Joe Felder - Head Pro


Enjoying his 29th season at The Griff and recently awarded Metropolitan PGA Professional of the Year, Joe brings his love of the game to The Griff and the lesson tee.

Patrick Massi - Assistant Pro


The new breed of PGA Professional, Patrick brings his playing and teaching experience to golfers of all levels. Patrick has been at The Griff since his days as a junior, and, under Joe's tutelage, has become a fine player and a finer teacher. A true student of the game, Patrick brings his calm demeanor and "can do" attitude to every lesson. As one woman recently remarked, "If it weren't for Patrick, I would have given up the game. Now I can't wait to tee it up!"
