Colorado PGA Best Practices


The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know!

Andy Hilts, PGA | Vice-President of Teaching and Education at GolfTEC

Andy Hilts is the PGA Vice President of Instruction and Education at GolfTEC.  He was named the 2005 Teacher of the Year and twice won the Horton Smith Award, first in 2008 and then in 2015.
