Please help us welcome Taylor Griffith, PGA to the Carthage Golf Community. Taylor will be our dedicated PGA Teaching Professional beginning March 2019. Taylor will offer a variety of instruction packages, clinics and seminars at Carthage Golf Course. Taylor brings a wealth of teaching and playing knowledge to our facility. Over the next several weeks we will be introducing Taylor’s instruction packages and all of the services he will offer as part of Griff’s Golf Academy. We are very excited to have Taylor on our team at Carthage Golf Course!

Taylor Griffith was born and raised in Carthage, MO. As a child, Taylor spent all of his time at the golf course, practicing, playing, and learning from anyone that would entertain his questions. As Taylor got older, he began entering junior tournaments and quickly realized that his love for the game extended beyond casual weekend rounds. As a sophomore in high school, Taylor qualified for the varsity golf team, and by his senior year their team won the conference and district tournaments and took 2nd at the state championship. Following high school Taylor signed to play golf at Southern Nazarene University, qualifying for the NAIA national championship in 2008, and then transferred to Missouri Southern State University for his final two years of college eligibility.

Following college, Taylor worked at Twin Hills Golf & Country Club in Joplin, MO, as the assistant golf professional for six years. There he began giving golf lessons and learned under the supervision of PGA Professional Doug Adams. Throughout his career, Taylor also received golf lessons and learned about golf instruction from Lowell Catron, high school golf coach, Mark Peterson, PGA, Rick Grayson, PGA, and Rick Neal, PGA. In 2016, after four years of hard work, Taylor was elected to the PGA of America as a Class A PGA member. Later that year Taylor accomplished a life-long dream and qualified for the 2017 PGA Professional Championship.

For the last two years, Taylor has been traveling the country and playing full-time professional golf. In addition to his playing career, Taylor is excited to partner with Carthage Golf Course as their new teaching professional. Griff’s Golf Academy will offer personalized golf instruction in a modern and unique way. The experience that Taylor has gained as a successful high school and college athlete, as well as a full-time playing professional, will be invaluable to students of all playing levels.

Please help me congratulate Jordan Burks! Jordan is the 2018 CMGA Player of the Year. Jordan earned victories in the 2018 CMGA Stroke Play and 2018 CMGA Match Play Championships. He took two very strong fields in both events. Great playing Jordan. A good picture of Jordan with his dad.

Please help me congratulate Jim Gourley! Jim is the 2018 CMGA Senior Player of the year. Jim’s victory at the 2018 CMGA Net Match Play Championship helped him earn the top honor for seniors in the CMGA. Jim is always smiling…just like the picture.

Our CMGA Season has come to a close for 2018. We cant wait to get rolling in 2019!

Today is the finals of the 2018 CMGA Match Play Championship. We have Jordan Burks playing Tug baker in the finals we are calling The Match ll. Good luck gentlemen! I just cant figure out who is Tiger and who is Phil. What do you think?

It was a great day today. We were packed solid from 8:30 to 1:30 with tee times! Thank you to all that “joined” us at Carthage Golf Course today. We hope for a few more of these fantastic days as winter comes on.

It is too early for a golf snow day! These snow days give golf industry professionals an opportunity to catch up on some normal business practices that typically can get pushed to the side during the go-go go of the golf season. Business planning for the 2019 season, research of various marketing opportunities, review of successful and not so successful 2018 activities…on and on and on. This all takes place primarily in our “off-season”. It is great to get that started but it is just too soon for snow. It does also allows me to bring my Chocolate Lab, Cleo, to the course. She is queen of the course on these days!

We went all over the course. Just a few pictures from today. I will have a lot more if we have more snow days. Cleo would like snow until March. That is where Cleo and I disagree.

I know where we are going …hurry up!

This is a great day to have the Tri-State Area Contractors Association at Carthage Golf Course for their Fall event. A fun golf day will be had by all!
