    A. Jeffrey Pianelli, PGA
    Head Golf Professional


    Jeff Pianelli comes to us from Rivers Edge Golf Club in Shallotte, North Carolina. Rivers Edge is part of the North Myrtle Beach golf course group.

    He went to Delaware Valley University (DVU), Pennsylvania to play basketball. After an injury that ended his basketball career, he took up golf and spent the last two years of school on the golf team. In his Junior year he helped DVU win the MAC Championship.

    As a Golf Professional, Jeff is very passionate about teaching the game of golf. Seeing a novice player finally start to feel the confidence they need to play the game and enjoy it is what fuels his desire to be a Golf Pro.
