When we say we have a Gold Pro on staff, we mean it.
Breanne Hall, Head Golf Professional at Grove Park Inn, received her PGA Certification on April 4, 2012 – making her one of only 805 women among the 23,026 members of the PGA.
Of the honor, she says, “By earning my PGA Certification, I hope to be an inspiration to other females in the golf industry. Women currently represent 3.5 percent of the PGA Class A Members in the United States. I would encourage all professionals in the business to complete their certification and continue to develop their skills and knowledge. I believe the keys to success are growing and developing women and junior programs. If we, as golf professionals, can teach them solid fundamentals and etiquette, then the game we love will continue to prosper. The most important point I stress to my students, is that it is not always about their score, it is about having fun.”
A Michigan native, Breanne became the first amateur to win the Women’s Michigan Open Golf Tournament in 2003. She played golf at the University of Toledo and was All-Mid American Conference Golf Second Team, 2001–2004; Mid-American Conference Honor Roll, 2001-2004; University of Toledo President’s List, 2001–2004.
Before joining Grove Park Inn in 2007 as Assistant Golf Pro, Breanne served as Assistant Golf Pro at Manasquan River Country Club in Brielle, New Jersey, and Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida. Breanne was promoted to the Head Golf Professional at Grove Park Inn in May of 2008.
