Chaparral welcomed Erin back to our golf staff in 2010. She has the distinction of being the first lady professional to graduate from the Golf Management Program at the College of the Desert.

Her 20 year career focus has been centered on golf instruction. She first began teaching at the College of the Desert with an Elderhostel program, and was part of the golf and wellness program with Secure Horizons. Having gained a thorough understanding of seniors and fitness, she then taught at The Golf Center in Palm Desert, creating weekly ladies programs, private lessons, and clinics.

Erin also helped to develop and implement a mobile junior golf program within the public and private schools across the valley. Prior to returning to Chaparral she joined in a partnership at the College Golf Center; she managed the pro shop and driving range as well as conducting her daily clinics and lessons.

Erin puts her heart and soul into her position as 1st assistant golf professional and pro shop buyer because of the exceptionally friendly and caring membership!
