A member of the PGA of America since 1998 and a Chicago area native, Gabe Exiner spent five years as an assistant golf pro at Crystal Tree from 1998-2002 and became the head golf professional in 2007.  Two years as an assistant at Edgewood Valley Country Club and two years as the head pro at Eaglebrook Country Club from 2003-2006 were spent before coming back “home” to Crystal Tree.  He has served on several committees in the Illinois PGA over the years, and won the PGA Merchandiser of the Year in 2015.  Gabe is passionate about teaching and growing the game of golf, and most enjoys striving to make the golf operation the best in the area to benefit the membership and their friends and families.


Matt is in his 10th season in the golf business after moving to Illinois from the Upper Peninsula in Michigan where he grew up.  He has been a proud representative of Titleist as the brand ambassador here at Crystal Tree for the last 4 years.  Matt's real passion is teaching and club fitting.  He believes that the job of the instructor is to provide the student with enough knowledge to know what they are doing and why they are doing it, allowing them to become their own coach.


Tate Rogers got his start in the golf business as a caddie in Minnesota in 2002 where he grew up.  In 2006, he moved to Illinois where he met his wife, MaryBeth.  They now have a son named Sebastian "Bash".  In 2014, he joined the golf professional staff at Crystal Tree CC.  Tate has been teaching the game of golf since 2007 and enjoys teaching players of all skill levels.  He really prides himself on the fact that he is always learning and continuously striving to become a better instructor.
