Head Golf Professional

Cary McGaughey

Growing up in Marietta, Georgia, Cary’s interest in golf started while working at his local Golf Club for PGA professional George Preisinger. At fourteen years of age Cary worked in the bagroom and also the golf shop. As he got hooked on golf, Cary also began to show interest in the golf business in general and how events were run. While attending Georgia Southern College, Cary returned each summer to work at his home club. After turning professional, Cary began working for renowned Master PGA Professional and National Professional of the year John Gerring at Atlanta Country Club. Atlanta Country Club was a wonderful environment for a young professional to hone his skills.

As a Golf Digest top 100 golf course Atlanta Country Club was home for many top amateurs and professionals in the state and host club for The Atlanta Golf Classic. While working for John Gerring, Cary not only enhanced his business skills but also his teaching philosophies. Cary would watch John Gerring give lessons and also listen to his friends who would come by visit and talk teaching philosophies such as Bob Toski, Manuel Delatorre and local member Larry Nelson.

Cary has used all his tutelage and experiences from Atlanta Country Club to enhance and elevate the golf program and service level at Mayacoo Lakes C. C... For the past 21 years, his students have captured many titles from local Club Championships to Mini-tour events. As a merchandiser, Cary was awarded by his peers the 2000 South Florida PGA Merchandiser of the Year Award for Private Clubs and recognized by The PGA of America for his twenty – five years of service as a PGA member. Cary has hosted many events at Mayacoo Lakes including local charities such as Hanley Hazelton, Youth for Christ and Palm Beach County Amateur Championships, State and US Amateur qualifiers as well as many PGA Club professional Championship events. His own Member-Guest events are second to none.

Cary’s door is always open for his membership and his staff. Being available at any time for his member’s speaks very highly of Cary and resonates through the Club that Golf is Mayacoo Lakes and Mayacoo Lakes is Golf!
