About Quinlan Polin

Quin had his first encounter with golf as a four-year-old when his English father and Irish grandfather took him to the Enniscrone Golf Club in County Sligo, Ireland. He recalls having fun “hitting the balls along the beach.”

But it would be five years later before he picked up a golf club again and realized he loved the game. Fortunately, too, he found he was rather good at it!

“Q” has played at the top junior level in Soccer, Ice Hockey, and Baseball. But Golf has always been his passion.  One day he will be playing in the PGA Tour.
