Greg Shelnutt

Golf Instructor

At the age of 17, Greg was already working at a local course doing maintenance, carts, helping in the golf shop and learning the golf business. Working in the pro shop gave Greg the opportunity to interact with members and develop relationships that continue to this day. There is where Greg fell in love with the game and his passion has only grown stronger through his career.

Desiring to become golf professional, Greg enrolled in the Golf Academy of the Carolinas. While there Greg developed a particular focus on methods of teaching and the three phases of learning. He came to understand that everyone was unique and learned the game in different ways. With this new-found awareness, Greg knew he wanted to make Golf and coaching part of his career. He has been featured in Voyage Atlanta magazine for his coaching.

Once graduated from the Golf Academy, Greg’s journey took him to Callaway Gardens. There Greg was able to test what he had learned, keep what produced the best results, develop and refine his way of communication and teaching style. It was at Callaway where Greg developed a keen understanding of how to diagnose and correct ball flight to a player’s preference.

After Callaway Greg moved on to Highland Country Club in Lagrange, Georgia.  There he worked as an Assistant Golf Professional while entering the PGA golf management program which provides world-class training based on “The People, The Business, and The Game”.

Today, Greg is a professional instructor based at Northcrest Driving Range in Atlanta, Georgia.
