Jamie Michas, PGA Class A

Staff Instructor / Program Administrator

Jamie was born and raised in Colorado and grew up playing all over but spent most of her time improving her game and working at Murphy Creek Golf Course and other City of Aurora courses. She found her passion for teaching while coaching PGA Junior League teams and watching kids fall in love with golf. This led her to the PGA Golf Management Program at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs where she earned her Class A PGA Membership and Business degree. Since then, she has worked at Valley Country Club, Pinehurst Country Club, and the UCCS PGA Golf Management Program and volunteered with various organizations in golf.

With a passion for helping people of all ages, Jamie believes in making golf as fun and welcoming as possible for everyone. The true enjoyment in teaching for her is helping people feel that on the golf course and seeing those “ah-ha” moments where golf skills and movements click and make sense. When she’s not at the golf course, Jamie can be found on a walk or hike with her husband and dog.
