Bill Brander - PGA Head Golf Professional
Bill Brander has been the PGA Head Golf Professional at Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Springwood Golf Club since January 2006. Brander was elected to Membership in The Professional Golfers Association on November 3, 2006 after a six-year apprenticeship.

He retired from Civil Serice in 2005 with 35 years of service.
Brander's teaching philosophy is based on a quote from Tony Lema, a great player and teaching professional. He said, "Golf is not a simple game, but it must be taught in a simple manner."
Our Golf Clinics, Camps, Private Lessons and Stafford Golf School are all taught in this manner. Brander is married to his wife Tracey and has two step children Jacob and Elena. Together they have a toddler named Aidan. Brander also has three children from his first marriage, Susanne, Wil and Lorraine and one grandchild Vera Grace.
Brander's focus and passion as a Golf Professional is in teaching golf. Brander's best round at Heritage Hills is a 72. Other hobbies, when not golfing, include tennis, watching golf, hockey and baseball. He is also the Golf Coach at York Catholic High School.

Many players do not properly release the putter, so to practice this feeling, hit putts with just your back hand. For example, a righty would use just his right hand.
