Plans Include New Golf School at Fort Mill Golf Club, Greater Offerings for Camps, Clinics, Lessons and More
FORT MILL, SC, MARCH 13, 2015: Marc Lapointe is joining with the Fort Mill Golf Course and Leroy Springs & Company, Inc. to bring a new level of golf instruction to the area. While Marc’s initial focus will be in Fort Mill, he will be branching out to all four courses, including Fort Mill, Springfield, Lancaster and Chester Golf Courses before long.
“We welcome Marc to our Springs Golf family and look forward to the strong program he will build,” said Gene Roper, Leroy Springs Director of Golf. “Marc is a nationally recognized golf instructor and brings a wealth of talent and experience to our courses. Marc’s program will build on the strong interest in golf we have seen expressed in the popularity of our recent partnership with First Tee of Charlotte. Together, our goal is to make the game of golf accessible to all ages and abilities.”
Marc comes to Leroy Springs from the Dana Rader Golf School at The Golf Club at Ballantyne where he has taught since 2003, most recently as the Director of Instruction. Marc has been honored for his work with junior golfers by being named among the top teachers in the country by U.S. Kids Golf; in 2013–14, Marc was ranked #6 in the Best Teachers in NC by Golf Digest. Marc's golf tips have been published in Carolina Golf Journal and Ballantyne Magazine.
While he teaches students at all levels of the game, Marc emphasizes the importance of fundamentals as a core element of his instruction. A native of Montreal, Marc played collegiate golf at Coker College and is now a committed Southerner.
Marc said, “I’m thrilled to be working with Springs Golf to develop programs that will help golfers of all abilities improve their game and enhance their enjoyment of the sport.”
