Kelli’s Bio

Beginnings

Growing up in Minnesota, Kelli was first introduced to the game of golf by her father. A high school standout in three sports and a collegiate softball player for the UMD Bulldogs, Kelli received a set of golf clubs for college graduation and pursued the game with a passion. Her first opportunity in the golf business was working for PGA Professional Rob Hary at MN Valley CC in Bloomington, MN.

While there are a number of areas of focus for golf professionals, Kelli quickly knew that her passion was in teaching the game and went straight to the best to learn her trade. Kelli secured a job with the famed Nicklaus-Flick golf schools. For ten years she was mentored by, and personally taught alongside some of golf’s most respected instructors including the late Jim Flick, Martin Hall (of the Golf Channel), Chuck Cook, and Bob Toski.
