I have been in the golf business for eight years now. I started my career at Cherokee Town & Country Club in Atlanta, Georgia. I accepted the position of First Assistant at The Country Club of the South in April of 2006. I accepted the position of Head Golf Professional at The Country Club of the South in June of 2010 under the new ownership of ClubCorp. Prior to my career in the golf industry, I spent eight years in the United States Marine Corps. After my Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps, I began a career in the Transportation and Logistics Management industry as an Operations Manager. 

I have been married for 13 years and have two wonderful daughters, 3 and 6 years of age. We live in Marietta, Georgia.

Shawn Koch

Role: PGA Director of Instruction
Serving Since: 2010

Creating an all encompassing guide to performance golf has been one of my greatest accomplishments. The accomplishment was achieved over the last nine years at the Golf Learning Center with an outstanding staff in golf fitness, junior golf specialization, and an unparalleled relationship with Mizuno USA. Being named 2008 and 2010 Georgia PGA North Chapter Teacher of Year proved that our style of golf instruction works. Golf performance at any level and in all areas can be broken down to three key components: control the clubface, the shape of the golf swing, and the motion of the body. We use these components to make the instruction specific and simple to follow and to maintain. Our goal is to work on progression not perfection. With an accomplished competitive career, I have been able to apply all my experience on the course to the lesson tee. Our ultimate goal is for our students to play their best and enjoy the game. 

I serve on multiple committees including the ClubCorp Golf Academy, where the development of golf programming and instructor certification across ClubCorp worldwide is established. I am married to Megan with children Phoebe and Jack.
