SOME SIX MONTHS after its highly-regarded pro John Ogden left to become the director of golf at Jack Nicklaus’ Muirfield Village in Ohio, Cherry Hills Country Club recently announced a replacement—Andrew Shuck. Just the seventh head pro in the prestigious club’s 99-year history, Shuck is coming to Colorado after spending more than a decade at the Charlotte Country Club. He’s also been a head pro at the Ocean Forest Golf Club, in Sea Island, Georgia and the McArthur Golf Club, in Hobe Sound, Florida.
In 2017, Shuck won the Carolina PGA Section Bill Strausbaugh Award, which recognizes a PGA Professional who demonstrates exception- al character, integrity and leadership by way of teaching and mentoring other PGA Professionals, Shuck has mentored 21 former Assistant Golf Professionals who went on to earn PGA Head Golf Professional positions throughout the industry.
The following year, Charlotte hosted the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship; in 2023, Cherry Hills is slated to host the U.S. Amateur for a third time—the club also held the event in 1990 and 2012.
In between now and then, Shuck will help shepherd a major, multi-million dollar renovation project at the club, which includes a new club- house along with new kitchen and dining facilities.
