Ricky is one of the newest coaches to join the Little Linksters family. He was born and raised in Elizabeth, NJ. He graduated locally from Lake Brantley High School; graduated with his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida; and received a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Stetson University. Ricky’s interest in golf began when his son wanted to learn how to play. His son’s drive for competition, pushed the two of them to improve quickly in the sport, even competing regularly as a two-some in local tournaments.
Combined with his passion for teaching and working with kids, it was only a matter of time before Ricky was certified as a Junior Golf Coach.
Before coaching golf, Ricky was a high school mathematics and entrepreneurship teacher and has worked at the state level in education supporting underserved schools in Florida.
His experience as a classroom teacher, support coach for effective instructional practices, and his love of golf have helped him excel as a Little Linksters Junior Golf Coach.
