Greg Francis – Head Golf /Teaching Professional

Greg Francis has been at our beautiful, mountain golf courses for over 25 years. He was born and raised beneath the Georgia pines and made his way to North Carolina later in his life. He started here as a Cart Attendant and worked his way into the pro shop and has not left since. He has a wife, Jennifer, and three children, Gabrielle, Xavier, and India. You may recognize the names Gabrielle and India as they have been part of our golf team here at Rumbling Bald. Greg and Jennifer live here in Rumbling Bald and are property owners.

Greg’s gift of teaching is evident when you get to spend time with him on the range. His greatest attribute is his ability to mold his teachings around the student’s ability. He always finds a way to make sure that his students leave with new knowledge of the game and a smile on their face. His infectious personality along with his knowledge of the golf swing will put you at ease and you will see results right away!
