For many, the start of warm summer weather signals the beginning of golf season. This season is particularly exciting for The Country Club at Woodloch Springs, a championship golf course located in the Pocono Mountains and part of the all-inclusive family resort, Woodloch Pines. Charley Winn, a 20-year member of the PGA of America, will serve as the Director of Instruction. Mr. Winn prides himself on offering exciting instructional teachings from which even the most unexperienced golfer can benefit.

“I am very happy to be here at The Country Club at Woodloch Springs,” Mr.Winn said. “Having worked at a number of courses during my 20-year professional career, I am eager to offer instruction and share my excitement for the game at such a beautiful property.”

Mr. Winn’s main goal is to offer fun and flexible programs that will improve the skills of players of all ages and abilities. Mr. Winn previously worked as lead instructor at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida, and at Sonnenalp Resort in Vail, Colorado.

Some of the instructional offerings that will be available include:

In addition to learning the basics, golfers will be guided onto the course to put their skills into action in a casual friendly setting. No equipment needed.
