We like to welcome Paul Freda, a native of Monmouth County, New Jersey to the Westlake Golf & Country Club as our new Assistant Golf Professional. After graduating from Neptune High School in 2010, he attended the University of High Point in North Carolina where he graduated in 2015 with a degree in Health and Physical Education.

During his college years, he worked at the Manasquan River Golf Club, where he started as a caddie and worked his way up to Operations Manager, which also included responsibility as an Assistant Caddie Master.
