About Robert

Let's make golf fun, and enjoyable! Bob Gillespie, a member of the PGA of America is a passionate and dedicated instructor who is committed to helping you achieve your goals. Bob grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where he fell in love with the game of golf at a young age. Bob was fortunate to learn the game under the guidance of several PGA Professionals including the legendary Clark Luis, PGA and Mike Dulina. Bob attended Saint Francis University where he graduated with a degree in English Communications. During his time at SFU he played golf, and developed a keen interest in education. After graduating, Bob worked as a college admissions counselor at the Catholic University of America, and then went back to Saint Francis where he served as the Associate Director of Admissions. It was at Saint Francis where Bob knew that golf was his true passion. After meeting his wife, Bob moved to the Pittsburgh Area and began his path to membership in the PGA. Upon earning membership Bob worked at Allegheny Country Club, Shannopin Country Club, South Hills Country Club, and served as the Player Development Coordinator for the Tri-State PGA section. Bob is the 2020 Youth Player Development Award Winner in the TSPGA section and enjoys working with junior players and players of all levels and skills.
