Prairie Village’s Homestead Country Club hires new head tennis pro

Brandon Ambroske

One of the area’s largest tennis communities has hired a new head pro.

Homestead Country Club announced this week that it had hired Brandon Ambroske to lead its tennis instruction program. Ambroske played collegiately at William Jewel, where he graduated with a business degree in 2010. After college, he served as an instructor at Clayview Country Club in north Kanas City, Mo., and as the head pro at the Plaza Tennis Center.

Ambroske has been playing the sport since he was a young child.

“My father started teaching me how to play tennis when I was 5 years old,” he said in an announcement of his hiring. “I still remember going to the neighborhood courts to play every summer. This sport has always been more than just exercise for me. Tennis has helped teach me discipline, sportsmanship, mental strength, competitiveness, and how to have fun.”
