Golf Lessons by:


After 21 years as a golf professional and almost 30 years in the golf business, I left to start my own marketing business (Shared Media) in March of 2021.

It was a terrific opportunity to take over as the Teaching Professional at The Emerald Golf Course in St. Johns, Michigan and I can't wait to help you with your golf game.

It all started for me at Twin Oaks Golf Course, just down the street.  My first job was on the maintenance crew.  I'm excited to be back in St. Johns helping people with the game I love.
