Dan Harrington named as new Home Course Head Golf Professional

Updated: December 30, 2014

PGA Professional Dan Harrington of Des Moines, Wash. has been named the new head golf professional at The Home Course, located in DuPont, Wash.

Harrington has 11 years experience as a PGA head golf professional, first as the head pro at Fairwood Golf & Country Club in Renton, Wash. and then as the PGA head golf professional at Meadow Park GC in Tacoma, Wash. He was instrumental at Meadow Park, a 27-hole publicly-owned facility, in creating player development programs, youth programs, and introducing Foot Golf as an activity at the course.

During his tenure at Meadow Park, Harrington began to establish his reputation as a leader in the golf industry. He was selected as the Western Washington Chapter PGA Junior Golf Leader Award recipient in 2005, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014; and in 2011 was selected as the Section’s Junior Golf Leader Award recipient for the entire Pacific Northwest. He was also the golf coach at Clover Park High School in Lakewood, Wash. for eight years.

Harrington is currently the Western Washington Chapter PGA president, and is one of the industry’s forerunners in growing the game.

As head professional, Harrington replaces Ron Hagen, who is retiring. Hagen, a longtime fixture in the region’s golf industry and a member of the Pacific Northwest Section PGA Hall of Fame, has been at The Home Course since its opening in June 2007, and guided the new course through its start-up phases. Hagen will stay connected with The Home Course in a temporary part-time consulting position, dividing his time between Arizona and his home in DuPont, Wash.
