Favorite hole on The Point and why: #13 – my first impression was a dislike of this golf hole. After many rounds played the necessity to pin point a very good accurate tee shot as close to the slope as possible in order to have the least yardage in as possible. The approach demands a solidly struck mid-long iron or even hybrid pending your tee shot… Accuracy is a must depending on pin placement and making a putt from anywhere on the green is difficult. Walk away with par and your never unhappy.
Favorite hole on The Ridge and why: #2 – a wide open often down wind tee shot helps you usually get quite close to the green. If you execute the tee shot properly its a short chip/pitch onto the green and hopefully a make able early round birdie to get your score going.
Favorite lunch item at The View: A caeser……. Don’t know the menu lol. How about a steak sandwich.
Volunteerism & Special Interests:
I have hosted an annual charity golf tournament “Windy Valley Golf Day” since I was in my early 20’s. In its history, this tournament has raised over $25,000 dollars to help underprivileged kids in the local community. It is something I hold very close to me and something I’m extremely proud of.
My special interests include travel, cooking, learning, reading, people, and basically any and all sport/activity. As long as I am outside and pushing myself in an area such as surfing, rock climbing, biking etc…. I’m one happy Golf Pro!

Favorite hole on The Point and why: #3. The view takes your breath away. You must be in play from this elevated tee. Play smart on this hole and be sure to leave yourself below the hole on your approach shot.
Favorite hole on The Ridge and why: #13. My first hole in one! The mountain back drop gives you a sense of awesomeness for where you are. The hole might seem easy but if you walk away with par you have done well. Aim left and your ball will funnel to the hole.
Favorite lunch item at The View: Clubhouse sandwich with yam fries!
