Mike Pritchett

I was born and raised in Dawsonville, Georgia and currently reside in Gainesville, Ga.  My love and passion for the game of golf began playing local courses in North Gerogia.  I worked at Chestatee Golf Club as an Assistant Golf Professional for 4 years and that's where my passion for the game grew and turned into a career.  At Chestatee I was the junior leader, worked in the pro shop, and repaired clubs.  I am working and striving to get through the PGA PGM program to become a class "A" professional.  I enjoy teaching players of all ages to help them achieve their golfing goals.
