Meet The Management

Billy Allen

General Manager/Golf Professional

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Billy’s golf career began at Rolling Hills in 1994 where he began working in the pro shop and on the maintenance staff.  As an accomplished player, during this time Billy also began giving instruction to members who would ask for golf tips.  In 1998, Billy moved on to play collegiate golf for Hinds Community College for two years before transferring to the University of Southern Mississippi.

After working various jobs within the golf business through college, Billy took the position of Golf Professional/Superintendent at Rolling Hills in 2006.  In 2009, he was offered the position of Assistant Golf Professional/Guest Services Supervisor at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club.  During his time at Dancing Rabbit, Billy expanded his duties to include the majority of the golf instruction and VIP coordination.

Billy has been with Deerfield Golf Club since May of 2014 since its reorganization.  He began as the Assistant Golf Professional and has since worked his way through the ranks to become the General Manager.  His goal for Deerfield Golf Club is to help create an atmosphere for all employees, members, and guests to enjoy while also increasing the value of the business for the owners of the club.  Billy is happy to make himself available at any time for any assistance needed whether it be for instruction, inquiries, or suggestions.
