His love of the game started long before he played with Bubba Watson and Michelle Wie. Adam picked up his first set of clubs at the age of 11 when his grandpa offered to take him off the family farm and onto the golf course. That’s all it took for Adam to follow his new found passion, later playing for both the University of South Carolina at Aiken and Boise State University.
Adam joined The Club at SpurWing in 2008 with more than six years of teaching experience and his Class A PGA Member status. In 2010, Adam was promoted to PGA Head Professional for The Club. In Spring of 2014 he moved to a Director of Golf position and in the Fall of that same year made the change to Director of Golf & Club Operations.
He’s played in the Boise Open four times and has three National PGA Club Professional Championships under his belt. While Adam loves the competition of the game, he says there’s more to just playing, it’s also about teaching. With four young sons at home, he has a passion for teaching and mentoring the junior golfers. Adam says he enjoys the setting of a private club because it gives him the opportunity to get to know the members and provide outstanding customer service.
When he’s not at The Club, you can find Adam spending time with his family and coaching his four boys in a variety of sports.
An all-around athlete growing up, Brett played just about every sport except golf. When his mom invited him to play, he found the sport frustrating yet invigorating and has been hooked ever since.
After graduating from the University of Idaho with a business degree in Information Systems, Brett changed course and decided to follow his true passion of golf. He’s been involved with the game, either playing or working, for over 14 years. In 2007, Brett earned his Class A PGA Professional status while working at a club in Idaho Falls. It was there that he honed his skills as an instructor and focused much of his time with the junior golf program.
Brett was able to bring that experience to The Club at SpurWing in 2010. He says he really enjoys teaching because each student is different and being able to help those individuals achieve their full potential is just one of the reasons he has enthusiasm for the game.
During his free time, you’ll find Brett behind the grill cooking for his family. Or you might find him watching the sky. He’s not daydreaming; aside from golf he is fascinated with weather patterns. Because much like the game of golf, weather can change in an instant.
I would like to introduce myself as your new Head Golf Professional. I’m very excited to be part of The SpurWing team. Over the past few years, I’ve enjoyed visiting The Club as a guest and have always been impressed with our staff and facilities. A PGA Member with 23 years of Head Professional experience, I am passionate about the game of golf and will add what I can to your experience at The Club. I will be involved in all areas of the golf operation. Prior to joining our team, I was the Head Golf Professional at Whitetail Club in McCall from 2009-2016. I also served as the Head Professional in the Treasure Valley at Hillcrest Country Club from 1999-2008. My wife of 23 years is a Boise native. We have three boys, two in college and the youngest is a sophomore at Capital High.
Bobby Holmes, Assistant PGA Professional
Bobby started playing golf at the age of 14. Growing up, he was considered a natural at all sports including bowling, where he has thrown two perfect 300 games. Playing the game golf was different, he didn’t stand out right away and that drove him to improve. He taught himself how to play on a small nine-hole course in Emmett. Each evening, when the sun was going down, you would always find Bobby practicing.
Bobby joined the PGA Golf Management program at the University of Idaho in 2011 and graduated with a Marketing degree and his PGA certification in May of 2016. He joined the Club at SpurWing in the summer of 2015 as an intern and now works as a golf professional in the golf shop.
When Bobby isn’t at the club you can find him on summer nights with his friends on the Snake River in search of a state record catfish. In the winter you can find him on the same river in the early mornings calling at flocks of ducks and geese.
