Since Ryan Gray's 2005 graduation from the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach, he has been living out his dream. His first professional job was at Blue Ridge Country Club in Harrisburg, PA. He then advanced to two more Pennsylvania posts: First Assistant Golf Professional at French Creek Golf Club and later Head Golf Professional at Honeybrook Golf Club.

These days, Ryan is working as the Head Golf Professional at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. His education has played a large factor as he’s climbed the ranks of a golf professional.

"Golf Academy of America educated me on self-discipline, professionalism and facility operations," he says. "I learned the importance of running smooth golf tournaments and golf operations, of being professional through communication and handling difficult situations, all while maintaining a professional demeanor."
