Matt's Philosophy: “The first time I met CGC owner Susan Roll she asked what I like about golf and the golf business. I answered, ‘I enjoy helping people!’ Golf is a difficult game as it is. If my knowledge can make the game easier, it truly makes me happy. I believe all of my past education and working experience can improve our guests’ golf game.”
