments which ended up earning him a scholarship to play collegiate golf. Then after 1 year he realized how good you really needed to be in order to make the tour so Brien decided to come back home to Fayetteville and finish his college career. Brien had really enjoyed agriculture classes in high school so he decided to combine that with his passion for golf. So, four years later he graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Degree in Turfgrass Management. After 8 years as an assistant in the state of Arkansas at 2 high end country clubs, Brien made the move to Kansas City in order to find a bigger and better golf market. He landed at The National Golf Club of Kansas City for 2 years and Indian Hills Country Club for 3 until he received his first Head Superintendent Position at Deer Creek Golf Club. Brien has been at Deer Creek since April of 2017 and has improved the overall golf course maintenance operation in his time there. Brien was awarded Superintendent of the year honors in 2017 by the Heart of America Golf Course Superintendent Association. Brien is excited and honored to now become Head Golf Course Superintendent at Staley Farms where he will continue improve course conditions and all maintenance operations.
