Jack Daray was one of many fine teaching professionals at the turn of the 20th century. In 1901, Daray served as professional at Highland Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and then at Olympia Fields Country Club near Chicago. In the winter, he served as head teaching professional at Biloxi Golf Club along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Among Daray’s students were U.S. President Woodrow Wilson and baseball legend Ty Cobb.

In the 1920’s, Daray was one of the few golf professionals who did golf design work on the side. He stayed active in the 1930’s and resumed his work after World War II. Even after Daray’s ill health forced him to move to the warmer climate of Southern California, he still was involved with golf course design until his death.

Daray was one of the 14 founding members of ASGCA in 1947. He served as an ASGCA member for 11 years until his death in 1958.
