Every now and then we like to put the spotlight on the wonderful staff members that keep Queenstown Harbor running. Josh Hendricks is the newest member of our professional staff. Get to know a little more about him!
Josh was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina and has always had a passion for sports, fitness and health. Josh discovered a love and fire for the game of golf in high school and never looked back. He has a strong passion for playing the game and strives to improve not only himself, but golfers at any level who want to improve as well. When he’s not on the green, you can find this outdoor enthusiast at the beach or fishing on a boat.
Golf quickly became Josh’s career when he chose to attend Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina where he graduated with a BS Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in PGA Golf Management. Josh obtained his Class A membership into the PGA of America in 2013. He loves to teach and wants to help you to play more competitively, beat your low score, or to just have more fun on the course. Josh believes that the future of the game lies with the next generation of golfers and is excited to be a part of the growing junior program at the Academy at Queenstown Harbor as well as teaching golfers of any level. He knows that Queenstown Harbor is a destination for golfers of all ages and abilities and strives for the continued excellence we are known for!
What’s your favorite course and/or hole at Queenstown Harbor?
I can’t say that either course is a clear favorite over the other. They are two great tracks that offer challenges in different ways. I do however think that the back nine of the Lakes and the front nine of the River are the best 18 holes at Queenstown. As far as a favorite hole, I would have to say #15 of the Lakes. I love par 5’s and 15 is a great hole that tests accuracy off the tee and control on the approach. Like all par five holes, it is a fun risk/reward hole where you have the opportunity to post a good score or easily get in trouble if you aren’t smart.
What do you love most about working at Queenstown?
Working at Queenstown Harbor is always a new experience. I love the staff here. They are always friendly and are great with all guests of the club. We are focused on customer service here and we do an excellent job at making everyone feel like they are welcome every time the visit.
Do you have a favorite item in the Pro Shop?
We have a ton of great merchandise in our shop. You will be impressed with everything we stock and we take pride in knowing we have something for everyone. We just got the new Callaway Bertha Mini Driver. I had to take it out and try it for myself. It is an amazing club that all golfers of all types will like. I highly recommend it!
Favorite thing on the Queenstown Harbor Tavern menu?
If you ask any of the ladies in the Tavern they will tell you that my favorite item on the menu is the Bay Bridge Roast Beef Sandwich. It’s almost to the point where I don’t have to ask. I guess when you got something good stick with it!
