My name is Jody Davis, I was born in Lakeland, FL. and raised in Ocala, FL. Throughout my childhood I was active in all sports: football, baseball, wrestling, and golf. I attended Forest High school and was on the golf team for 3 years. After high school I attended Edison State College and Florida Gulf Coast University where I was enrolled in the PGA program. While enrolled in college I worked at La Playa Golf Club and Resort for nearly 5 years. While working there I really found my love for the game of golf. I later moved to South Carolina for an opportunity as an Assistant Professional at the Melrose Golf Club located on Daufuskie Island, a mile off the coast of Hilton Head Island. I gave my first lesson at Melrose 

to a member and part time resident named Michael O’Keefe, who is more famously known as Danny Noonan from the movie Caddy Shack. Unfortunately damage from Hurricane Matthew forced the course to close, at which time I moved back to Ocala. I developed my passion for teaching and growing the game in my nearly 3 years while at the Melrose Club and enjoy working with golfers of all skill levels. Outside of golf my hobbies include college football and fishing.
