Shawn has lived locally for the last fifteen years, spending time at Wentworth by the Sea Country Club, The Ledges, Old Marsh, and the Links at Outlook. Shawn’s teaching philosophy is to focus on the basics of the swing and not overload the student with too many swing thoughts.
Returning for her second season at CNCC is Kailey Coleman. A native of North Berwick, Kailey is starting her career as a Golf Professional, but she is certainly not new to the golf business. Kailey got her start in golf learning from her grandfather, a teaching professional. Attending Southern New Hampshire University on a golf scholarship, Kailey played four years for the Penmen, before earning a P.J. Boatwright Internship with the United States Golf Association and later working as an intern for the New Hampshire Golf Association. The last three years, she has spent working at The Club at Mediterra in Naples, Florida, but is excited to be returning home to her native Maine.
