Rich Elias, PGA - General Manager

A native of Tucson, Rich didn't pick up the game until the age of 17. Growing up a baseball player, he made the transition to golf very quickly.  

As a well-accomplished player, Rich prides himself on instruction of the short game. Wedges, chipping and putting are his passion. It really brings out a player's creativity and imagination.  

Rich focuses on making practice fun while teaching core fundamentals. He helps his students understand course management and golf strategy to shoot lower scores.

"I believe the short game is the great equilizer," Rich says. "Remember: They don't measure your shots - they count them."
