Meet the new golf instruction team

We have recently developed an award winning instruction team here at Wilderness Ridge that has credentials making it one of the top instruction teams in the state of Nebraska.

Chris Thomson is the Head Professional. Chris has been a part of Lincoln for the past 13 years and resides here with his wife Jane and two sons, Hayden and Carter. Chris is the Honorary President of PGA Nebraska Section and two-time PGA Golf Professional of the Year. Thomson has a record of success in all phases of golf operations with a particular emphasis on instruction.

"I'm such a people person and I really look forward to building a rapport with all the members", Thomson said. "The Wilderness Ridge golf course and facilities are second to none in Nebraska, and we have a great team of professionals to offer instruction to Lincoln golfers."

Mike Schuchart is the Director of Instruction for the Nebraska Golf Academy. He is an accomplished player and has been recognized by the PGA as Nebraska Teacher of the Year and named Golf Digest Teacher of the Year.

Maureen Farrell is the Assistant Golf Pro and club shop manager. Farrell was an assistant professional at Carnoustie Golf Club in Scotland in 2007 when the club hosted the British open. Farrell was also an assistant professional at Pinehurst number two in the Sandhills of North Carolina.

No need to wait for warmer weather to stop in the golf shop to say hello to our new team! Maureen has been filling the shelves with new merchandise and the Golf Academy is always open!
