A Stroke of Good Fortune

It is with excitement and pleasure I announce I’m now part of the Ponte Vedra golf community. Beginning February 1st, I became an Assistant Golf Professional and Director of Junior Golf Development for the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.


It was a difficult decision to leave Windsor Parke Golf Club and all the wonderful people I came to know over the past six years. I take with me very special memories and will be forever grateful for the friendships I made there throughout my career.

I’m excited to begin this new adventure and be part of such a rich golf history. A Florida landmark since 1928, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club has an atmosphere of excellence in the amenities and programs offered. I’m honored to be part of that heritage and look forward to growing the game of golf!

First Tee Clinic Excitement

First Tee of North Florida had an exciting beginning to 2018, with women’s golf legend, Annika Sorenstam! The American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and the ANNIKA Foundation hosted the 10th ANNIKA Invitational USA at World Golf Village in St. Augustine, FL on January 12-15. And, we were there! First Tee of North Florida hosted a junior clinic with more than 60 members at World Golf Village during the tournament. Check out the video!

The ANNIKA Invitational USA is always one of the AJGA’s premier all-girls invitationals. Annika brings her personal touch by interacting with the girls and being involved in the entire event. From the welcome dinner to the congratulations at the end, she provides young women a chance to aspire to be all they can be. I was both excited and honored to meet Annika and share her love of junior golf during the tournament and our clinic
