Abby Welch

The core of my teaching philosophy is to grow the game of golf through everyone I work with. It is imperative to teach the game in each student’s individual learning style. Continuous growth of my personal methodology is always at the forefront. We as PGA/LPGA Professionals must never forget we are role models on and off the lesson tee.

Golf lessons are given at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Please feel free to contact me at the Tommy Cuthbert Learning Center for more information 843-266-4030 or email me at
