TEACHING
 

“Teaching the golf swing is simple, teach to the person.”

Ricky finds the most success in developing a relationship with each person and learning about his or her goals. He makes sure their goals are achievable within a time frame that is both attainable and suitable with their practice and playing availability. From there they together develop a detailed plan in order to attain the students desired objective.

“The future is in our Junior Golf Program, make it memorable.”

The Junior Golf Program is one of the most important programs that are run by any country club. The goal of the Junior Golf Program is to promote the game of golf while teaching etiquette and sportsmanship in a fun and welcoming learning atmosphere.

GOLF OPERATIONS
 

“Make every day for every member and guest a special one.”

In the golf operation there are a lot of moving parts and how they are managed is crucial to its success. Making every day special for every member and guest a special one is a belief that Ricky feels can be obtained by three rules, a three hand shake rule, service with a smile and “do not just listen to the person, hear the person.”
