Teaching Professional

Suzanne Veylupek, LPGA Teaching Professional

            My “golf life” started many years ago in Casper, Wyoming where I was blessed to have my dad as my mentor and all time hero. He polished the profession as Head Professianal at Casper Country Club for over 25 yrs.– he taught me not only how to hit a ball and play the game, he gave me a special purpose I will always cherish. Loving and playing all sports, I believe golf is the smartest, hardest, yet most intriguing game ever to accomplish at a high level. To learn it can be a simpler task and one that can last a lifetime. Each person has an opportunity to enjoy the sport at whatever level or age-there are few limitations.

            After attending Univ. of Wyo. and ASU, I moved to Colorado where I became focused on teaching & becoming fully involved in the golf business. I became a class A member of the LPGA Professionals and pursued my career in the Littleton area for over 23 yrs., adding 12 awesome years at a golf resort in northern NM. I have earned Life Member status now and am truly proud of that accomplishment.

            Long story short, I have made my way back to Wyoming and hope to inspire or ignite some interest in golf to the community here. Although my ability to play has faded, my strength still lies in teaching and sharing “words of wisdom.” I feel very priveleged to have the opportunity, and I also suggest anyone come by Gillette Golf Club to meet your new Head Pro, Larry Webb. I know first hand what a champion he was and what a fine teacher he still is. His Coloradao Golf Hall of Fame status and reputation is well known, and I am proud to say I am his #1 fan.
