Innsbrook Resort recently announced the addition of Kevin Corn as its new PGA Head Golf Professional.
Corn’s experience includes two years as the head golf pro and eight years as first assistant at Glen Echo Country Club in St. Louis, one year at the Peninsula Club in North Carolina, and five years at award-winning resorts in Myrtle Beach, S.C., including the Legends Golf Resort and Wild Wing Plantation. He received his PGA status at age 22 and was at one time the youngest Class A PGA professional in the country.
“Innsbrook is an incredible facility and I am honored to be the new Head Golf Professional,” said Corn. “The entire golf staff is committed to providing a first-class golf experience to everyone who comes out to play. Whether it is a veteran golfer or a beginner, we will offer an enjoyable atmosphere to play golf in this beautiful setting.”
Kevin created, implemented, and currently runs the Junior Golf Program at Ranken-Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital, the only hospital in the country that provides rehabilitation and subacute medical treatment for children regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Corn has received several awards recently for his work and dedication to this program.
“The golf program at Ranken Jordan is very, very special to me,” said Corn. “May 10 marks our three year anniversary and to date we have positively impacted the lives of over 1,700 kids and their families. From something as simple as putting a smile on the face of a 5-year-old girl to watching a 13-year-old boy take the first steps of his life up to a putting green, the weekly golf clinics are very inspirational and humbling.”
Kevin resides in O’Fallon, Mo. His life in golf started when his father first put a golf club in his hands.
“I was 5 years old and I was hooked,” said Corn. “A reasonably successful junior career and a love for teaching the game, this part instilled by parents who worked in education, led me to pursue golf as a career. I went to Coastal Carolina University and earned a marketing degree with an emphasis on golf management, while at the same time completing my required PGA education and earning membership with the PGA of America.”
That’s not the only change that has come to the Innsbrook Golf Course in 2014. In January, Innsbrook contracted with Walter’s Golf Management to manage its course.
“Kevin is a respected PGA Class A golf professional,” said Lucy Mitchell, Walter’s Golf Management President Principal Partner. “He’s thrilled to be a part of the Innsbrook family and looks forward to providing Innsbrook property owners and daily fee golfers a fun and enjoyable experience.”
Innsbrook’s 18-hole public championship golf course is carved out of the rolling wooded hillsides of eastern Missouri. It offers dramatic elevation changes and scenic views, challenging low handicappers from the back tees as well as high handicappers and ladies from the forward tees.
