St. George Golf Club Head Golf Pro

My name is James Hood. I am a member of the PGA of America, and I am the Head Golf Professional at St. George Golf Club. I got started in the golf business just out of high school while in my first year in college. After college it was a pretty easy decision for golf to be a career choice for me. I truly love the game of golf and being involved with golf daily has been a huge joy for me.

My family and I came to St. George in 1995, and have loved living here ever since. We have a lot of great friends. Some have lived her for many years; others have moved here recently and have joined the fun. The summers are hot, and the winters are good (By that I mean the snow is just far enough away from town that you can enjoy it, and nice that you donít have to shovel it). The St. George area has changed a lot since we moved here, and it is a great place for me and my family.

One of my favorite things about St. George Golf Club is the 16th Hole. Hole # 16 is one of the signature holes. It is a par 3 that has water, sand, and a small chipping area by the green. Hitting the green here is not easy, and par is a good score.
