Scott Gerhart

Congrats to Scott Gerhart on his recent retirement to Florida.  Scott's passion and knowledge of golf will be missed by his students and staff at the Manor.  While we we will miss Scott's valuable role as an instruction professional, Manor is committed to continuing its tradition of being the largest instructional golf course in the County.  We are fortunate to have added Dr. Sharon Barley to our teaching staff and Sharon is immediately available for lessons.  In addition, we look forward to bringing on additional instruction staff in the near future to only provide additional options for private lessons, but to support our many instructional programs and clinics-First Tee, Jr League, Junior Golf Camps, Get Golf Ready, Women2Women clinics, etc.

She has been a United Methodist and UCC Pastor serving seven different churches as an Intentional Interim. Her multi-sport interests Ans compassion to help others realize their dreams narrowed to one single sport and passion: all things Golf.Sharon played golf in high school, then picked up the game again mid-career. She decided to study the mental game of golf and performance improvement, given her training in human motivation and assessments, knowing how much the mind impacts the outcomes of any sport. Thinking she could help others improve their game, she went on to train as a Professional Golf Teacher with the United States Golf Teaching Federation, earning a Level III Coaching/Teaching Certification.Recently, she connected with the Graves Golf Academy and studied the Moe Norman Single Plane Swing. She was able to combine all her athletic training in mindfulness and biomechanics to performance improvement.

Dr. Barley is thrilled to be a part of the Manor Golf Club as one of their golf teaching professionals. She will be launching new opportunities for group clinics, learning the single or one plane swing, and growing women’s participation in golf.Sharon is married and lives in Adamstown, Pa.
