All of the best players take regular lessons in order to keep their game in top form. Most amateurs are not trying to achieve the level of top professionals; however, regular instruction and coaching are important to improving and enjoying the game of golf.

APG Golf Professionals are available for lessons at Ruggles and Exton Golf Courses seven days a week. All lessons are by appointment only. Group lessons are also available. To defray some of the cost, form your own group of two or more. Playing lessons are available for up to three players. Please continue to check this Web site for upcoming clinics and events.

Lessons will be available at Exton Golf Course April through November. Call the Pro Shop at 410-436-2213 for more information and to schedule a lesson.

Ruggles' PGA Professional

Ruggles' resident PGA Professional began playing golf in 1974. After winning the 1989 Maryland Amateur Stroke Play Championship, he turned professional in 1990. He enjoys playing tournament golf and has won tournaments both as amateur and professional. He developed a loyal following of students shortly after he turned professional, and has been helping golfers of all ages and skills to improve their game for nearly 20 years.

The Ruggles PGA Professional also serves as the Head Coach of the Harford Community College men’s varsity golf team. He and his family reside in the Aberdeen area.

Ruggles' Golf Pro says, "My philosophy is quite simple: there is no such thing as one golf swing for everyone. I pride myself on being able to apply the correct swing principles to each person, based on his or her physical and psychological make up. I have one other basic belief: golf lessons should be enjoyable, as well as informative. Bottom line, my students improve! What may be even more important is they enjoy the process of improving, practicing, and working on their game."
