About Reece

Reece Bartelt is a PGA Professional who specializes in growing the game of golf by helping golfers play their best. Whether he’s teaching a beginner, 15 handicap, or a touring professional, he has consistently proven that he excels in helping his students have more fun and shoot better scores. Reece finds his success as a golf instructor through his ability to listen and communicate to his students, pinpointing and correcting root issues in the golf swing, and customizing every lesson to each student’s unique physical and mental capabilities.

Reece completed his Business/Professional Golf Management degree from Ferris State University in 2013. During the course of his collegiate and professional career, he has had the opportunity to work at some of the country’s best golf facilities, including Montreux Golf and Country Club, The Palms Golf Club, and Nantucket Golf Club. Over the years he was fortunate to be able to learn from some of the world’s best instructors. Years of shadowing the best instructors combined with expertise with some of golf’s best technology and resources like Trackman, Boditrak, K Vest, SAM Putt Lab, and TPI, have helped mold him into the instructor he is today.

Reece was born and raised in Northwest Wisconsin, and is an avid Wisconsin sports fan. Outside of teaching and playing golf, he enjoys following the NFL, NBA, and PGA Tour.
