Ryan is originally from the Lehigh Valley, graduating from Northwestern Lehigh High School in 1995.
After attending Penn State University’s Professional Golf Management Program, Ryan accepted a position at Hudson National Golf Club in Croton, New York and remained in the New York area for over twenty seasons.
During that time he was fortunate to gain access to many of the Top 100 Teachers in the game, taken their insights and developing them into his own style and philosophy.
For the past two seasons, Ryan has been back in the Lehigh Valley serving as the Head Golf Professional at Woodstone Country Club in Danielsville, PA. and a teaching professional at the Bethlehem Golf Club this past year.
He is a Certified Instructor for Plane Truth Golf, Certified Level 1 TPI Fitness, and uses a Trackman launch monitor.
Ryan is eager to be a big part of your journey in this game. Whether you are a beginner looking to sample the sport or a high level competitor looking to WIN, Ryan’s passion for teaching and coaching will help take you to the next level.
“I came to Ryan as a beginner in golf. With his guidance, encouragement, and expertise, I not only improved but feel more comfortable on the course. His sensible approach to the game has boosted my confidence and with him at my side I look forward to learning more. Thanks Ryan!”
I’ve known Ryan for a long time now. He is a lot of fun to work with and even though my time is limited, he always kept me on track and motivated to continue to work at it. I completely entrust him with my golf swing with his proven ability to bring out a new golfer in me year after year.
I highly recommend Ryan Shaughnessy as an outstanding golf teacher. I took lessons from him for years at our Connecticut club. He is very good at analyzing the flaws in a golf swing and is always able to come up with a simple solution. Unlike many pros, he doesn’t overcomplicate the situation or suggest changes that are outside the golfer’s skill range. I will never be a professional golfer but Ryan was always able to get me to play up to my potential, and that’s what I want. In addition, he’s a good listener, a confidence builder and a fine person.
