Paramount Names Steve Scott Head Pro
Scott, who played on the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, and had two victories on the Canadian Tour, turned professional in 1999. The now 34-year-old also has been the number-one-ranked amateur in the U.S. (1999), member of two Walker Cup teams and the U.S. World Amateur Team, and winner of both the stroke and match-play sections of the Western Amateur (1999). Scott also competed in the 1996 U.S. Open Championship and 1997 Masters.
“I’m very excited to be coming to Paramount,” Scott said, “a club with a great membership, long history, and outstanding reputation. The course is a hidden gem, one of the best layouts in the Metropolitan Area. It’s a shame more people don’t know more about it, but I certainly hope to help change that.”
For the past three years, Scott was head golf professional at The Ridge at Back Brook in Ringoes, NJ. A three-time All American at University of Florida, course commentator for Golf Channel and teacher at the Golf Digest Instructional Schools, Scott also was assistant golf professional at Canoe Brook Country Club (Summit, NJ), Jupiter Hills Club (Tequesta, Florida), and Hidden Creek Golf Club (Egg Harbor Township, NJ).
Paramount Country Club, founded in 1920, is a private club located on 217 acres of rolling hills high above the Hudson River in Rockland County, NY. The course was originally designed by Golden Age architect A.W. Tillinghast and is currently being renovated by Jim Urbina. When completed, the course will have many of its original strategic elements restored. It also will boast the one-of-a-kind “Reef Hole,” an especially challenging par-3 design that Tillinghast invented and used on some other courses, but exists today only at Paramount.
“I’ve been privileged to work at some of the finest clubs in the country,” said Scott. “I think I have an understanding of great architecture and there is no doubt in my mind that Paramount is right up there with the best of them. When Jim Urbina completes his restoration of Paramount many people will be amazed at what has been covered up for all these years. This is a wonderful opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.”
