A 2013 graduate of Windsor High School, Justin participated in the Class 4A state golf tournament as a senior and has made golf his life.
Nearly 10 years later he was hired as an assistant golf professional at his hometown’s newest golf course, RainDance National Resort & Golf.
“I am very fortunate for my life to come full circle back to where I started,” Justin said. “You never seem to realize how much home really means to you until you leave and make your way back. It’s such a blessing to help make an impact and a difference in the same community that gave me so much growing up.”
After high school, Justin played golf at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO and Trinidad (CO) State College. Justin shined at Trinidad State as he twice was named the Region IX Player of the Year.
Justin turned professional after college and moved to Arizona to compete in mini tours. While in Arizona, he qualified for the 2021 Arizona Open and worked at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Fort McDowell and Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix.
Justin accepted the position at RainDance National after a brief stint at Eaton Country Club, and is currently enrolled in the PGA PGM program on his way to become a Class A professional.
When he’s not working on his golf game, Justin is an accomplished bowler and spends time with his fiancé Karlee and her son Gunner.
