Steven Shelley is an Assistant Golf Professional and Associate PGA Member with a unique and interesting history. Like many golfers before him, his passion for the game of golf began as a 10-year old caddy at Ridgewood Country Club in Danbury, CT, and as he grew, so did his love for the game. After graduating high school, Steve joined the US Navy’s Submarine Service where his service took him around the globe. Even in far off locales, Steve’s golf clubs were by his side playing in Italy, Greece, Cypress, Bahrain, Spain, and the Canary Islands. After a prestigious 20-year career Steve retired from the Navy and took a position as an Engineer building and testing navigation and weapons systems at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton, CT. Despite this career path, Steve’s true passion was always the game of golf. In 2021, Steve dedicated himself to becoming an expert in the game establishing himself as an Associate PGA member, with his sights on Class “A” PGA Membership.

With a “keep it simple” philosophy, Steve is committed to helping others improve and enjoy the game, and his ultimate goal is to share his passion and enthusiasm for the game with our membership and their guests. Steve currently resides in Salem, CT. Outside of the game he enjoys spending time with his family, woodworking, archery, watching PSU Nittany Lions football and drinking anything aged in oaken barrels.
