His Game-Of-A-Lifetime approach brought golf to over 40,000 kids in two years. Bob has an extensive teaching and administrative background in golf. He worked for, and with, such famed instructors as Carl Lohren, Jim Flick, Laird Small and Hugh Royer Jr. He developed the Nicklaus/Flick Golf schools for Family Golf Centers and the Golf Digest Instructional Programs.

Bob strongly stresses golf's fundamentals and believes in the power of work and setting realistic goals for individual games. Bob is an accomplished player and enjoyed great success in junior golf when playing on the Division II Columbus College NCAA Championship Golf Team.

Jeff Carswell, PGA - Head Golf Professional

Jeff grew up as a multi-sport athlete but ran into frequent shoulder issues which lead him to limit his activities and allowed him to focus on his true passion of golf. He was an accomplished junior golfer playing golf at Ocean County College where he and his team were Regional Champions in 2008. Later that year, Jeff qualified for the Division III National Championship.

After graduating from Ocean County College, he turned professional, which made him ineligible to play golf at Kean University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management in 2011. During that time, he stayed very busy teaching, club fitting, and assisted in running the golf operations at Metedeconk National Golf Club and Eagle Ridge Golf Club.

Jeff has developed his teaching method over his 12 years in the golf business. He believes in the fundamentals and staying connected using body movement. Jeff was elected for PGA membership in April 2016.
