Shawn Hoefle, Freeport Club PGA


Shawn is originally from the Dakota area, and grew up playing golf at courses in the surrounding areas. In 2006 he went to the Golf Academy of America in Orlando, FL. Graduating in 2008, Shawn accepted a job as an Assistant Golf Professional at Geneva Golf & Country Club in Muscatine, Iowa.

While at Geneva, Shawn was involved in a successful junior program that averaged 60-90 juniors of all ages during his four years in Muscatine. Participating in several Iowa PGA golf tournaments, Shawn and one of the juniors won the Pro-Junior on two different occasions! Geneva is home to all three of Shawn’s Hole-in-Ones, including two in the same day!

In 2012, Shawn decided to move closer to his hometown and worked at Timber Point Golf Club in Poplar Grove for a year before accepting a job at the former “Freeport Country Club”. Shawn was elected into the PGA of America in February of 2014 and is beginning his 3rd year as the Head Golf Professional while looking forward to a fresh start at the newly revamped Freeport Club!
