“I am thrilled to join the extraordinary Bright’s Creek community,” said Stewart. “The beautiful scenery and mild climate here make playing the Bright’s Creek golf course an absolute delight, and I can’t think of a more rewarding way to spend my days than to help others develop their game.”

This summer, Stewart will also lead the Bright’s Creek Summer Golf Camp for kids and juniors, open to ages 5-18. Players can learn the basics or master their game with range and course instruction from a PGA professional. The camp is limited to 15 participants per session to ensure that each golfer receives ample attention from Bright’s Creek’s expert golf professionals.
