Chipping In

PGA REACH New England is excited to announce a new spotlight piece dedicated to sharing the goodwill and support of local communities by our PGA Professionals. Chipping In will trumpet the story of individual PGA Professionals and their efforts to differentiate their facility and personal PGA Brand within the community.

I’d like to highlight The Ridge Club and our charitable efforts throughout the years. For over 8 years, The Ridge Club has partnered with the Sandwich Food Pantry. We are now passing the torch on to Cape Kids Meals. Our Ridge Club Women’s Golf Association has also done tremendous work on their own to support local initiatives. READ MORE

Steve Sheridan, PGA
Head Golf Professional

I grew up in Wakefield and started my golf experience at the old Colonial Golf Club in Lynnfield. I was introduced to the game of golf by my Dad and his brother Richard who bought lessons for me for my 12th birthday from the legendary Bob Baldassari Sr. After completing high school, I went on to The Golf Academy of the South, where I received an associate degree in Business & Golf Management. Upon graduation, I started my career at Lexington Golf Club, working for Kevin Wilczewski, PGA, for six seasons. I moved onto Kernwood Country Club to work for Frank Dully II for five seasons before I accepted the Head Professional position at Meadow Brook Golf Club in Reading. I have been a PGA Member for twenty-five years, certified in four different areas, and working towards my PGA Master in Player Development.
