About Raymond

My name is Raymond Tugend and have been a PGA Member in good standing since 2001. Throughout my career I have had the pleasure of working in many highly recognizable facilities in many roles. I have grown my career from the bottom up beginning as a driving range attendant and working my way up to the General Manager position. Throughout this timeframe I have conducted thousands of personal lessons, group lessons and junior golf camps. My true passion and enjoyment is working with beginners, regardless of age. I have also been an active participant in various levels of competitive golf from junior golf, high school, college and on the professional level. My teaching philosophy is built specific for each individual student. We will spend a fair amount of time creating a plan based on the AMD, American Development Model, to ensure you enjoy the game, have fun, and improve along the way.
