Head PGA Golf Professional at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club, Lincoln, NE

Maureen is a 2009 graduate of the PGA Golf Management Program. While in the program, Maureen completed internships at Arborlinks GC, Oak Hills CC, Carnoustie Golf Links (Scotland), Pinehurst Golf Resort and Wilderness Ridge Golf Club. After graduating she served as an Assistant PGA Golf Professional at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club and Kansas City Country Club.

This is what Maureen had to say about how the program prepared her for her success in the golf industry:

"I truly believe it was a combination of the classes I took at UNL, but mainly my internship experience. Asking questions, being passionate about the business and always wanting to learn on the internships is what excelled my career."

We are extremely proud of all of our alumi and the impact that they have on their peers and this industry!
