Dean Johnson

Dean Johnson, our Head Golf Professional, has been a PGA Member since 1995. Over his 30 years as a Golf Professional, he developed his skills while working at Westchester Country Club, Saint Andrew’s and Fenway Golf Club.

All three Professionals Dean worked for won the coveted Merchandiser of the Year awards from the Met PGA during his tenure. In 2015, Dean was honored as the Merchandiser of the Year by the Met PGA. Leewood is proud to have Dean as the Head Golf Professional and congratulate him on this wonderful acheivement!

Playing tournament golf especially in the winter months had Dean traveling throughout the country playing various tours and PGA of America events. Though Dean had three titles to his name, being a PGA Head Professional became his desire. Since 2006, Dean has brought great experience to Leewood as an accredited club fitter, certified Flexor sports trainer, seasoned instructor and an experienced merchandiser. Dean brings exceptional instruction to the membership, fashioning his style from Leadbetter, McLean and Pelz while using video analysis. He is dedicated to every member at Leewood and will do everything possible to make our experience the best it can be.
