Basin Harbor announces new PGA Teaching Professional to join golf staff
Posted on April 15, 2014
Basin Harbor Club is pleased to announce the hiring of award winning PGA Golf Professional, Robert Prange, as our new PGA Director of Golf Instruction. Presently Robert is the Director of Golf Instruction at Estero Country Club in Ft. Myers, Florida.
Robert is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and comes from a family of five boys; four of them are PGA Golf Professionals. He is the proud father of two young adult daughters, each of whom achieved tremendous accomplishments during their junior, collegiate and professional golfing careers. As the newest addition to our PGA golf professional staff, we want to briefly share his professional background with you.
Members and guests will benefit from Robert Prange’s extended instructional training. He was mentored by two of the world’s finest golf instructors, both John Jacobs of The John Jacobs’ Practical Golf Schools; and Jim Hardy, 2008 PGA Teacher of the year, and author and founder of The Jim Hardy Plane Truth Golf Professional Certification Program.
What does this mean for your golf experience? Whatever your skill level is today, you and Robert will work as a team to improve your abilities on the range, short game area, putting green, and the golf course. Your enjoyment of the game is significantly heightened when you master just a few of the skill sets Robert will share with you. Golf instruction will be available for all levels of golfers, from those who are new to the sport, up to and including the low handicap seasoned player (men, women and juniors).
