Director of Golf
A native of Tecumseh, MI. Chris has always had a passion for golf and for teaching. Chris graduated with a B.S. Degree in Marketing/Professional Golf Management from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan where he had the privilege of working with renowned teachers Bob Toski, Gary Wiren and Bill Strausbaugh. It was with Bill Strausbaugh where Chris was taught a very valuable teaching lesson. The teacher/student relationship is short lived, the coach/student relationship is forever. In this philosophy, the teacher can teach the student in a relatively short period of time, however, the student will always need to be coached over a longer period of time in order to stay on the proper path of development and improvement.
Chris has an excellent ability to communicate and a very good comprehension of the golf swing. In his 20+ years as a PGA Member, Chris has given thousands of lessons to golfers of all abilities, including beginners, ladies, juniors, club champions and mini tour players that eventually played on the PGA tour. His keen eye and understanding of proper fundamentals allows him to quickly pinpoint the student's challenges and immediately help them understand why certain things happen in the golf swing. Chris has the ability of making an extremely complex game easy to understand.
On a personal note, Chris resides in Jupiter with his wife, Monica and their two children, Kyle and Samantha.
