Greg’s passion for golf started in Santa Rosa at the age of seven when he would loop the nine holes at Wikiup Golf Club from morning until night while his older brothers worked his parent’s swim and tennis club next door. As his love for the game continued to grow, he joined the junior membership at Santa Rosa G&CC at the age of twelve.
