"G.O.L.F...More Than A Game"

Gregg Wolff's Georgia Golf Hall of Fame                 1999 Induction Speech 


  Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Gregg Wolff moved to

Statesboro, Georgia in 1975 to attend Georgia Southern College (now

Georgia Southern University). While attending Georgia Southern, Gregg was a member of the nationally ranked men’s golf team and was an NCAA

Independent All American in 1976.

  Upon graduating from Georgia Southern, Gregg was fortunate to serve his PGA apprenticeship under nationally acclaimed golf instructor, Bob Spence, at Palmetto Dunes Resort, on Hilton Head Island. By this time, Palmetto Dunes Resort had become one of the southeast’s premier golf instruction facilities, hosting Golf Digest’s widely acclaimed Bob Toski Instructional School. During these golf schools at Palmetto Dunes, Gregg was assigned to assist renowned golf instructors, including Bob Toski, Davis Love, Jr., and Peter Kostis, all of whom proved to be influential in Gregg’s own teaching methods and philosophy. In 1978, Gregg won his first professional golf tournament, The Mary Calder Invitational in Savannah, Georgia. He went on to win this tournament six more times. Gregg competed in mini tours in Florida, Arizona, California,

South Carolina and Massachusetts, winning five events, as well as claiming numerous top ten finishes.


   With the desire to spend more time with family, Gregg took a manager/head golf professional position at Willow Lake Golf Club, in his wife’s hometown of Metter, Georgia - a position he held for 41 years (March 1981 to April 2022.) During his early years as manager

and head golf professional at Willow Lake, Gregg had the opportunity to

continue playing competitive golf, winning: The 1984 and 2003 Georgia PGA Match Play Championships; the 1990 Atlanta Open; the 1985, 1987 and 1988 Georgia PGA Championships and the 1991 Georgia Open. After winning the Georgia Open in 1991, Gregg joined Dewitt Weaver, Jr. as being the only two Georgia PGA golf professionals to have won all four Georgia PGA major championships, known as the Georgia PGA Grand Slam. To date, only two other professionals, Matt Peterson and Tim Weinhart, have joined Weaver and Wolff in capturing all four Georgia major championships. As a senior, Gregg qualified for the 2004 U.S. Senior Open, won the 2005 and 2009 Georgia PGA Senior Championship, and the 2005 and 2009 Georgia PGA Senior Section Professional Championship. Gregg won the Georgia PGA Player of the Year Award seven times, received the 1996 Georgia PGA Junior Golf Leader Award and was honored in 1998 by being named the Georgia PGA Golf Professional of the Year. Gregg has competed in eleven PGA National Club Professional Championships, seven Senior National Club Professional Championships and played in the 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick.

On January 9, 1999, Gregg was inducted into the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame.

In 2001, the Georgia PGA established an award in his honor, The Gregg

Wolff Award, which will be forever awarded to the Georgia PGA member

having the lowest stroke average each tournament season.

Throughout his professional career, Gregg has dedicated himself to

growing the game of golf by instructing and inspiring golfers of all ages. He has guided well over one hundred students to earning golf scholarships from various colleges and universities across the southeastern United States.


   After his 41 year tenure as Manager/Head Golf Professional of Willow Lake Golf Club, Gregg is now focusing on his lifelong passion of teaching others the art of the game of golf. In addition to teaching both private lessons and group clinics through The Gregg Wolff Golf Academy, Gregg also continues to grow the game while off the course, through public speaking engagements. His successful and rewarding golf career has provided him with 50+ years of wisdom, golf expertise, and plenty of humorous anecdotes to share through his entertaining and unique style of speaking. The advice and heartfelt life lessons that Gregg brings to his listeners are informative and motivational for success both on and off the course.

"During my PGA Tour playing days, I would often visit Gregg and his family in Metter.  During these visits, we enjoyed long discussions about the swing and the fundamentals. Gregg always talked about controlling the club face by keeping it square throughout the swing.   He played golf that way.  Looking back,  he was 30 years ahead of his time.  It is the key fundamental of the modern swing.

“This man loves the game, but more importantly, he truly cares about his students and their success. He is the best by far. All three of my children were taught and coached by him and always remember the positive impact he’s made in their lives.”

“Gregg is someone who in giving a golf lesson is on a mission, and he is as much a cheerleader as he is a golf instructor. He can make you feel the golf swing, but more importantly, he instills in the people he works with his passion for the game, and that enthusiasm is inspiring.”

(Excerpt from “A History of Golf in Georgia” by John Companiotte)

“I highly recommend learning golf’s fundamentals through Coach Gregg’s instructions. My granddaughter plays competitive golf and wins her age group (15-18.) She is under the instruction of Coach Gregg.”

Charles Moore: Claxton, Georgia

"Gregg is an amazing golf teacher and even better person! We are so blessed he is in our area. I told a friend of mine who hit a weak slice most of his life, "Go see Gregg Wolff in Metter, and he'll have you hitting a draw in 20 min." My friend texted me after the lesson. He said, "You were wrong. Only took him 15." Gregg has my highest recommendation!"
