Mike Uffman has been a golf professional with the
Great Parks of Hamilton County since 2000, serving as an Assistant
Professional as Shawnee Lookout and Sharon Woods prior to his time as
Head Professional at Shawnee Lookout and Miami Whitewater Forest. Mike
understands that although students learn in a variety of ways, the one
common thread is the desire to learn. He is a proponent of launch
monitor analysis and other technologies to show the student exactly how
the swing influences the ball. From simple drills on the range to time
spent playing on the golf course, the time invested in learning the game
should be both fun and rewarding.
