DARYL MATHENY, PGA
Daryl Matheny began his tenure in 1988. A longtime Bremerton resident, Daryl knows well the challenges and joys of Washington golf. He expertly leads his team to ensure Gold Mountain Golf Club continues to stand as a leader in Pacific Northwest golf. In 1992 Daryl received his Class A status with the PGA of America and holds several additional PGA of America teaching and golf fitting certifications.
One of Daryl’s favorite aspects about golf at Gold Mountain Golf Club is having the diversity of the two courses – Cascade and Olympic – allowing visitors and all members of the community to come experience the beauty of golf in the Pacific Northwest.
Whenever he isn’t golfing or leading the charge at Gold Mountain Golf Club, Daryl can be found spending time with his family – wife Tammee and three teenage children – and enjoying the beauty and outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.
