I have a passion for the game of golf and enjoy sharing that passion with others by helping them become better players. I am a competitive player myself, earning Connecticut PGA Player of The Year in 2018, 2020, and 2021. I use my competitive experience to help my students achieve their own personal goals.

The history of The Orchards began in 1922 when Joseph Skinner commissioned Scotsman Donald J. Ross to design the course. The Orchards Golf Club is preserved in time – a testament to the brilliance of Donald J. Ross. The Orchards is rated one of the top ten college courses in the country. CBIGG Golf Management Company acquired the management of the Orchards to oversee all operations. Discover the spirit of a great tradition, the essence of golf as it was meant to be played. Members enjoy practice facilities including a full driving range, vast putting green, and a chipping green with a traditional Donald Ross bunker. Our clubhouse is a comfortable setting where members gather to socialize and enjoy the camaraderie of membership. The clubhouse includes a golf shop, grill room, dining room, outside patio overlooking the course, and locker rooms. We invite you to experience this great atmosphere as we develop the club into one of the finest private golf clubs in New EnglandLocation
