Born in Amarillo, Texas, Donovan Browning was first introduced to golf at the age of 7 and remained passionate about the sport throughout his childhood. His love for the game grew to where he wanted to make golf his primary focus both personally and professionally. While attending Arizona State University, Donovan studied Agribusiness Management with an emphasis in Professional Golf Management.
Donovan brings tremendous golf course and tournament management experience with his diverse experience at Kokopelli Golf Club, Grayhawk, Amarillo Country Club, The Grand Golf Club, Twin Oaks and La Costa. He has been at Aviara since 2010 and serves as 1st Assistant Golf Professional/Tournament Coordinator.
Donovan has had one hole-in-one in his career and boasts an albatross on Aviara’s hole #8, a beautiful par 5, hitting a driver and holing out a 6 iron from 183 yards. His favorite aspect about the game is the connections you make with people while on the course.
