Billy Downes, PGA
Head Golf Professional
Tying for 6th place in the New England Classic on the PGA Tour, Billy then continued with four full seasons on The Nike Tour, finishing in 2nd place at his best. He has always had a love for golf and has been with GreatHorse since the very start, standing beside the Antonacci Family in the development stages of the new club. After 36 years in the sport, and his continued love for teaching and attention to customer service, Billy knows he is well equipped to elevate the golf experience for the membership here and plans to do every day.
I enjoy helping bring out the best golfer in every person, at every level.
