Eldorado’s Director of Golf is a native of California. Terry Beardsley was born in San Jose and moved to Palm Springs in 1965 at the age of 10. Beardsley attended San Jose State where he played in four NCAA championships. After graduation, he began his golf career at the North Shore Country Club in Chicago, Illinois. He was then appointed Head Professional at Tuckaway Country Club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he served for seven years. He was then recruited to work at Des Moines’ Wakonda Country Club. Terry has served on three PGA of America Section’s Board of Directors: Wisconsin, Iowa and Southern California. Over the past 37 years as a Club Professional, Beardsley, along with his wife Karen, who has served for many years as Head Merchandiser, have received “Merchandiser of the Year” awards 13 times along with Best Pro Shop. Two times the Beardsley’s have ranked among the Top 25 Pro Shops in the United States. Terry believes his greatest accomplishment in golf over the last three decades are not his numerous awards and recognitions or the fact that he played on the PGA TOUR or the Australian Tour, but rather the fact that 16 of his assistants have become head golf professionals following his mentorship.
