Sherman, a graduate of Bentley University, will take over the reins from Pat Fannon, who recently started in his new role as Golf Professional at The Captains Golf Course in Brewster.

He will be the primary contact person for Mass Golf Member Days, which are single-day events held at some of the most exclusive golf courses across the Bay State. The first Member Day of the season takes place Monday, May 3 at The Club at New Seabury.

He’ll also oversee the Youth On Course, a program through Mass Golf that provides youth ages 6-18 with access to affordable rounds of golf courses across Massachusetts and the rest of the country. According to Sherman, Youth On Course has already seen a 15-20% increase in Youth on Course membership sign-ups during April.

“I love the team here, and it’s great to be back,” Sherman said. “It’s following my real passion which is working in golf. I loved every second of my internship, and so far, I’m having a great time here.”

During his time as a Boatwright Intern, Sherman attended all Member Days on the schedule. He also oversaw statewide golf tournaments, the MIAA junior golf handicap initiative, and Mass Golf focus groups.

“I think what we do is so essential to the growth of the game and making it accessible and something that is welcoming to all people,” Sherman said.

A Rochester native, Sherman learned the game from his father and still frequents Rochester Golf Club, an 18-hole public course in his hometown. While attending Old Rochester Regional High School, he was a caddy at The Kittansett Club. He then served on the Course Maintenance staff at The Bay Club at Mattapoisett, where his high school team played its home matches during his final two seasons.

His work at local clubs helped him earn a Ouimet Scholarship, which helped him attend Bentley University.

Outside of golf, Sherman enjoys skiing, playing multiple sports, and is a huge fan of all Boston sports teams. He’s also had previous travels to both England and Australia.
