Trevor Martinet
Assistant Golf Professional

Raised in Colorado, Trevor is an accomplished athlete.  As a Division 2 men's soccer player, Trevor garnered Academic All-American honors at CSU Pueblo.  He took up golf his senior year as his soccer career came to an end and has been obsessed with the sport ever since.  Trevor has put in countless hours into studying and practicing the game of golf passing his PAT in 2015.  He has the great ability to relate to new golfers and help them immensely through early learning curves as he learned the game later in life.  "Too many golfers become obsessed with the perfect swing mechanics and forget that golf is a game with a purpose.  I love teaching the game and seeing students enjoy themselves more as they shoot better scores."
