Old Pro Golf is a family-owned and operated business founded in 1965 by Herbert J. and Aileen "Deany" Schoellkopf. Prior to owning Old Pro Golf, they were designing, building and operating miniature golf courses, driving ranges, and other amusement facilities up and down the East Coast. Herb became hooked on the game of golf and saw its potential as a business while helping a fellow coach at Guilford College build a miniature golf course to raise funds to buy school uniforms. Since then he has designed and built well over 150 miniature golf courses during his 50+ year career. John Margolies, author and photographer of the book Miniature Golf, credits Herb with being one of the originators of the "Philadelphia School of Miniature Golf design."
Over the years Old Pro has grown through hard work, "imagineering," and employee dedication and cooperation. As we continue to grow and create, Old Pro Golf is as full of potential as it was the day Herb built his first miniature golf course out of dirt and 1Ã—4 lumber.
