About Joseph

I grew up in Meade County and began golfing at the age of 14. Pursuing a career in golf I spent time at Shawnee Golf Course, Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, and Gull Lake View Stonehedge in Michigan during my internships. After college I spent time at Shawnee Golf Course, Polo Fields Golf and Country Club, as well as Wildwood Country Club prior to becoming the First Tee - Louisville Program Director. Being involved with teaching, fitting, and heavily with youth programs throughout my career I enjoy nothing more than helping individuals grow as humans and golfers. First Tee - Louisville's programming growth has continued every year I have been part of the team other than the slight hit due to COVID-19 in which we were still able to serve 515 youth mid Pandemic. I look forward to getting to know you and help you improve!
