Golf Instructor Jamie Engelkemier

RYAN SHEFFER – Director of Golf
Ryan Sheffer has played golf his entire life, ranking as one of the top junior players in the world. He went on to play collegiate golf at Notre Dame de Namur University in San Francisco, graduating with high honors with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Ryan became interested in teaching while a student himself, when he was coached by Brad Brewer, the former Director of the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy and Top 100 PGA Instructor. He also studied the mental side of the game under Dr. Joseph Parent, the author of Zen Golf and Zen Putting. In college, Ryan began working with and shadowing two Jim McLean Master Instructors who helped him to further his knowledge as a teacher.

Ryan’s teaching style incorporates a variety of learning techniques, customized for each student. When Ryan isn’t professionally involved in golf, he is committed to studying for his PGA certification and working on his own game. Ryan’s golf mantra is: “Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work.”
