Chris Crenshaw, Certified PGA
Head Golf Professional

Chris grew up in a golfing family where a passion for the game was instilled early on. When it was time to decide what career path to pursue, he couldn’t imagine life without being around the game he loved.

Chris is a big believer that not everyone thinks and communicates the same way and it is important to adapt to a student’s learning style and physical capabilities. He uses a variety of methods from video analysis, launch monitors, teaching aids, and drills to help a student improve. Chris loves helping people improve and enjoy the game more. Chris previously worked at Seawane Country Club in New York and Barton Creek Country Club in Austin, TX and is a University of Texas Alum. Chris is currently a Taylor Made staff member.
