Brett Moyer
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – A 0.8-handicap golfer with three years of experience as an assistant golf pro, Muncy resident Brett Moyer is set to begin his first year as the head men’s golf coach at Lycoming College, director of athletics Mike Clark announced on Friday, Aug. 12.

“I am extremely excited that Brett will be joining us as the head men’s golf coach,” Clark said. “He is an outstanding player and has a great background as a teacher of the game. Throughout our talks, Brett made clear that he has an interest in helping our players improve and become lifelong lovers of the game. With our growing relationship with Williamsport Country Club and our continued relationship with White Deer Golf Course and an expanded schedule that will include a fall season for the first time in program history, we are looking forward to the future for Warrior golf.”

Moyer added, “I would like to thank President Trachte and Director of Athletics Mike Clark for this unique opportunity. I am excited to take on the challenge of moving the Warrior golf program in an upward direction. To have the chance to improve student-athlete golfers at the college level is an opportunity I am thrilled to accept.  We will work hard as a team to put Lycoming college golf on the map.”

After earning a Bachelor’s degree in professional golf management from Penn State in 1996, Moyer spent three summers at Arcola Country Club in Paramus, N.J., as an assistant golf pro, where he helped run the pro shop and instructed club members with golf lessons. During his time at the club, he qualified for the New Jersey State Golf Association Open Championship in both 1997-98.

After transitioning into a sales career, Moyer has continued to stay active in golf. He has carded a nine-hole 29 at White Deer Golf Course’s Vintage Course and he has also shot two 18-hole rounds of 64. He also has two hole-in-ones to his credit.

Active in the local community, Moyer has also served as a volunteer with the Muncy Youth Football Association.

Moyer is a market sales manager with Masonite International. A native of Cressona, Pa., he and his wife, Jodie, have two sons, Kolby and Harley, and two daughters, Lily and Shelbie.

The Warriors open the 2016-17 season on Tuesday, Sept. 13, when they head to the Messiah College Falcon Classic at the Blue Ridge Country Club in Harrisburg.
