With an outstanding background as a professional teacher and over 15 years of teaching experience, Justin Hearley brings both his passion and his expertise to the course, helping you believe & achieve!


As the Head Golf Professional at Burden Lake Country Club, I have the ability to teach both members and non-members 12 months a year on 3 state of the art indoor simulators during the winter and use of the driving range grass tee or 18 hole championship golf course during the golf season. The indoor simulators have brand new software updated this fall and have golf courses including Augusta National, Torrey Pines and Coeur D’Alene Country Club to name a few! My professional experience and unique approach will provide the traction necessary for golfers of all abilities to hit the ground running. I personally work with each student to help them achieve their individual athletic goals. I push but I also motivate. Early on, I identify what each client is capable of with my goal being to help them reach, then exceed, that potential.

On top of my responsibilities at the course, my passion for golf bleeds into my tournament play. Since turning professional in 2012 I have won 30 tournaments including most recently 7 times during the 2022 season, culminating the year by winning the 2022 NENY PGA PLAYER OF THE YEAR.  When I’m not at the golf course working or teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife Maria and I have been together since 2007 and have two beautiful children, Caiden (3) and Sophia (8 months.) We enjoy our family walks and taking trips that will build memories for a lifetime. Caiden loves to spend time with dad at the golf course!
