Max Mesing

Golf ∙ Beaver Falls

 

 

 

 

Max Mesing is the consummate golf professional: he even lived on a golf course! Max’s lifelong love affair with the links began almost 50 years ago when he was growing up in Moon Township. He landed his first job at age 7 as a ball retriever at the driving range at Scally’s Golf Center, and from that point on Max was hooked. After a four year stint in the Navy (1967-1971), Max decided to pursue golf as his life’s work: he became a club pro at Swallow Golf and Country Club in DeBary, Florida, and after competing in various mini-tours decided to settle down in Western Pennsylvania. In the early 1980s, he bought a rundown golf course on the banks of the Beaver River on the outskirts of Beaver Falls and renamed it Fox Run, and in the late 1990s he bought another course, Stonecrest, in New Beaver, Lawrence County. Max won several tournaments as a player on the local pro circuit, including the West Penn Open (1989) and the Tri State Section PGA Senior Championship (1999). He also qualified for and played in the 1999 US Senior Open. Max was named the Tri State Golf Professional of the Year in 1992.
