Seacoast Golf Instructor in North Hampton NH...Laura Shanahan Rowe

Seacoast Golf Instructor in North Hampton NH...Laura Shanahan Rowe


In yesterday's postI told you how lucky we wereSagamore Golf Center in Seacoast NH to have our own Laura Shanahan Rowe, LPGA Golf Instructor right here at Sagamore Golf Center in North Hampton, NH. Well, today, I'm going to introduce you to her.

In order to learn more about our Seacoast Golf Instructor in North Hampton NH, I contacted Laura earlier this week and asked if she would be willing to meet me at Sagamore Golf Center for an interview, and she graciously agreed. Although I do spend some time at this driving range, I had never had the opportunity to meet Laura and looked forward to this interview.

At our first introduction, I was struck by three things - she is quite athletic, very competitive and more at ease with a golf club in her hand. Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, Laura was drawn to sports at a very early age. Her earliest sports interest was baseball, and her natural abilities as a young athlete helped her become quite proficient at the game. Unfortunately neither the American League or National League was likely to draft a woman player anytime soon and Laura was still driven to compete and be recognized for her talents.

It wasn't until she was 20, that she was introduced to the game of golf and loved it immediately. After all, the game is extremely competitive and requires dedication and conditioning, three of Laura's strengths.

Our Seacoast Golf Instructor in North HamptonAwards Plaque NH has earned a list of credentials that is quite impressive. Among her Amateur achievements, Laura Shanahan Rowe was three time winner of the New England Long Drive Championship in 1996. She won New Hampshire State Amateur in 1999 and 2002. She was named 2001 Women's Amateur Player of the Year by New England Journal of Golf. Laura was 2001 winner of USGA Women's Mid-Amateur Champion and 2002 winner of New England Women's Amateur Champion.

In her Professional career, our Seacoast Golf Instructor in North Hampton NH won the New England Women's Open in Rhode Island in 2006 and was 2008 LPGA T&CP (Teaching and Club Professional) winner at Pinehurst. Laura has been active in The Legends Tour, with 2nd place finishes in the Massachusetts Women's Open in 2004, the 2005 Hy-Vee Classic in Iowa and the Albuquerque Open in 2006. Our Seacoast Golf Instructor in North Hampton NH is currently ranked 33rd on The Legends Tour Career Money List.

Laura has managed all this while juggling her teaching career as LPGA Teaching Professional at Canterbury Woods Country Club, NH from 2004 to 2008, and now  teaches right here at Sagamore Golf Center in North Hampton, NH since 2009.

Laura's teaching philosophy is to tailor her instructionLaura's Swing Finish to each type of golfer: young, old, men and women to create a fun and enjoyable learning environment for her students. Her teaching strength comes from her LPGA playing experience, her determination and her innate athletic abilities.

So when you're ready to lose that slice you've had for years, why not call our Seacoast Golf Instructor, Laura Shanahan Rowe, schedule a lesson and let the pro help. You wouldn't try to do your own oral surgery, would you? Some things are better left to a professional.
