Gregg Rogers Performance Golf Center opens up at Willows Run

Updated: July 3, 2012

At age 13, Gregg Rogers found himself a job in the golf business, working on the maintenance crew at a nearby golf course to his home.

Now, 36 years later he still finds himself in the golf business, this time being a golf instructor and one of the top club fitters. And he keeps on growing his business as well.

Rogers, who has had a teaching facility in Seattle since 2007, has opened up a new Gregg Rogers Golf Performance Center at Willows Run Golf Course in Redmond. The new facility includes two teaching bays at the end of the Willows Run driving range and includes a Taylor Made Performance Lab.

Rogers got his start in the Puget Sound area in 1996 when he took a job at Overlake Country Club becoming the director of instruction. In 2007, he decided to open his own teaching facility in the Bellevue area. The 3,300 square foot facility has four teaching bays, three launch monitors and two flight scopes.

A staff that includes professionals Joe Sievers, Chace Fraser, Davie Hendrix, Erich Bribbel, Ryan Brown and Mike Richmond help run the Bellevue and new Willows Run facilities. In addition, the facility is also a Golf Digest top clubfitter outfit with club fitters like Rogers, Richmond and Chris Mullane on the scene to help get the perfect clubs in golfer’s hands.

Rogers did try to give the professional route a try years ago, but in his words “failed miserably.” But along the way he found out that he could actually tell people how to swing and improve their games.

“Most guys asked for help and I was able to help,” said Rogers. “I just kind of kept that going and it’s turned into a good business.”
