About Abby

As a PGA Certified Instructor and LPGA Certified Instructor, Abby brings 15 years of experience leading the resort’s instructional programs for both women and juniors, as well as Kiawah’s award winning golf schools. Abby has been highlighted in several national publications for her golf prowess, including Golf Digest and Southern Living. She was selected for the inaugural list of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers, and nominated for the Junior Golf Leader award for the Carolinas PGA. Her credentials and high standing in the instruction community earned her a spot among the top 40 instructors under the age of 40 for eight consecutive years. Abby began her love for golf at the age of 12, leading to her role as Captain of the women’s golf team at the University of South Carolina. Abby and her husband, Greg, have two sons, Brent and Cole, as well as a golden retriever, Merritt.

The core of my teaching philosophy is to grow the game of golf through everyone I work with. It is imperative to teach the game in each student’s individual learning style. Continuous growth of my personal methodology is always at the forefront. We as PGA/LPGA Professionals must never forget we are role models on and off the lesson tee.

So many instructors insist on tearing up everything you are currently doing and starting over. Abby has taken our games and our styles and improved them, without having to go back to ground zero to learn “her way”.
