Grand Geneva's Golf Pros
Jason Boaz | PGA Head Golf Professional
Jason Boaz joined the Grand Geneva in 2008, drawing on 15 years experience as a professional golf instructor at courses across the United States. Journeying from Pointe Hilton Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, to TPC Prestancia in Sarasota, Florida, to his current position at the Grand Geneva, Boaz places his focus on two goals: teaching golfers techniques that will improve their scores and helping amateurs embrace the game.
“Over the years, I’ve learned there’s no right or wrong way to swing a golf club,” says Boaz. “It’s my job to tailor everyone’s golf swing to match their abilities.”
Growing up as the son of a golf course grounds keeper, Boaz won local golf tournaments and starred on the golf team at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. In 1995, he made the decision to change careers to become a professional golf instructor. He completed each phase of the professional golf management PGA program in less than a year.
After studying under Allen Austin at Vestavia Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama, Boaz returned to the Midwest in 2000, where he honed his craft as a head professional at Hunters Ridge in Marion, Iowa, Whispering Springs in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and Silver Springs Golf and Banquet Center in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. He became a member of the PGA Council for mentoring assistant golf professionals in 2005.
Since joining the Grand Geneva, Boaz has introduced a “come-one, come-all” philosophy to the resort’s two championship golf courses: the challenging par-72 American-style Brute and the Scottish-style, tree-lined Highlands course. His initiatives—family golf outings, charity scrambles, and programs dedicated to helping women learn the game — led to nominations from the PGA President’s Council for growing the game in 2008 and 2009.
“The majority of golfers who come to Grand Geneva just want to have fun,” says Boaz. “They want to hit the ball with more consistency and accuracy. And I’m happy to say I can help them do just that.”
