The primary role of a PGA Professional is to promote the game of golf. The journey of making golf a career began more than thirty years ago for our head professional, Jeff McGill. Jeff arrived on the scene at Bowling Green Country Club in the spring of 1990. During that time he has seen the course completely rebuilt. Improvements to the the facility have allowed the club to attract a number of state and national events. The outstanding practice facility built during his tenure is another reason the club is in such demand.
Jeff was attracted to the golf business primarily because of outstanding playing skills. Over the years our head professional has evolved from player to teacher. The Kentucky PGA, Golf Digest, and Golf Magazine have on numerous occasions selected our professional as the finest teacher in the state. A contemporary approach to instruction that includes video, launch monitors and scores of teaching aids makes the teaching tee a popular place for students. His philosophy is essentially to make the game more fun regardless of the level of the player.
Custom fitting golf equipment is another passion for our host professional. Many lines of equipment are available for fitting purposes, making Bowling Green Country Club a leading fitting center in the area.
Almost every day a PGA professional is involved in managing tournaments, teaching, club fitting, merchandising, interpreting rules, repairing clubs, directing junior golf, managing professional shop service, handicapping and managing the cart fleet. Bowling Green Country Club is proud to have an individual who is able to touch on all the different areas of the golf business in such a responsible manner.
