Brian Cassidy Biography
Born and raised in Southern California, I grew up in Glendale then attended the University of Southern California (USC) class of 2001. I then spent close to 17 years living in Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach. Most of my career was spent in the Employee Benefits industry. I worked both on broker side as well as wholesale side. My wife (Andy) and I gave birth to Harrison (Harry) in September 2012. Harry was born a high-risk premature baby at 1 lb. 14 oz. It was then that my wife and I decided once Harry was healthy enough, we would leave Southern California and make a life for him somewhere else. It was then we choose to move to Reno as it was a small city with an abundance of outdoor activities for Harry. We moved to Reno in 2014 where we opened a business called, Junk King.
We joined Somersett in the midst of the pandemic as I was looking for a club where my son could get involved in the junior golf program. I had heard from numerous people in town that Somersett was the best for junior golf. I too had grown up being part of my dad’s club in Southern California playing on the golf team as well as spending summer days at the club. Some of my best memories were being part of that club and interacting with the members. Some of which took me under their wing and taught me some of my cherished life lessons as well as golf. It was the skills I learned there that assisted me with being part of my high school (St. Francis) golf team. Besides the junior golf, I wanted to be part of a club for myself like my dad had when I was younger. I watched my dad have some of his best memories playing with his buddies each weekend. Once I was old enough, I got to play with that group and cherished the memories with them. I wanted to be part of a club that had a challenging but manageable course and had down to earth members. We found all of those at Somersett.
Since being a member at Somersett, we have grown to love the family atmosphere there and have gotten to know so many members some of which have become our friends.
