Many have taken note of the fruits of their labor with the upgrades to the course, as well as the Clubhouse, Golf Shop and Bayview Restaurant, but if you haven’t played at Cove Cay Golf Club in a while please make an effort to stop by soon.
Pat Shriver – PGA Pro, Cove Cay Golf Club Co-owner and Shriver Golf Academy Instructor
Pat Shriver has been a PGA Class A Golf Professional since 1995 and has been named Teacher Of The Year by the PGA North Florida and the North Florida West Central Chapter on numerous occasions. She’s also competed in golf her entire life including junior golf, high school and college golf, then Futures Tour Golf and currently the North Florida PGA Section tournament golf. Yet with all of her accomplishments, Pat is most proud of the successes her students have had playing golf over the years. She’s coached many junior golfers to college golf, and one all the way to the LPGA tour. Because she has a lifetime relationship with her students she’s now coaching second generations of families and says, “It’s the consistency that wins golf tournaments. It’s been so rewarding to see families play golf together and enjoy the game, and just as rewarding to see my students grow up playing golf and winning tournaments.” Read Pat’s full Bio
