  • Morgan Lemieux

    Teaching Professional

    Morgan had a golf career that was a little different than most. She learned how to golf during her sophomore year of college and by the time her junior year of college arrived, she was a top contributor to the team. Within those two years alone, she lowered her scoring average by 14 strokes. During her second year on the Southern New Hampshire Women’s Golf team, Morgan won a Coach’s award for most improved, and began positioning herself as a leader in women’s NE10 Division 2 Golf Conference.

    At the Penmen Columbus Day Intercollegiate, Morgan shot a first round two over par 74, which not only place her fourth for the tournament, but also made her the new SNHU Women’s golf record holder. That same season, Morgan fired a one-under 71 to break her personal best and become the first woman on the team to shoot a sub-par round. Scoring a sub-par round is a rare feat accomplished only by those with advanced skills.

    In between seasons, Morgan continued competing in many golf championships throughout Massachusetts and New England, including her most recent showing at Essex County Club for the Massachusetts Women’s Amateur. Her great play in the stroke play competition allowed her to advance to the field of 32 in the match play portion of the tournament.

    In the spring of 2020, before COVID-19 made its debut, Morgan was selected to play on the Griscom Cup Team as a representative for Massachusetts. The pandemic ended her final season early, but she made enough of a showing to earn NE10 All-Conference Second Team honors after turning in four top-10 finishes and a pair of top-five showings in the always competitive NE10.

    Morgan is ready to pursue her dream of becoming a golf instructor to share her passion and help others improve their games and achieve their goals.
