Golf & Yoga Instructor
Tawnie PIcture
Tawnie was born and raised in our beautiful valley and began golfing at the age of 12 at Carson Valley Golf Course where she participated in junior programs, private lessons, and getting out on the course with her dad, where her love of the game grew.  She played for the Douglas High School girl's golf team and has been in the golf business including teaching and instruction for over 10 years.
Most recently, Tawnie has taught a college-level golf class to community members eager to learn golf or sharpen their skills while earning college credit. She has been an integral part of the PGA Jr. League at Carson Valley Golf Course and is excited about the upcoming season. Her favorite part about teaching is watching students get excited about golf and have fun while learning a skill that will benefit them for a lifetime. She specializes in teaching beginners, women, and juniors while breaking down the intimidating barriers and stigmas that can come with learning how to play golf. She is all about having fun, getting outside, and building community at the golf course! 

Tawnie is a certified yoga instructor and loves to incorporate yoga into golf instruction. Yoga is an excellent way to increase strength and flexibility while reducing stress which benefits golfers on and off the course!
