Head Professional Ghost Creek
My name is Sebastain Stewart and I am your Head Golf Professional at Ghost Creek - Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. I was born & raised in Las Vegas Nevada and before I started my path to being a golf professional, I was racing amateur motocross around the west coast. I have always had a love for the game as a kid but did not start my journey in the golf industry until I was at Desert Pines Golf Club in Las Vegas back in 2010. Since 2017, I have been in the Pacific Northwest continuing to learn every aspect of the game and business at Pumpkin Ridge. While working my way through the ranks here at the club, I was promoted to Lead Assistant Golf Professional in 2019 and then I became the Head Golf Professional at Ghost Creek in April 2022. I am an aspiring PGA Professional that has learned a variety of lessons through multiple venues to understand how to teach the game to all ages and skill levels as well as help run a golf facility to meet all golfers' expectations. I look forward to meeting all of you and feel free to reach out to me for a lesson!
