Come on by and say Hello to Doug Ruttle, our NEW PGA Professional!

Posted On: Dec 28, 2016 2:37 PM
We would like to introduce you to your new PGA Head Professional, Doug Ruttle!

Doug Ruttle has been involved in the game of golf since he was a very young man. He got his start in the game playing and taking instruction from his father while growing up in South Dakota and Central New York State.
 
 "I would have to say that most of my fondest memories of the game have to do with the times that I spent with my father on the golf course. Although he was a highly skilled golfer, he never pushed too hard, or took the game to seriously. These simple lessons, I would have to say in retrospect, have served me well both on and off of the golf course. It was always about having a good time together, and working toward personal game improvement, but as a team. Early on, I also learned how to ask for help when needed."
 
"When teaching, I rely on a low-impact style with the believe that we all, from time to time, do things very well and experience personal brilliance on the golf course. And even though that may be the case, we also experience tendencies that dog us when we are under pressure on the course or range. My style is a blend of "cause-effect" and "supervised practice. My goal is to identify and explain in simple language a plan of action for self-improvement."
 
Doug has worked in the golf industry in New England since the late 1980's. He received his PGA Membership as a Class "A" Professional while working at the Balsams Grand Hotel in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, where he was both Head Golf Professional and Director of Golf. Doug has also spent extended periods at the Mount Washington Hotel, as Director of Golf, and at nearby Jay Peak Resort, as Head Golf Professional.
 
"When dealing with my members, guests and friends, I believe in an honest, straight forward  exchange of thoughts and ideas. I look forward to meeting new people, and very much enjoy playing with different people during my rounds. That's what golf is all about! I look forward to seeing you all at Alburg Golf Links!"
