In 2008 Hamilton enrolled at Mississippi State University with an intent to pursue a career in golf course design. When the housing bubble hit later that year and the economy receded, he still pushed forward towards his goal of becoming a golf course architect. Upon graduation in 2011, he moved to Augusta, GA where he completed an internship at Augusta National Golf Club as the CAD Design Intern. The construction industry was very turbulent at this time though so he decided to pursue other career paths.
In 2012, Hamilton moved back to his hometown of Mobile, AL to work for Spring Hill College as the Campus Planner/Special Projects Manager. For the college, Hamilton ran several projects with wide-ranging scope-of-works including golf course renovations, campus dorm building renovations, campus master plans and mapping, NCAA athletic field management including a new sand volleyball court complex, and a disc golf course design and implementation.
In 2021, Hamilton set forth a new life path that focused less on managing projects and more on managing people. His desire to teach the skills and experiences he has obtained over the last 13 years to the associates of BLAM, as well as provide incredible experiences for the firm’s clients, is the main reason he started this company.
