Head PGA Golf Professional
Shell Point Golf Course is pleased to introduce our new Golf Course Manager, Gary Keating. With 20 years of experience, Gary brings an accomplished background in all aspects of the profession, from playing and touring to teaching and managing.
A Class A PGA Member since 1991, Gary was named the Southwest Florida PGA Player of the Year in 1996, 1997 and 1999. He also qualified and played in the 1995 and 1997 Honda Classic.
Gary was featured in several golfing magazines after he made four Eagles in one round of golf in the Powder Puff Pro-Am in 1991 - the first time this feat was recorded in the history of golf! A 16-time Challenge Cup competitor, he played on the European Tour for three years and is a record holder at 19 golf courses.
As a teacher, Gary worked with 15 touring professionals from PGA tour, Senior PGA tour, LPGA tour, the Canadian Tour and the European tour. He was named PGA Southwest Florida Chapter Teacher of the Year in 2001 and 2002.
