PGA assistant professional, Whitney Young, leads the golf instruction for women and youth at Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton. A Pittsburgh native, Whitney honed her skills on courses in both her home state and West Virginia before heading to Florida.
In West Virginia, Whitney was part of the Wheeling Jesuit University Women’s Golf Team for four years. The team won two Conference championships, two Southern Regional, and a Northern Regional championship. She was also named All Conference 3 out of the 4 years. In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Whitney scored Player of the Year honors at West Penn Minority Junior Golf Association and was named P.J. Boatwright Medalist at the A, B, and C levels for three years.
As assistant at Pittsburgh North Golf Course, Range & School, Whitney helped owner Patricia Price, the first woman to qualify for PGA membership in the Tri-State Section, with the day-to-day operations of the facility. Whitney was also responsible for instruction of junior clients and the conducting of tournaments.
Even while actively pursuing her own passion for golf, Whitney took time to play a key role in inspiring a love for the sport among youth. Through First Tee of Pittsburgh, Whitney provided young people with character-building and life-skills lessons using golf as a platform. She continues to combine golf instruction with youth development in her current role at Broken Sound Club.
